VSP WORK GROUP
An important and essential function of VSP for each county that participates is the creation of a local, public county committee called the VSP Work Group. The work group is designated by a county under RCW 36.70A.715.
"The work group must include broad representation of key watershed stakeholders and, at a minimum, representatives of agricultural and environmental groups, and tribes that agree to participate."
The work group develops the local VSP work plan; identifies a lead entity for VSP outreach and implementation of the plan; and provides progress reports to the SCC. In conjunction with a designated VSP program coordinator, the work group meets regularly to discuss VSP and works to support the successful implementation of VSP for their county.
