The Utah Board of Oil, Gas and Mining is seeking nominations for 2005 Earth Day Awards. Earth Day Awards are presented each year to companies, organizations or individuals who go beyond what is required by regulation to protect the environment while developing Utah's natural resources.
Awards are presented in each of three areas: oil and gas, minerals mining, and coal mining. Specific award categories include environmental improvement to an active mine site, exploration site, or producing field; outstanding results following applications of innovative environmental technology; and outstanding final reclamation or site restoration.
The board began the Earth Day Award program in 1992 and since then has recognized more than 60 companies or individuals for their excellence. Nominations must be received no later than Jan. 31, 2005.
For more information, or to obtain a nomination form, contact Mary Potter at 801-538-5327 or Jim Springer at 801-538-5324.
