DNR Air Quality offices moving December 19

WINDSOR HEIGHTS—After 21 years in Windsor Heights, the DNR’s Air Quality Bureau is returning to the Wallace Building near the state capitol.

Find the bureau on the second floor of 502 E Ninth St, Des Moines IA 50319. Visitors will need to check in first on the fourth floor at the reception desk. 

The bureau works to protect public health and grow Iowa’s economy by working with regulated facilities to ensure they meet state and federal clean air requirements.

Staff phone numbers and emails will remain the same after the move but staff availability will be limited during the move Dec. 19 and 20.

Starting Dec. 21, call the DNR general reception number of 515-725-8200 instead of the disconnected Air Quality mainline. The Air Quality fax number, 515-725-9501, and the toll-free permitting hotline, 877-AIR-IOWA, are still available.

DNR’s Des Moines area field office, Field Office 5, will remain at 7900 Hickman Rd.  Some Environmental Protection Commission meetings and larger stakeholder meetings will meet at the Hickman location.
