Public Interest Advisory Group

About PIAG

Public consultation is critical to the assessment of plan criteria. It is recognized that progress in addressing water levels issues is dependent in large part on public understanding of the causes of the water level problems, and the further understanding that most proposed solutions could have consequences for others. To achieve this understanding, it is recommended that the major interests and the relevant public be involved directly in the studies, by the formation of an Interest Advisory Group.This would allow individuals with diverse interests to find common ground on many aspects of the issues. The continuous involvement of all interests throughout the criteria review process is critical to the success of the study.
