CITIZENS WATER ADVOCACY GROUP
May 6, 2009

CWAG, Citizens Water Advocacy Group is one of my favorite non profits because of the technical and scientific back ground of many members and a diversity of other interested and active community members. We have so much expertise and it is all volunteer! Our secretary and calendar update folks are organized and efficient and keep all the members informed. Our president serves with expertise and a sense of humor that helps us over the rough spots occuring occasionally with politicans. CWAG has made a difference in our community by informing people of scientific studies and giving educational talks to multiple and varied groups. Again, this is all accomplished by volunteers.

have a powerful affect on our community by more education that would affect the sustainability of water in this desert community

Ways to make it better...

we had more cookies after the meetings.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

turn coat politicans and lack of money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

these volunteers give it their all and have been so effective in teaching our community about the problems mining ground water and the results this has on free flowing rivers and streams.
