Ohio EPA’s mission is to protect the environment. However, we also recognize the challenges we face as a state in attracting and retaining businesses to maintain a strong economy for Ohio. To help meet both of these goals we strive for timely permit application reviews that meet business timeframes whenever possible, while continuing our main mission of protecting the environment.
Ohio EPA is working to continuously improve the accessibility, flexibility, responsiveness and problem solving involved in our daily activities. As a result, we’ve made several changes to improve the efficiency of our permitting process and are currently reviewing our business practices for other areas of improvement.
Ohio EPA has developed this Web page to help organize and identify information that can help businesses navigate through the environmental permitting process. If after reviewing this information you still need help, please feel free to contact us by email or phone at 1-800-329-7518.
