MPCA Advisory Committee

The MPCA Advisory Committee will meet on a regular basis to guide the direction and enforcement of the state’s environmental protection laws.

MPCA Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public.The committee will provide recommendations and advise the MPCA commissioner in four main areas:

  • Reviewing scoping and adequacy of environmental review documents including environmental assessment worksheets and environmental impact statements
  • Issuance, reissuance, modification, or revocation of certain permits
  • Adoption or revision of agency rules
  • Requests for a variance from an agency rule

In February 2016, Governor Mark Dayton named the eight members appointed to the committee.
