The EPA announced in the Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2010, Federal Register that it is inviting all interested persons to nominate qualified individuals to serve a three-year term as members of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council.
The 15-member council was established by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to provide practical and independent advice, consultation and recommendations to the agency on the activities, functions, policies, and regulations required by the SDWA.
Each year the terms of five members expire. To maintain the representation required in the statute, nominees for the 2011 Council should represent state and local officials concerned with public water supply and public health protection (two vacancies), the general public (one vacancy) and organizations or groups demonstrating an active interest in the field of public water supply and public health protection (two vacancies).
All nominations will be fully considered, but applicants need to be aware of the specific representation needed as well as geographical balance so that all major areas of the U.S. (East, Mid-West, South, Mountain, South-West, and West) will be represented. The current list of members is available on the EPA Web site at: http://water.epa.gov/aboutow/ogwdw/ndwac/index.cfm.
Submit nominations on or before Oct. 31, 2010.
