The DEQ Office of Outreach & Environmental Assistance was created to provide environmental information and assistance to the businesses, municipalities and citizens of Wyoming in a non-threatening, non-regulatory manner. In addition to a wide range of informational resources, the office provides copies of rules and regulations, public presentations and displays, personal visits to businesses, as well as answers to telephone inquiries. The Pollution Prevention Program provides information on new technologies, regulatory assistance, and improved procedures and materials substitutions that can eliminate sources of pollution, save money and reduce a business's regulatory burden. Assistance is provided confidentially.
