Local Projects

DEQ's Western Region has put an emphasis on solving problems at the community level. Environmental problems rarely fit within the narrow scope of a single program. Often, the solution requires coordination with other agencies and community organizations. DEQ has managed to leverage the efforts of other community volunteers and other organizations. This has allowed DEQ a much greater impact than if DEQ had been acting alone. This often means DEQ must step outside its traditional regulatory role, and provide technical assistance and community outreach.
