Records Request

Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA)

 

The Department of Environmental Quality places a high priority on assisting the public when requesting to view our public files. The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) requires that we respond to a request within ten working days of its receipt.

Request Records

| Air Quality | Department | Drinking Water | Environmental Response & Remediation |
| Radiation Control | Solid & Hazardous Waste | Water Quality |
Other |

 

GRAMA 63-2-204 requires that a person making a request for a record shall furnish the governmental entity with a written request containing a name, mailing address, daytime phone number, if available, and a description of the records with reasonable specificity.

Complete a GRAMA request form for either the Department or a specific Division. If you know the Division in which the records are located, you may contact that Division's GRAMA file clerk directly. Division GRAMA file clerks will locate the requested files, if they exist, and then contact the requestor.

In some rare cases, where there is deemed to be sensitive content, a GRAMA request may be denied by Department management. DEQ also has a growing number of public files available online:

Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA)

The Government Records Access and Management Act (GRAMA) is a comprehensive law dealing with management of government records and access to those records. it is an attempt to balance the public's constitutional right of access to information concerning the conduct of the public's business, the individual's constitutional right of privacy in relation to personal data gathered by government entities, and the public policy interest in allowing government to restrict access to certain records for the public good.
