Our office responds to citizen and media inquiries regarding environmental issues and Agency actions. We prepare news releases; facilitate public hearings; and implement public involvement activities for citizen organizations, community leaders and other parties interested in environmental issues. We also oversee publications, produce videos and manage the Agency's website.
Members of the media are encouraged to contact Ohio EPA's public information officers with questions about environmental issues. Agency releases are available on our media center news page.
Ohio EPA recognizes that its mission and vision cannot be achieved without input from Ohio citizens. The Agency places a high priority on public involvement and encourages citizens to become involved in our decision-making processes.
Public involvement efforts are designed to enable Ohioans to be a part of environmental decisions that affect their lives. The Agency offers public hearings, informational meetings, and various publications to educate the public about environmental issues.
Each area of the state is served by a public involvement coordinator.
