People with knowledge of water issues have one more week to submit a letter of interest to the Methow Watershed Council, which is looking for a new member for the eight-person group.

The individual should have some involvement with water issues, such as experience as an irrigator, an environmentalist or a water manager. Council members must live within the Methow watershed (from Pateros to the headwaters of the Methow River).

The entire council meets once a month on the third Thursday of the month at 5 p.m. in Twisp. Council members also serve on a committee that could require additional responsibilities. Council members serve as volunteers.

The watershed council educates the public about water issues and advises water managers, including the towns, county and tribes.

Candidates should send a letter of interest describing their background and interest in serving to Greg Knott at by March 15. They can also drop it off at the Riverbank Building, 206 Glover St. in Twisp.
