Financial Assurance

 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.

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.

We encourage you to submit fee reports and payments, registrations, licenses, etc. electronically if possible using any of our online services. Please refer to the list of available electronic services and contacts available from DMWM at DMWM eservice. For help establishing new accounts through our eBusiness services, contact Leanne Greenlee or (614) 705-1012.

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

Financial assurance is intended to ensure that resources are available to pay for the cost of closure, post-closure care, and corrective measures if the owner or operator of a regulated facility is unable or unwilling to pay. The requirement for using standardized wording for the financial assurance instruments ensures that the State will be able to draw on the funds the instruments provide to pay for the cost of closing a facility properly and in a timely manner.  In addition, the cost to the owner/operator of maintaining financial assurance should provide an incentive for good operating practices, because of the potential loss of collateral to the owner/operator if the instrument is drawn on.

The owners/operators of the following facilities types of facilities would need financial assurance:
