Welcome to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management's Permit Wizard. Using a series of question-and-answer pages, the Wizard provides customized information to help you obtain the environmental permits necessary to start and operate your Indiana-based business. With a small investment of time, the Permit Wizard will help you to:
The Permit Wizard is easy to use. Simply answer the questions that appear on your screen, starting by selecting any of the three "media area" from the list below.
Many facilities require permits from two or more media categories. Click on the first media area to begin, and continue forward until you answer all the questions.
After a series of questions, a "shopping list" of permits you may need will be prepared as you answer the questions. Continue until you have visited all three areas. Your customized information will be contained in a results page that can be saved, printed or bookmarked for future reference.
Expect to spend anywhere from 5-15 minutes per media area.
