Gov. Pete Wilson has appointed Lancaster Public Works Director Jeff Long to a three-year term on the state regional water board that serves the Antelope Valley and reappointed Lancaster rancher Eugene Nebeker, the board's current chairman, to a new four-year term.
Long, 45, has been public works director since 1986. He fills the vacant municipal government slot on the nine-member Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board. Nebeker, 56, of Los Angeles, has been a board member since 1989 and will continue filling the industry slot on the board.
Wilson also reappointed environmental science professor Richard A. Dodge, 60, of Ridgecrest and picked consulting engineer Eric Sandel, 51, of Truckee. The four must still be confirmed by the state Senate.
