Board of County Commissioners

Water Commission

How should Douglas County plan for its water future?

Eleven appointees, who are Douglas County residents or property owners within the County, are sought for the new Douglas County Water Commission – charged with creating the 2050 Comprehensive Douglas County Water Plan.  Applications will be accepted until all seats are filled.  

Now is the time for your voice to be heard on this question, and more, as the Board of Douglas County Commissioners invites you to submit your application for the new Douglas County Water Commission.

The goal of the Commission – through a culture of collaboration and mutually beneficial outcomes – is the integration of existing water provider plans into the 2050 Comprehensive Douglas County Water Plan that will:

  1. Identify strategic policies addressing water infrastructure and storage, supply acquisition, reclamation, conservation practices, the water-land use nexus, and agricultural efficiency.
  2. Broaden public awareness of and familiarity with issues of water supply and provision of services in Douglas County through sustainable community engagement and education initiatives.

Members of the Water Commission may be local elected officials, those who bring to the Commission their experience on water district or metro district boards; others with management oversight or with a professional background in water; and a representative who is the voice of rural Douglas County.

The Commission will commence in the third quarter of 2023 and meet six to eight times during the first 12 months with the focus of developing the Douglas County Water Plan.
