The State Health Department’s Division of Environmental Health is preparing to become its own separate agency.
The 2017 Legislature created the framework for a Department of Environmental Quality.
But before the Agency can be established, there's work to do.
"We need to give a submittal to the (federal) EPA," said Division director Dave Glatt. "We have to show EPA the organization is not going to change."
After that, Glatt said the Department will start getting name changes in uts administrative rules.
