Water Resources Council
The Tompkins County Water Resources Council (WRC) advises the Tompkins County Legislature on matters related to water resources management and planning, and is charged with identifying problems, proposing priorities, and promoting the coordination of activities in the management and protection of the County's water resources. The WRC provides a public forum for local communities and stakeholder groups to address and discuss their water resources concerns, and it is the intent of the group to coordinate the water resources-related efforts of local governments, public and private institutions, and agencies and organizations throughout the County.
Residents of Tompkins County are invited to attend meetings of the WRC and apply for WRC membership (application form). The Water Resources Council meets the third Monday of each month from 4:15 to 6:00 PM. Meetings that conflict with federal holidays are rescheduled. There is usually no meeting in August. For more information, contact the Tompkins County Planning and Sustainability Department. Learn more about us.
