Industry Advisory Council

The Industry Advisory Council (Council) was formed in 1992 to provide a forum for members of industry and representatives from the Sanitation Districts to update industry on legislation and regulation, promote industrial best management practices, and to encourage industry to prepare for the future green economy through environmental sustainability.  The Council represents major industry groups from within the service area of the Sanitation Districts and has fostered mutual understanding and cooperation between the Sanitation Districts and industry.  The Council has proven to be an innovative forum for government and industry to communicate and cooperate on environmental regulation for the benefit of the environment.

Meetings of the Council are held three times a year in March, June, and November and are open to members of industry who possess an industrial wastewater discharge permit from the Sanitation Districts, industry guests, and local regulators.  Council meetings cover a wide variety of topics including Council business, current issue briefings, critical examination and review of regulatory/policy issues, and program administration or stake holder relations.  Special guest speakers are invited to provide information on topics important to industry, the environment, or the Sanitation Districts.  In June of each year, tours are conducted to familiarize Council members with Sanitation Districts' facilities and Council member industries.
