Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality Updated:05/2023

ADEQ protects the air, water and land from the threat of pollution. We strive for environmental quality through programs of regulation, education and assistance.

ADEQ’s regulatory programs set pollution limits, determine compliance, and enforce environmental laws and regulations. Our regulatory divisions include Air, Water, Solid Waste, Hazardous Waste, Regulated Storage Tanks and Mining. Additionally, ADEQ oversees training and standards for various licensed professionals.

ADEQ offers citizens the tools and resources to protect natural resources. We show businesses and communities alternatives to waste disposal and how to prevent pollution, and involve students in environmental projects. We raise understanding of environmental requirements and responsibilities by conducting workshops for teachers and businesses, and helping citizens understand permitting issues.

ADEQ’s authority is bound and limited by federal and state laws and regulations. We maintain partnerships with other agencies and stakeholders, sharing knowledge and expertise to solve problems. We depend on, and respond to, citizens’ concerns, since you are often the first to witness environmental problems.
