About the Middle James Roundtable

The Middle James Roundtable is a collaborative effort among various stakeholders in the Middle James watershed to improve water quality and the overall health of our communities. Roundtable stakeholders include elected officials, local government staff, the agricultural community, planning district commissions, business and industry, water and sewer utilities, commercial fishermen, soil and water conservation districts, developers, interested citizens, environmental groups, tourism and recreational groups, state and federal agency staff and public service authorities. Roundtable activities are dictated by the participants and can involve activities such as hosting forums to discuss local watershed issues and land use, educating citizens about water quality, grant writing, coordinating workshops, social marketing campaigns, collecting and analyzing water quality data and planning and implementation of watershed goals.

The Middle James Roundtable consists of a steering committee, which meets quarterly.  An executive committee, elected from current steering committee members by steering committee members, meets monthly.  The Roundtable also holds a yearly meeting that focuses on local water quality issues.
