NOMINATIONS SOUGHT FOR STATE WATER COMMISSION MEMBERS

News Release from DLNR

HONOLULU - The State Commission on Water Resource Management is seeking nominations for two positions on the Commission. A Nominating Committee will screen the applicants and send the names of at least three individuals for each open position to the Governor.

The positions include one current vacancy, to be filled immediately, and a July 1, 2012 vacancy for a position with experience in Hawaiian water rights.

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. 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 serve ex-officio by virtue of their office.

State law requires that each member have “substantial experience in the area of water resource management.” The July 2012 position must have “substantial experience or expertise in traditional Hawaiian water resource management techniques and in traditional Hawaiian riparian usage.” Members serve without pay except for reimbursement for expenses, including travel, necessary to do the job.

Nominations along with resumes and applications should be sent to the Nominating Committee, Commission on Water Resource Management, 1151 Punchbowl Street, Room 227, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813 and postmarked no later than December 16, 2011.

For more information, see the Commission’s website at http://hawaii.gov/dlnr/cwrm and download the application form. Application forms may be obtained at the Commission’s office at the above address.
