Overview

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) is a regulatory agency charged with protecting our State’s air, land, and water. To do this, the WVDEP issues permits to ensure that the environmental health, integrity, and beauty of West Virginia is maintained.

The WVDEP issues permits for all types of facilities and activities so that releases into the air, water, and soil are within acceptable standards. Compliance with these permits ensures the applicant is adhering to all state and federal environmental laws and minimizing their impact on the environment.

Permits for the Division or Air Quality, Division of Mining and Reclamation, and the Division of Water and Waste Management are searchable through the Electronic Submission System (ESS) public query.
