County commissioners are accepting applications for a vacancy on the area water conservancy board.
The board processes requests to transfer or change existing water rights but not applications for new rights. The state Department of Ecology has the final say on board decisions.
Candidates must be residents of Thurston County. Appointees must have training and approval by the Ecology Department and meet continuing education requirements. Board members are volunteers.
For more information, contact board secretary Michael Schwisow at 360-705-1975 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or its coordinator at Ecology, Janet Carlson, at 509-329-3421 or jaca461@ ecy.wa.gov, or go to www.co.thurston.wa.us/bocc/boards-vacancies.htm.
