Cross Connection Advisory Board

About the Board

Revised Oregon Administrative Rules adopted November 2, 2004, established an advisory board consisting of not more than nine members. The board serves as an advisor to the agency on policy matters related to cross connection control issues. Although the board does not have the final authority to make or enforce rules, its research, experience, and advice to decision makers will contribute to effective changes in the Cross Connection Program.

The advisory board meets quarterly for approximately two-hours each session. All meetings are open to the public and a portion of the agenda will be devoted to public comment.
