Environmental Impact ReviewsWindmill Image

Many community improvement projects rely on private or public grants to assist with funding. One requirement of many of the grants is to have an environmental impact review included with the grant application to ascertain whether or not there are any environmental issues that may be a concern during the project. DEQ's Office of External Affairs coordinates those reviews for areas under DEQ jurisdiction.

When an environmental impact request is received, OEA consults with DEQ's air, land, water, and local services divisions to identify any environmental issues and regulatory requirements that should be considered during the project. Once our review is completed, OEA will send a response to the requestor summarizing our findings.

Submitting a Request

Requests may be mailed or emailed and should include the following information, at a minimum:

  • Project name
  • Brief project description (including year of construction for building renovation projects)
  • Project location (street address, section/township/range, GPS coordinates, etc.)

Maps, project drawings, or other visual reference material, though not required, will frequently assist us with our review.

Mailed requests may be submitted to:

Environmental Review Coordinator
Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality
P. O. Box 1677
Oklahoma City, OK 73101-1677

Please note that our review and response are based solely upon the information submitted. Material changes to that information may affect the results of our review. We try to have a response within two weeks. Responses will be provided via email when an email address is given; otherwise, responses will be sent via regular mail.
