DEQ seeks candidates to serve on Crop Residue Burning Advisory Committee

Friday, October 05, 2018

BOISE — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking candidates to fill three environmental representative positions on a committee that advises the agency on crop residue burning issues.

The Crop Residue Burning Advisory Committee is comprised of representatives of environmental, farming, health, and tribal organizations, along with DEQ, the Idaho State Department of Agriculture, and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Currently the committee includes 11 members appointed to four-year terms by DEQ’s director.

The committee was established by state law authorizing DEQ to manage the burning of crop residue on lands other than the five Indian reservations. The committee meets annually to review the Idaho crop residue burning program’s procedures, evaluate program performance during the most recently concluded burn season, and recommend program improvements.

To apply for a position on the committee, candidates should submit a letter or email indicating why they are interested in serving on the committee and presenting their qualifications for the environmental representative positions.

Applications will be accepted through December 1, 2018.
