Commission Meetings

SCCWRP is governed by the 14-member SCCWRP Commission. SCCWRP Commission meetings provide a neutral, collaborative forum for Southern California’s water-quality management community to meet face to face to discuss, debate and solve pressing issues. The SCCWRP Commission holds four quarterly meetings per year. The meetings typically run about three hours and are open to the public.
