To Whom It May Concern:

A log of public records requests submitted to the Department of Environmental Quality that lists the date of request, the requester's name, the requester's organizational affiliation, a description of the request and the date the request was filled. Ideally I would like this information for the period from 2004 to the present.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, and is made in the process of academic research and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

MuckRock News,

Thank you for your request.

We only keep 5 years’ worth of information regarding public information requests and response time. So we currently only have 2010-2015 information to share with you.

I have compiled the information and burned it to a CD. It does cost $4.28 for us to send you this information. There will be an invoice in the same envelope. Let us know if you need any other information. Have a great week!
