The Environmental Protection Commission (EPC) is a panel of nine citizens who provide policy oversight over Iowa's environmental protection efforts. EPC members are appointed by the Governor and confirmed by vote of the Senate for four year terms. Meetings are typically conducted on the third Tuesday of the month.
At times the commission may decide to meet in a location outside of Des Moines. If you are interested in the time and place of the meeting for the current month, the agenda will be published at this site prior to the meeting.

Sign up for Environmental Regulatory Updates
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources recognizes the need to provide the public with a way to learn about new programs and requirements related to Environmental Services programs. The Client Contact Group is an open forum to discuss new rules or program developments on the state and federal level. These meetings are a good source of information for anyone who works with or has an interest in activities related to environmental management.
The Client Contact Group meetings are held at the Wallace State Office Building in Des Moines. Meetings will be on the Thursday prior to each month's Environmental Protection Commission Meeting. All meetings are open to the public. If you are unable to attend the meeting in Des Moines, please feel free to join via a conference call.
