  1. Task Force Topics (Lisa & Luke)
    1. Long Term Framework Joint Task Force

Tia  noted we are looking for guidance from members on where to focus our efforts/where priorities lie. We can take this info back to Peter at DWR.

Update: 1st Quarterly Urban Overview Meeting (5/20/19)

Lisa provided an overview of urban working groups as presented by                    the State Board and DWR on 5/20. Recommended that CalWEP members join the working groups and then inform the Program Committee on progress.

    1. Landscape, AMI, Water Loss, CII

Linda notes that many of the task force topics overlap with LTF and we need to tease those out.

William noted that the water loss meeting on 6/7 will offer additional information that could then inform water loss task force priorities.

Sue noted we need coordination with all water loss activities that are happening. There are a lot of disparate groups that are trying to get into this space. Make sure that these other groups are coordinated.

Nicholle noted as we go through the process of refining Task Forces we should refine the purpose of each of these task force.

Sofia noted we need to add an “outreach and education” task force, others agreed.

Rob agreed, how to gather info and how to present to customers.
