Project Advisory Group

Project Advisory GroupEarly in the project a Project Advisory Group (PAG) was formed to advise and guide the research process. By the project's conclusion, the PAG included approximately 30 stakeholders with expertise in water resources management from diverse sectors including local, state and federal governments, non-profits, and the private sector. This group did double duty by vetting ideas in advance, and then reviewing final results after contracted projects were completed.
