The volunteer Board of Directors reflects every aspect of water use and management in Idaho. This group of representatives from Idaho industries; agriculture; water suppliers; energy providers, state, federal and local agencies; and environmental interests have united to ensure Idaho residents receive water education that is accurate, timely, and factual. Informed citizens and our youth will be able to make the necessary decisions to ensure Idahoans today and into the future have clean, ample water supplies. Water that can be used in the home, for industry and agriculture, energy production to light our homes and businesses, and water for recreation and leisure.
