The Watershed Work Group Members have an important oversight role to play during VSP implementation.  Policy Advisory 03-18 explains that the watershed work group members have many different duties during implementation, so it is important that they read and understand the county’s VSP work plan, receive training in the background and history of VSP, as well as how the work group functions as an entity of the county.  Watershed work group meetings are open public meetings under the Open Public Meetings Act, RCW Chapter 42.30, so all volunteer members of the watershed work group will need to be familiar with the OPMA and should undergo the attorney general’s OPMA training.  Remember, OPMA refresher training is required every four years. For more details on VSP watershed work groups during implementation, please see the  December 2017 VSP regional meeting presentation materials.
