ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTAL OFFICIALS

Tracking and understanding all of the state and federal environmental regulations affecting local governments can be a daunting task. This web site was created to serve as a depository of web links to information about the regulatory programs that are applicable to a municipality's operation, their constituents or both. The site contains outreach materials that would be useful to stormwater operators, county drain commission staff, municipal planners and engineers, county health officials, community emergency response personnel, public works directors, road maintenance staff and building code officials. Call the DEQ's Environmental Assistance Center at 800-662-9278 if you need copies of publications or need help in complying with the regulations.
