Public Comment

Our public input process lets you have your voice heard on behalf of the environment. You know about your neighborhood, community, and local conditions and how our regulatory processes and actions may affect them. Although we’re bound by state and federal laws, your comments can influence how solutions are achieved.

Public comment periods are an essential component of transparent and equitable public participation, allowing the EGLE to gather input from the community and affected parties before making final decisions on agency actions. A public comment period can range in length and in some comment periods, may be granted an extension.
