DEQ Rescinded Policies & Procedures

  • One of the 77 recommendations of the Environmental Advisory Rules Committee requires the DEQ to review all of their policy and procedures. This ongoing review is identifying policies, guidance documents, operational memorandums, etc., that need to be rescinded because they are either obsolete or addressed by another policy and procedure. Below are the policies that have been rescinded as a result of the department's regulatory reinvention efforts.
