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 is chaired by Boise Council Pro Tem Elaine Clegg.  Members of the WRU-TF include both elected and technical representatives.


An initial in-person meeting was held in October 2017 on water quality rules, regulations, and policies enforced by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. A second in-person meeting was held in May 2018 on water quantity rules, rights, regulations, and policies enforced by the Idaho Department of Water Resources.  Updates were provided at the January 2018 AIC Water Summit and the AIC Municipal Water Users Group meeting held during the AIC Annual Conference.
