Ohio EPA information on communicating with the agency and the submission of files
Ohio EPA is currently operating during the COVID-19 crisis with many staff members working remotely. Ohio EPA’s district offices and Central Office are temporarily closed, with increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. Consequently, Ohio EPA has stated that it will have significant delays in receiving and processing any hard copy mail or USPS/FedEx/UPS deliveries to its offices. Ohio EPA is encouraging the submittal of all fee reports, payments, registrations, licenses, etc. electronically, if possible, using any of its online services (such as ebiz). If you know with which Ohio EPA employee you would like to communicate, Ohio EPA advises to contact them via email at email@example.com. Ohio EPA’s main phone line (614-644-3020) is also staffed, as well as the main line for each division or office.
Regarding the submission of files, Ohio EPA advises that plans and attachments under 25 megabytes can be emailed directly to staff. For large documents over 25 megabytes, entities can submit the file via a secure file upload web site (instructions available here). Each office also has its own upload site for large files at the following links:
