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.

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.

U.S. EPA has established a national system for tracking hazardous waste shipments electronically. This system, known as e-Manifest, modernizes the nation’s cradle-to-grave hazardous waste tracking process while saving valuable time, resources and money for industry and states. Generators, transporters and receiving facilities have the option of using electronic manifests. Receiving facilities must submit manifests to U.S. EPA and pay a user fee for each manifest submitted. The final user fees for the e-Manifest system are effective from June 30, 2018, through Sept. 30, 2019. Generators and transporters are not required to use e-Manifest but are strongly encouraged to work with their receiving facilities to see how they will be impacted by the new system.

Visit Ohio EPA’s YouTube Channel to view a video recording about the e-Manifest system. This presentation covers an introduction of e-Manifest including a demonstration of system registration.

Please note this is a federal program. Ohio EPA has created a web page for information purposes only – it should not be relied upon for official requirements of the e-Manifest program. Any questions about the program should be directed to U.S. EPA via email sent to Go to U.S. EPA’s website at for more information.
