The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has announced that beginning in January 2022, its public water system notifications for monitoring and reporting violations are going paperless. No registration is required. Users may access the online site 24/7 at their convenience. This reporting functionality will join other paperless reporting for regulated entities through Arizona’s myDEQ portal.
Arizona also now allows for paperless open burn permit applications, sanitary sewer overflow and bypass reporting, and Underground Storage Tank (UST) reporting via myDEQ, including submission of UST information on new tanks, temporary closures, modifications, ownership changes, suspected releases, and more.
In total, Arizona DEQ lists 29 online services available through its myDEQ portal, which helps its regulated community apply for permits and submit compliance reporting online.
Arizona adds new services each year to myDEQ. New services are based in part on “Voice of the Customer” meetings held with myDEQ users on potential future portal enhancements. The state also holds user acceptance testing (UAT) for scheduled releases on the portal, as well as trainings once new services are released.
The site also allows those signing up to register for an account instantly without having to submit a notarized document with its online identity proofing.
