The permitting and authorization process is the primary way government balances environmental protection with social and economic considerations. By issuing permits and authorizations, NDEQ ensures facilities are legally constructed and operated and that discharges to the air, water and soil are within healthful standards established by law. Beyond this, the process enables citizens to stay informed and involved as decisions are made about proposed activities affecting the environmental quality of their community.
