If you have ever wondered how you, your business or your community could reduce greenhouse gas emissions daily, there is a workshop designed for you.

Every year the Department for Environmental Protection honors employees who have gone above and beyond their job titles and duties to protect the environment, educate the public and ensure Kentucky is using and preserving its natural resources in a responsible manner.

The Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA) will host an Air Permitting and Compliance Workshop Feb. 8 in Frankfort at the DEP Training Center at 300 Sower Blvd. The workshop will educate attendees about air regulations and permitting so they understand and can comply with their environmental regulations. Speakers from DCA and the Division for Air Quality (DAQ) will be explaining how to obtain an air quality permit and follow the requirements of the permit.
In December, Kentucky’s Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that submitting eForms would soon require a user account through Kentucky OneStop Business Portal. For more information regarding this change, please see the Naturally Connected blog post from Dec. 14, 2017.
Major changes are coming Jan. 17 to Kentucky’s Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) eForms.
Access to the forms and how to submit them are changing to an account-based web application due to federal requirements under the Cross-Media Electronic Reporting Rule (CROMERR). Under the rule, DEP is required to provide identity-proofing of the individuals who electronically submit files and data to our agency.
What does this mean for you?
