Nominations sought for state Water Commission


The state is seeking nominations to the Commission on Water Resource Management. A nominating committee will screen the applicants and send to the governor the names of at least three individuals for one open position.

The Water Commission is composed of seven members that have jurisdiction and final authority on matters relating to implementation and administration of the state Water Code.

Five members are appointed by the governor subject to confirmation by the state Senate. Other members by law are the chairperson of the Board of Land and Natural Resources, who serves as chairperson of the Water Commission, and the director of the Department of Health.

State law requires that each member have “substantial experience in the area of water resource management.” Members serve without pay except for reimbursement for expenses, including travel, necessary to do the job.

Nominations along with resumes and applications for the State Boards and Commissions may be sent by Nov. 22, 2010 to the Nominating Committee, Commission on Water Resource Management, 1151 Punchbowl Street, Room 227, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813.
