Arkansas Wastewater Licensing Committee
The Arkansas Wastewater Licensing Committee (AWLC) is an advisory committee to the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission (APC&EC) and ADEQ.
Regulation 3 established the Arkansas Wastewater Licensing Committee to advise and assist ADEQ and the APC&EC in the administration of the licensing program.
The committee has the power and duty to:
- Establish its administrative policies and guidelines
- Conduct inquires and establish findings to advise the commission and ADEQ on irregularities in the management of the licensing program
- Conduct inquiries and establish facts to advise the commission and ADEQ on the actions of licensees
- Recommend administrative sanctions as necessary to promote the professional integrity of wastewater licensees
Seven committee members are appointed by the commission and represent wastewater treatment facilities, private industry, and sanitary engineering or water-related discipline faculty of an accredited college, university, or professional school in the state. The eighth member includes an executive secretary, who is either the ADEQ director or a qualified ADEQ staff member appointed by the director. ADEQ's Wastewater Licensing Program coordinator also attends committee meetings.
