An updated Permit Wizard is now available.This online tool can help you identify the basic Ohio EPA permits, licenses and registrations you may need. Answer a series of questions and get a customized summary and list of resources and contacts to help you with your permitting needs. Existing businesses can also use the wizard as a way to “self-check” their compliance. It is targeted at small to medium-sized businesses that need to know the permitting basics.
The public can now access documents online through Ohio EPA’s Ohio EPA’s eDocument search system. This initial launch contains all noncompliance documents issued since January 1, 2007. It is the first phase of electronic records posting to be undertaken over several years with the goal of having nearly all Ohio EPA public records available online. The search engine features instructions for use, frequently asked questions, and contact information for help or other questions.
