SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Environmental Quality is seeking qualified individuals to serve on one of four of regulatory boards responsible for rule-making for the agency.

The boards comprise nine members each, consisting of individuals with diverse experience and backgrounds.

As a result of legislation passed during the 2012 Utah Legislature, changes were made to the makeup of the five boards that oversee the department's six divisions — air quality, radiation control, drinking water, water quality, and solid and hazardous waste.

Each board has nine open positions to be filled with representatives from government, industry, health professionals and community organizations. Gov. Gary Herbert makes the appointments, which must be approved by the state Senate.

Applications must be submitted online at
