The Office of the Clean Water Public Advocate was established in 2019 under Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2019-06. The overall intent of this Executive Order, and thereby the creation of the Office of the Clean Water Public Advocate is to ensure that the state is more responsive to risks to the environment and public health. Engagement of Michigan residents is imperative to improving communication, supporting community efforts and ensuring transparency and accountability.
Building bridges with communities will help improve communication, transparency, and accountability. Community residents throughout Michigan are encouraged to become Clean Water Community Ambassadors. As Ambassadors, you can help improve our programs by providing your community’s perspective to drinking water related efforts.Learn More
