Internal Management Directives​

Managers at DEQ occasionally issue internal management directives to staff, which describe expectations for how employees should implement various components of environmental programs. These directives are not binding on third parties, and staff may deviate from an IMD, either in accordance with the circumstances specified in an IMD, or as appropriate with approval from a program manager. As part of the agency's ongoing commitment to public understanding of our processes, existing directives are listed on this page with new ones posted here as they are issued.
