SAFER Advisory Group
The SAFER Advisory Group provides the State Water Board with constructive advice and feedback on the Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fund Expenditure Plan and other related policies and analyses.
The Group is composed of 20 appointed members that represent public water systems, technical assistance providers, local agencies, nongovernmental organizations, the public and residents served by community water systems in disadvantaged communities, state small water systems, and domestic wells.
The Group meets up to four times a year at locations throughout California to provide many opportunities for public and community input. All meetings are widely publicized, open to the public, and offer translation services.
