The new term for the Commissioner will begin July 1, 2019 and run for four (4) years, expiring on June 30, 2023.  The Nominating Committee will review applications and send the Governor the names of at least three (3) people deemed qualified according to Hawai‘i Revised Statutes. The appointment is subject to confirmation of the Senate.

CWRM has exclusive jurisdiction and final authority over matters relating to the implementation and administration of the State Water Code.
