The Resource rss

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

With so many state departments and agencies, it can be difficult to determine exactly who handles a particular issue. Ohio EPA often receives comments or questions about environmental issues that we can’t address because the laws give that authority to other departments. For example, people often call Ohio EPA about radon or lead paint in their home even though the Ohio Department of Health is the designated agency for regulating those issues.
