    In accordance with Governor Gretchen Whitmer's request to limit personal interactions, EGLE has closed its district offices and other facilities to visits from the public to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

    The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) continues to inspect facilities, respond to reports of pollution, and enforce laws and permit conditions that protect public health and the environment during the COVID-19 crisis.

    EGLE is constantly reviewing, tailoring, and amending processes in innovative ways that comply with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Stay Home, Stay Safe executive order, while ensuring that the vital work of protecting Michigan’s environment and public health is vigorously pursued.
