If you're seeking an environmental permit, registration, or certification for your business, school, community, or activity, the ADEQ can help! Permits ensure that businesses and individuals understand and comply with all applicable federal and state environmental standards to protect our air, land, and water. The following resources are available to help you find information on activities requiring a permit, including the purpose, fees, applications, where to submit applications, applicable rules, and agency contacts, guidelines, and supporting information.
Are you unsure about which environmental permits you need?
ADEQ's Permit Wizard is a tool to guide you in identifying the various Arkansas environmental permits, licensing, and registration requirements that may apply to your business. You will be asked a series of questions, and your answers will be used to pinpoint your permitting requirements. While especially useful for new business start-ups, existing businesses can also use the Permit Wizard to check if they have the proper environmental permits in place.
Looking at the information in this directory can help you determine which permit applies to your activity. When you find a permit in a category and with a description that corresponds with your activity, click on the permit name to see specific permit information.
