Public Records Act Request

The Office of the Secretary of the California Environmental Protection Agency does not perform inspection or cleanup activities but deals primarily with policy, budget, legislative and intergovernmental relations issues. The Secretary’s Office does not respond to Public Records Act requests on behalf of the Air Resources Board, the Department of Pesticide Regulation, the Department of Toxic Substances Control, the State Water Resources Control Board or the Office of Environmental Health Hazards Assessment. These CalEPA constituent entities may be contacted directly at the contacts listed below. In addition, local agencies such as county or city environmental health departments perform many environmental regulatory functions and may have the information on inspections and permits.
