The Office of Citizens Assistance

The Office of Citizens Assistance provides citizens and public interest groups the access to DEQ they need to address their concerns about public health and protection of the environment.

Citizens and public interest groups are more involved in the development of regulations and the issuance of permits than ever before. The Office of Citizens Assistance provides an important two-way link between citizens and the DEQ. Through Citizens Assistance the DEQ can understand what the public's concerns for the environment and public health are, and the public can learn how the DEQ protects them and their communities.


The Office of Citizens Assistance provides customers with:
