The Division of Environmental Quality within the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) offers compliance assistance visits (CAVs) to those regulated by the department. CAVs assist with understanding regulatory requirements and are particularly beneficial when a facility is faced with a change in permit or regulatory requirement. In addition, CAVs help with achieving and maintaining compliance and provide a continuing resource for technical assistance.
During a CAV, a DNR representative travels to the facility to meet with the person requesting the visit. The department representative looks at the requested aspects of the facility, go over any requirements, answer questions, offer suggestions, and discuss any issues that need to be addressed. Upon completion of such a visit, recommendations are made regarding operations or regulatory compliance.
