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

Helping communities and businesses access compliance, technical and financial assistance for their environmental needs.

The draft Drinking Water Assistance Fund (DWAF) Program Management Plan (PMP) for program year (PY) 2019 is available for review until June 19. Ohio's DWAF program is very robust, and has, in recent years, funded all eligible projects. Ohio EPA plans to maintain that level of fund availability. Two public meetings are scheduled to answer questions and receive comments. Written comments are also accepted. Ohio EPA will review and evaluate all applicable comments and, if appropriate, make adjustments to the PMP.
