Requests for MPCA regulatory flexibility due to COVID-19

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency expects regulated parties to remain in compliance with permit and regulatory requirements that directly protect human health and the environment. The MPCA recognizes the hardship some regulated parties are experiencing as a result of COVID-19, and is offering regulatory flexibility to assist with alternative approaches to maintain permit and regulatory compliance.

To preserve the public’s trust in the process, the MPCA is providing transparency on each request and the agency’s decision.
