Participate on a Groundwater Committee
Portage County Planning and Zoning has turned to the community to form a Groundwater Advisory Committee. The goal of the Portage County Groundwater Citizens Advisory Committee (PCGCAC) is to develop a strategy and policy for addressing public concerns on groundwater protection and management for recommendation to the Portage County Board. In addition, this Advisory Committee has formed three subcommittees.
Membership on the County Advisory Committee consists of one appointed person from each of the 28 municipalities (city/town/village) in Portage County. Since some municipalities declined participation or lack a representative, current membership consists of 25 members. If you would like to fill a vacancy or would like to be considered for your community's position in the future, contact your Town Board or Elizabeth Langer, PCGCAC Chair.

PCGCAC has three Subcommittees:
|Groundwater Management Plan and Implementation (GMPI)|
|Public Involvement and Education (PIE)|
Richard Berndt, Chair
|Continuous Assessment (CAS) |
Bryant Browne, Chair
Membership on all three Subcommittees is open to any interested volunteer who is willing to actively participate in accomplishing the Subcommittee's mission and activities. Persons interested in joining a Subcommittee need to ask the subcommittee chairperson for permission to join. (See above links to Chairs.)
Current membership consists of about 15 members on the GMPI and PIE Subcommittees and 10 members on the CAS Subcommittee.
