For Citizens

Citizen Assistance

The Office of External Affairs (OEA) is your connection to information and tools that can help protect your community’s environment.  We are here to help residents, leaders, and teachers with data and publications on our state’s most precious resources.

Citizen Participation

DEQ encourages innovation. Additionally, our processes are open and transparent.  We believe everyone should have a seat at the table.

The Environmental Quality Board and DEQ’s advisory councils provide a forum for receiving comments and disseminating information to the public and the regulated community.

For more information on the board and advisory councils, visit Boards and Councils.
