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 firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov 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.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946

Deadlines

April 15, 2016 — Division of Air Pollution Control (DAPC) - Annual Emissions Reports.

April 29, 2016 — Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance (DEFA) - 2016 Water Pollution Control Loan Fund (WPCLF) Home Sewage Treatment System (HSTS) Funding. The local health districts/counties that have nominated HSTS projects need to have their signed WPCLF HSTS assistance agreements submitted to Ohio EPA no later than May 31, 2016 in order to receive the requested principal forgiveness funding for this program year.  Please note that the authorizing resolution and model contract need to be submitted and approved prior to Ohio EPA sending the WPCLF HSTS assistance agreement for signature.  As we have requested before, the deadline to submit the authorizing resolution and model contract is April 29, 2016.  The April deadline allows DEFA staff time to review and approve the model contracts, generate and mail the loan agreements and receive the signed loan agreements by the May 31 deadline. Contact Adam Pierce at (614) 644-3673, Adam.Pierce@epa.ohio.gov or Vicki Saunders at (614) 644-3653, Vicki.Saunders@epa.ohio.gov with questions.
