Emergency Response

During the normal workday - Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. - call the regional office closest to the environmental emergency.
Do not leave a message.  Make sure that you speak to an actual person so that you can share information that may be necessary to a fast response.

Outside of normal business hours, call the emergency hot line:

1-800-858-0368

and an appropriate regional staff member will be alerted.

Permits

Several permits for activities regulated by the Division of Water Quality are issued through the regional offices.

Sewer Extensions

Permits for non-pressurized sewer system extensions may be issued through the regional offices.  Applications for pressurized sewer system extensions must be sent to the DWQ Infrastructure Finance Section.

State Stormwater Permitting

Applications for state stormwater permits, such as those regulating development in the 20 coastal counties and those required for development near High Quality Waters and Outstanding Resource Waters across the state are reviewed and may be issued through the regional offices.

Well Construction

Permits for the installation of several types of wells - industrial high volume water supply (>100,000 gallons per day), monitoring, recovery - and irrigation well construction variances may be issued through the regional offices.

Wetland and Stream Impacts

Activities that require a US Army Corps of Engineers 404 permit may also require a 401 Certification from DWQ.  If the project disturbs less than an acre, the 401 Certification may be issued by the regional office.

In addition to these permitting activities, the regional office staff may issue modifications for other permits including management plans for animal operations, biosolids application sites and non-discharge land application systems.
