Citizen Advisory Committee

RCWD’s Citizen Advisory Committee (CAC) is an appointed group of residents and representatives from various organizations who work together to advise and assist the RCWD managers in matters concerning the watershed district.

The CAC plays a crucial role in making recommendations on projects and activities within the district. The CAC ensures a comprehensive understanding of the community’s needs. Members are encouraged to serve for more than one year, allowing them to develop expertise in RCWD operations, and staggered terms ensure a balance of experienced and new members who actively participate in meetings throughout the year.


Two spots to serve on the committee are open for Anoka county residents.
