Water Infrastructure Advisory Council

The Water Infrastructure Advisory Council (WIAC) initiates, develops and recommends to the Delaware General Assembly projects for the planning, construction, repair, renovation or expansion of drinking water and wastewater facilities.

The council, which is established in State Law at 29 Del. C. § 8011, provides guidance and policy advice to the Governor and to the Secretaries of DNREC, DHSS, and the Department of Finance. It helps develop funding options for capital and maintenance programs related to drainage, stormwater management and flood control throughout Delaware. And the Council provides assistance in the development and evaluation of criteria for watershed-based plans for surface water management.

2019 Council Meetings

Meetings are generally held on Wednesdays, from 9:00 a.m.  to noon. Meeting notices are posted on the Delaware Public Meeting Calendar. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are held in Room 220 of the Kent County Administrative Complex, at 555 Bay Road, in Dover.
