Water Commission needs one member

The Nominating Committee for the State Commission on Water Resource Management is accepting applications for one position on the commission. The Nominating Committee will review the applications and send the names of not less than three qualified individuals to the governor, who will nominate one person for the vacant position. The term of the new appointee will begin after the governor selects from the list of qualified applicants. The appointment is subject to confirmation by the Senate in 2015. The remaining term for this position will expire on June 30, 2016.

The commission has jurisdiction and final authority over matters relating to the State Water Code. The governor appoints five of the seven members. The chairman of the Board of Land and Natural Resources and the director of the Department of Health are voting ex-officio members.

State law requires that each member have “substantial experience in the area of water resource management.” Commission members serve a four-year term without pay, although expenses are reimbursed.

Applications and resumes may be sent to: Nominating Committee, Commission on Water Resource Management, 1151 Punchbowl St., Room 227, Honolulu, HI 96813. Applications should be postmarked no later than Aug. 29.
