SWC Commission - AgWRAP Review Committee

The Agricultural Water Resources Assistance Program Review Committee (ARC) provides technical and programmatic recommendations to the Commission on best management practices (BMPs) and average costs for AgWRAP. The ARC meets regularly, and meeting information is available bleow.. 

District involvement and participation are very important to the ARC, and the ARC often solicits input by the districts on various issues, including types of BMPs, BMP specifications and average costs. Supervisors, district employees and partnership staff have a standing invitation to attend ARC meetings and participate in the discussions.
