About Us

CICWQ was created in 2001 to protect the construction industry from the potentially devastating impact of lost revenues and reduced wages that may be caused by the rapidly evolving set of water quality regulations.

The rights of property owners, builders, developers and contractors have been threatened by non-scientifically based water quality regulations which are being proposed and implemented at an alarming rate. These regulations, if left unchecked, will potentially cost the industry tens of millions of dollars each year.

With major funding frzom the Construction Industry Advancement Fund and the Fund for Construction Industry Advancement, CICWQ has successfully placed the construction and building industries in a position to help influence the development of plans and regulations that balance the goals of clean water with the need for a healthy economy. CICWQ has positioned itself to take a proactive and pivotal role in the policy making activities of the Regional Water Quality Control Boards, Municipalities, local water agencies, State Water Resources Control Board, Army Corps of Engineers, EPA, and California Coastal Commission.
