Board Member Biography
Michael Kucinski
Michael Kucinski
Mr. Michael Kucinski has been Water Quality/Onsite Manager for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) since 2003.  Previously at DEQ, he was a Natural Resource Specialist 4 from 1999-2003 and a Natural Resource Specialist 3 from 1994-99.
He earned a Bachelor's of Environmental Science from Oregon State University in 1994.
"The Environmental Health Registration Board and DEQ's Onsite Wastewater Management Program share a lot of common interests due to the way their statutes and rules interrelate," says Mr. Kucinski. 
"I believe that I can help address some of the common issues facing them both, such as registration requirements for new employees in the onsite program, inspections of existing onsite septic systems during real estate transactions, site evaluations and who can conduct them, and internship programs designed to expose more college students to the opportunities available in the environmental health field."
