Members of the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) of the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) invite residents of Oklahoma to attend a virtual public forum scheduled for Friday, February 19, 2021.  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.

Due to social distancing precautions, both the meeting and public forum will be held at virtually on Zoom. The regular business meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. The Environmental Quality Board is the rulemaking authority for DEQ.
