Overview of the Science Committee

The Parties responsible for the Edwards Aquifer Habitat Conservation Plan (EAHCP) provided for the appointment of a Science Committee, comprised of an odd number of not fewer than 7 or more than 11 members, who have technical expertise in one or more of the following areas: (a) the Edwards Aquifer or its management; (b) the Comal Springs and River; (c) the San Marcos Springs and River; or (d) the Covered Species.

The Science Committee's role is to:

  1. Consult with, advise and make recommendations to the Program Manager, the Implementing Committee and the Stakeholder Committee on any Adaptive Management Process (AMP) Decision upon request;
  2. Provide independent and unbiased advice based on their best scientific judgment so that all AMP Decisions will be made consistent with the best scientific and commercial data available; and
  3. Participate in the meetings of the Science Review Panel and provide to the Panel such information as requested by that Panel or the Implementing Committee.

More information concerning the Science Committee can be found in the Operational Procedures of the Science Committee, adopted by the Committee, and the Funding and Management Agreement.
