Peace River Basin Management Advisory Committee


The Peace River Basin Resource Management Plan suggested that a determination be made regarding the efficacy of a formal Peace River Coordinating Committee to facilitate intergovernmental and stakeholder interactions regarding action items detailed in the plan. DEP's Secretary made that determination and created a Peace River Basin Management Advisory Committee. The committee will review the plan in detail, and then assist the implementing agencies in determining steps needed to accomplish the goal of reducing and reversing cumulative environmental impacts.

Former Deputy Secretary Mimi Drew chaired the committee with Mr. Bruce Wirth, Deputy Executive Director of the Southwest Florida Water Management District serving as the vice chairman. The committee will be meeting at least quarterly at a location within or near the Peace River Basin.

A list of the committee members can be found below. All meeting dates and locations will be posted as they are available.
