Environmental Quality Board Meeting Scheduled for Oklahoma City

For Immediate Release: February 12, 2018

Contact: Erin Hatfield, (405) 702-7119

Members of the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) of the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) encourage residents of central Oklahoma to attend a public forum scheduled for Friday, February 16, 2018. The public forum will be held following the regular business meeting of the Board. There is no way to estimate how long the business meeting will last, so there is no exact time for the start of the public forum. Both the meeting and public forum will be held in the Multi-Purpose Room at DEQ’s main office at 707 N. Robinson in Oklahoma City. The regular business meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. The Environmental Quality Board is the rulemaking authority for DEQ.

The Board welcomes input from those concerned about Oklahoma’s environment and the regulations governing their protection. The Board’s role at the forum is to listen to citizens. While the Board can’t talk about pending permits or enforcement actions, we do want to know about your issues of concern.

The meeting and public forum are open to everyone. To learn more about the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, visit https://www.deq.ok.gov. For more information regarding this event, contact Quiana Fields at (405) 702-7100.
