Environmental Management Commission

The Environmental Management Commission is a 15-member Commission appointed by the Governor, the Senate Pro Tempore and the Speaker of the House. The Commission is responsible for adopting rules for the protection, preservation and enhancement of the state's air and water resources. Commission members are chosen to represent various interests, including the medical profession, agriculture, engineering, fish and wildlife, groundwater, air and water pollution control, municipal or county government and the public at large. The Commission oversees and adopts rules for several divisions of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, including the Divisions of Air Quality, Land Resources, Water Quality and Water Resources.

The Environmental Management Commission generally meets on the second Thursday of January, March, May, July, September and November.  In addition, the Commission Chairman may call special meetings as necessary. The EMC has seven committees (Air Quality, Groundwater, NPDES, Steering, Water Allocation and Water Quality) which generally meet on the day before full commission meetings; click here for agendas including scheduled locations, dates and times of meetings.
