As one of DEQ’s highest priorities, the Environmental Complaints Program is a customer oriented process designed to address citizens’ environmental complaints. The program’s two main goals are to:
- Provide rapid response to each environmental complaint
- Bring about regulatory compliance through a consistent and structured process.
Oklahoma DEQ’s Environmental Complaints Program is unlike any other state’s complaint program in that specific timelines for communication with the complainant have been established within DEQ’s regulations. The program has a uniform investigation process, a central repository for all complaint records, and direct continuous involvement with each citizen who lodges a complaint.
