About WRC SPC Water Resource Center
Who We Are

In 2013 SPC formed the Water Resource Center (WRC) to address various water issues within the region. WRC’s Mission is to promote regional collaboration on water topics; be a leader in facilitating coordination and education; and provide technical assistance to its member governments. Specifically, the WRC has four major tasks to undertake for its members:

  1. Provide needed technical assistance
  2. Provide educational resources
  3. Serve as a regional information clearinghouse
  4. Provide a forum for regional coordination of water issues

SPC’s member governments identified various water-related issues within the region; however stormwater management was identified as the top regional priority and will serve as the initial primary focus of the newly-created WRC. The WRC’s technical committee is comprised of the planning directors from the SPC member governments. Additional topic-specific subcommittees may be created that will be comprised of the planning directors and additional stakeholders.
