ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION - INFORMATION FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENTS

Tracking and understanding all of the state and federal environmental regulations affecting local governments can be a daunting task. This web page was created to serve as a repository of links to information about the regulatory programs that apply to local government operations. The outreach materials featured on this page are 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.  Contact EGLE's Environmental Assistance Center at EGLE-Assist@Michigan.gov or 800-662-9278 for assistance, and call the Pollution Emergency Alert System (PEAS) hotline at 800-292-4706 for environmental emergencies that require immediate attention.
