Drinking Water Advisory Group

We established the Drinking Water Advisory Group (DWAG) in 2013 because we want to hear from our drinking water partners on important issues. Meetings cover a range of drinking water discussion topics, including general updates, new rules, policy, and budget issues. Anyone working in the drinking water industry is welcome to attend.

DWAG meets four times a year on the first Monday of March and June, the second Monday of September (due to the Labor Day holiday), and the first Monday of December, starting at 9 a.m. We use Microsoft Teams to video conference with all attendees. The MS Teams meeting link is printed at the top of the agenda (it's different every time) and provided in the email bulletin.

Agendas for the next meeting are typically posted a month before the meeting. If you have a discussion item for the agenda, please send your idea to Brad Burnham.

Meeting materials and handouts are usually posted prior to the meeting, as we receive them. Handouts received at the meeting are posted directly following the meeting.

To receive notices about future meetings, please join our advisory group email list.

If you have questions about the advisory group, please email Brad Burnham.
