The Oklahoma Environmental Quality Board of the State Department of Environmental Quality plans a public forum next week in Oklahoma City.
It will be held Tuesday, Sept. 14 after the regular business meeting of the board.
The DEQ indicated there is no way to estimate now long the business meeting will last so there is no exact time for the start of the public forum.
Both the meeting and public forum will be held at the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, 707 N. Robinson, Oklahoma City, OK 73102. The regular business meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. The Environmental Quality Board is the rulemaking authority for DEQ.
The board welcomes input from those concerned about Oklahoma’s environment and the regulations governing their protection. The board’s role at the forum is to listen to citizens. While the board can’t talk about pending permits or enforcement actions, members do want to know about your issues of concern.
The meeting and public forum are open to everyone.
