Engage with EGLE

Welcome to the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy’s Public Participation and Community Engagement page! 

Community involvement and public participation are an essential part of EGLE’s mission, vision, and values. We welcome all Michiganders to engage with EGLE programs, staff, and processes – and value your contributions to protecting Michigan’s public health, air, water, land, and energy resources. 

This page is designed for Michiganders to: 

  1. Learn about public participation opportunities around critical environmental topics in Michigan.  
  2. Understand different types of regulatory actions and how to get involved. 
  3. Engage with EGLE through partnerships and collaboration.
