The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking qualified individuals to serve on one of four of regulatory boards that are primarily responsible for rulemaking for the agency. The nine-member boards made up of individuals with diverse experience and backgrounds.

As a result of legislation passed during the 2012 general session of the Utah Legislature, changes were made to the makeup of the five boards that oversee DEQ’s six divisions - air quality, radiation control, drinking water, water quality, and solid and hazardous waste. Board positions for each division are to be filled with representatives from government, industry, health professionals and community organizations, according to the news release.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s office reviews applicants and sends nominees’ names to the Senate, which votes to confirm the appointments.
