Where Can I Send Comments?

You may submit comments by mail, email or by fax to DEQ or Agent office listed below.

Special Instructions

Only submit water quality-related comments regarding the application materials. DEQ cannot act on land use-related comments because they are outside the agency's jurisdiction.

DEQ will review all comments but only provide a written response to those comments on new applications, and renewal applications for facilities that exceeded the benchmarks in the previous permit and submitted an updated SWPCP identifying treatment best management practices that is stamped by Professional Engineer or Certified Engineering Geologist.

Please call the DEQ or the Agent before traveling to that office to make sure the documents are available.
