SALT LAKE CITY — A former deputy county attorney has been appointed division chief of the Environmental Division for the Utah Attorney General's Office. Craig Anderson, who has served with the Salt Lake County District Attorney's Office since 1993 will replace Denise Chancellor, who retired in June.
Anderson served as the chief of the Environment Public Health/Natural Resources Unit for Salt Lake County. As the county's chief environmental attorney, he focused on environmental compliance and enforcement, water resources and eminent domain.
Prior to joining the district attorney's office, he represented DEQ's Environmental Response and Remediation in 1990.
"I feel like I'm coming back to my roots," Anderson said. "This is an exciting opportunity to represent DEQ at a time when the state is faced with very important and complex environmental regulations."
Anderson chaired the Energy, Natural Resources and Environmental Law section of the Utah State Bar in 1996. He taught urban planning, policy and environmental law as an adjunct professor between 1993 and 2006 at the University of Utah. He received his law degree in 1977.
