Water Re-Use Task Force

The purpose of the AIC Water Re-Use Task Force (WRU-TF) is to review of the existing Idaho State laws and rules pertaining to water re-use with the intention of identifying whether changes to the existing laws and rules should be pursued.  If modifications are identified, the WRU-TF will develop a recommended strategy to advocate for the changes.  These recommendations shall be brought to the MWU Group for review and approval prior to forwarding them along to the AIC Board.

The WRU-TF will also determine whether supplemental outreach or education is needed in order to accomplish the identified objectives.

During the June 22, 2017, Joint Environment & Municipal Water Users Committee Meeting it was decided to form an AIC Water Re-Use Task Force (WRU-TF).  The WRU-TF will be chaired by Boise Council Member & AIC Environment Committee Chair Elaine Clegg.  Members of the WRU-TF will include both elected and technical representatives.


An initial in-person meeting was held in October 2017, with a second meeting planned in conjunction with the January 2018 AIC Water Summit.  The main purpose of these meetings will be to review the existing Idaho State laws and rules, and determine whether modifications shall be pursued.  If the WRU-TF identifies modifications or additional review needs, the WRU-TF will meet during May 2018 to establish advocacy strategies and meeting schedules.
