About Us

Note: Please be advised that due to COVID-19, many DEQ staff are working remotely, at reduced hours, or both. As a result there may be longer than usual delays, especially for records only available in hardcopy. We appreciate your patience in advance and will keep you apprised of the status of your request.

Announcing our Public Record Request Center

DEQ is excited to announce that we have upgraded our public records system.

Some of the changes include:

  • The elimination of manual personal data re-entry (the system will remember each user’s name and contact information)
  • Centralized communications and documents related to requests
  • An online payment system

DEQ is modernizing the public records system to better serve you, and responding to records requests is a top priority for our agency.
