About the Board

The City of Durham and Durham County jointly established the Environmental Affairs Board (EAB) in 1991, in recognition of the importance of local cooperation on environmental issues. The EAB is an advisory board of appointed residents to provide the City and County with expert and comprehensive advice on various environmental matters. It also facilitates communication between the public and local government leaders. The EAB considers topics such as: 

  • Watershed protection
  • Air quality
  • Energy conservation
  • Waste reduction
  • Environmental education
  • Global climate change
  • Natural resource protection


Members serve without compensation and must live within the jurisdiction that appoints them. Applicants must be current on City and County taxes. Twelve members are appointed based on their expertise in certain environmental areas and three members are “at-large.” The areas represented by EAB members and the appointing body are:

  • Biological sciences (City)
  • Energy (City)
  • Law (City)
  • Solid and hazardous waste (City)
  • Water resources (City)
