Public forum to be held by DEQ in Oklahoma

Members of Oklahoma’s Environmental Quality Board want to hear from the public about any number of things related to the state’s environment.

They’re planning to hold a public forum on Feb. 21 following a regular business meeting at the DEQ’s headquarters in downtown Oklahoma City.

The exact start time of the public forum isn’t known because there is no way to estimate the length of the business meeting which will begin at 9:30 a.m.

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 9:30 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. To learn more about the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, visit
