The purpose of this study is to delineate the role of a Utah State comprehensive health planning agency in environmental health planning. The scope and nature of environmental health planning was researched thus defining the data base. Secondary information sources and informal interviews were used as sources for data about the existing situations in Utah which affect the organization of environmental health planning. The analysis of existing situational was presented in five sections: Goals for Environmental Health Planning; Intergovernmental Planning Coordination in Utah; Multicounty Health Districts in Utah; Utah State Agencies Having Responsibilities Related to Environmental Health; and Implications of Public Law 93-641 (the National Health Planning and Resources Development Act of 1974) and Utah Senate Bill No. 45 (the Health Resources Development Act of 1976). Analysis of information examined the organization and purpose of agencies and institutions as specified by secondary information sources and interviews. Recommendations for the role of an Utah State comprehensive health planning agency in environmental health were based on these analyses.
