Recruitment for Dan River Region Clean Water Stakeholder Committees

February 27, 2017

There are streams and creeks violating water quality standards for bacteria in the Dan River region. Challenges include lack of information, litter, agricultural runoff and lack of riparian buffer. Once problems are identified for our waterways, the next step is to create a plan that reduces pollutants. The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA), through a generous grant from the River Bank Fund of the Community Foundation of the Dan River Region, is recruiting active stakeholder committees to develop projects that will result in improved water quality in our watershed.  

There are three stakeholder committees: Residential, Urban and Agriculture.

Each group will:

·         Develop both short-term and long-term strategies to decrease stressors on our waterways

·         Have access to funding to complete priority projects

·         Determine how to keep their committee sustained in the future


We Need You!

As a Clean Water Stakeholder, you don't have to be an expert in water quality. We are looking for individuals with an interest in improving their region, a passion for a clean environment and dedication to the project.  As a stakeholder, you also agree to:

 ·  Give your time and energy and attend four working group meetings and online discussions or events as necessary and related to your focus area.

·   Make a serious commitment to participate actively in the committee activities, stay informed about group matters, prepare well for meetings, and review notes and reports.

·   Volunteer for, and willingly accept, assignments and complete them thoroughly.

·    Be an active participant in the committee's evaluation and future planning efforts.

·    Participate in discussions and activities related to sustainability for the stakeholder committee.
