DEQ Acronyms and Abbreviations
As is typical of most State agencies, and especially so with those that deal heavily with science, the Utah Department of Environmental Quality uses acronyms and abbreviations throughout its Web pages. Where possible, descriptions are included. But sometimes an explanation is missed.
These pages are an attempt to capture and explain as many commonly used DEQ acronyms and abbreviations as possible. To suggest an acronym or abbreviation for this page, include it in an e-mail to the DEQ Web Master. For a broader range of related acronyms, visit the EPA's Acronym page. And if you still can't find what you're looking for, try Acronym Finder.
FYI: An abbreviation is a shortened form of a word or phrase, while an acronym is a word formed from the initials of one or more words that is pronounceable like a normal word.
