The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s core mission is to implement federal and state regulations to protect human health and the environment, while allowing the environmentally sound operation of industrial, agricultural, commercial, and governmental activities vital to a prosperous economy.
The Office of Water Quality’s mission is to monitor, protect, and improve Indiana’s water quality to ensure its continued use as a drinking water source, habitat for wildlife, recreational resource, and economic asset.
The office achieves this by developing rules, guidance, policies, and procedures; assessing surface and ground water quality; regulating and monitoring drinking water supplies and wastewater treatment facilities; and protecting watersheds and wetlands. The office also provides outreach and assistance to the regulated community and the public, while supporting environmentally responsible economic development.
