Continue to navigate through the branches of the Library TREE by clicking on the headings until your decisions bring you to the term and condition of interest. To open the term and condition of interest in Word 2007, click on the heading represented with the paper. Use the plus sign folder symbol to expand the TREE branch and theminus sign folder symbol to collapse the TREE branch.

All of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) rule-based terms are dated (in parenthesis under each rule reference) with the date of their last revision. Many of the CFR terms also show the date they were first drafted or the date they were last modified for an amendment; this is usually documented for the entire set at the beginning of each file. The terms in the Library also include (in brackets under each term) the rule-source paragraph or section of the rule on which each term is based. Always check the current rule for recent amendments, which might contain changed or new requirements. Please notify the contact person below when you find terms that need to be updated for any amendments. The most current OAC and CFR rules can be found at:

Any questions concerning these documents may be directed to Mike Maleski at (614) 644-3613. For specific questions regarding Oil and Gas General Permits, please contact Misty Parsons at (614) 644-3614.

 As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding. If you wish to send hard copies of documents to any of Ohio EPA’s district offices, the best method to ensure we receive these documents is to send them via U.S. Mail. Since all offices are closed, deliveries outside of U.S. Mail (FedEx, UPS) will likely be returned because the offices are closed and deliveries cannot be made.
