Environmental Application Tracker

The DEQ Environmental Application Tracker allows applicants and the public to check the status of pending environmental applications.  

The map provides information on 80 different environmental applications, including:

  • Air Quality Small permits,
  • Air Quality Synthetic Minor,
  • Air Quality Title V major permits,
  • NPDES Wastewater,
  • State Stormwater,
  • Collection Systems,
  • Gravity Sewer Extensions; and
  • Capacity Use permits.

Interested parties can search by location, application type, permit type, facility name, permit number, and other criteria. It displays information and dates regarding milestones in the review process, and tracks the progress from the date of receipt of the application until a final decision is made.
