SWC Commission - Technical Review Committee
The Technical Review Committee (TRC) provides technical advice to the commission on best management practices (BMPs) and assists the Nonpoint Source Pollution Section in developing average costs for the Cost Share Program. General Statute 106-852 requires the TRC to meet regularly to review the progress of the Agriculture Cost Share Program.
District involvement and participation are very important to the TRC, and the TRC often solicits input by the districts on various issues, including types of BMPs, BMP specifications and average costs. Supervisors, district staff and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) personnel have a standing invitation to attend TRC meetings and participate in the discussions. The TRC holds at least half of its yearly meetings outside of Raleigh. If you have any issues you would like the committee to address, please contact Kelly Hedgepeth or any of the members listed below.
