Teams of expert advisors help guide the work undertaken by each division of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality.

The purpose of each advisory board is to counsel with and advise division administrators concerning adoption of rules, regulations and standards, and the activities relevant to each division’s duties. Each board consists of Wyoming citizens appointed by the Governor for staggered two-year terms. Not more than three members of each board may be from the same political party.
