Re: State Environmental Enforcement during COVID-19
During the current public health crisis, DEQ continues to protect air quality, water quality and human health under all state environmental rules and regulations.
Under our authority, DEQ will work with regulated entities to ensure they remain in compliance and in instances of non-compliance, pursue enforcement actions on a case-by-case basis.
