Reporting and Forms
An excess emission occurs when a regulated air pollutant is released into the environment at a rate that is above permitted levels for a facility. Our rule (OAC 252:100-9) requires excess emissions to be reported to protect public health and so that persistent problems can be identified and corrected. Once an excess emission has occurred, the owner or operator of a facility has until 4:30 PM the next business day to notify DEQ and provide a brief description of the event (if applicable).
Other Reporting options:
- Call toll-free: (877) 277-6236 (leave a message 24 hours/7 days a week)
- Email: email@example.com
The immediate notification must be followed by a certified written report (also handled online) within 30 calendar days describing the emission and its causes.
DEQ has developed training videos and a factsheet about our new online reporting system:
- Video: Associating a Company to Your User Account
- Video: Correcting Data for an Excess Emission 30 Day Report
- Video: Submission Statuses and Revising a Submission
- Online Excess Emission System Factsheet
For more information, use the email link above or call an excess emissions team member at (405) 702-4100.
If you want to file a complaint, please call our 24-hour Emergency Response and Environmental Complaints Hotline at 1-800-522-0206 or file a complaint online.
Self-Disclosures are designed to assist companies in identifying, reporting, and correcting non-compliance issues. If the self-disclosure meets the requirements of OAC 252:4-9-5 and all eight of the necessary criteria listed therein, the company could receive full or partial mitigation of penalties, and avoid receiving a Notice of Violation (NOV). The Voluntary Self-Disclosure form breaks down what information should be provided by the company, and should be fully filled out to ensure that the necessary facts are included to streamline the enforcement process.
Facilities that operate under a Title V (TV) permit are required to submit Annual Compliance Certifications (ACCs) and Semi-Annual Reports (SARs) to the DEQ. ACCs certify compliance with the permit conditions and cover a one year reporting period and SARs provide monitoring records and cover a six-month reporting period. Submittal of ACCs and SARs allows the permittee an opportunity to review the compliance status of a facility and report any issues to the DEQ.
