Governance

SCCWRP is governed by a 14-member board known as the SCCWRP Commission. Made up of senior managers from Southern California’s largest wastewater treatment agencies, stormwater management agencies and water-quality regulatory agencies, the Commission represents the preeminent group of public agencies responsible for protecting Southern California’s coastal ocean and the watersheds that drain to it.

During quarterly public meetings at SCCWRP, Commissioners oversee SCCWRP’s research portfolio, discuss how to transfer the latest science to routine management applications, and build consensus around how science can and should inform aquatic ecosystems management. The Commission serves as a primary vehicle through which SCCWRP science gets translated into environmental actions, decisions and policies.

The Commission has empaneled a standing committee known as the Commission’s Technical Advisory Group (CTAG) to serve as the primary technical link between SCCWRP and its member agencies.
