DEQ contributes to Wyoming’s quality of life through a combination of monitoring, permitting, inspection, enforcement and restoration/remediation activities, which protect, conserve and enhance the environment while supporting responsible stewardship of our state’s resources.
Below are a few highlights of work DEQ Divisions and Programs have accomplished in 2019.
The 2019 “State of the Environment” report highlights many DEQ accomplishments and achievements. From improving our air quality monitors, reclaiming historic abandoned mines, achieving high compliance rates by the regulated community, and improving our ground and surface water throughout the state, DEQ continues to be a leader in environmental stewardship and protection.
In addition to DEQ’s State of the Environment, the department releases Annual Reports and Strategic Plans which provide addition details on the Agency’s work and focus.
