The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is currently seeking feedback, suggestions, and input from citizens on the initial rollout of their draft Public Engagement Guidelines.

We have a chance to shape the way DEP interacts with the public, ensuring that our community input and well-being, both current and future, is at the forefront of their mission.

The deadline to comment is tomorrow, October 11, and our team has made it easy for you to review the guidelines and send in your feedback.

In our letter, we urge DEP to envision a relationship with the public where trust is paramount and where DEP is recognized as an essential partner in our communities’ growth and vitality.

By offering your insights on these guidelines, you play a crucial role in determining the level of public engagement, identifying the most effective communication channels, and assisting DEP in reaching underserved communities.

Please take a moment to share your thoughts and recommendations with the WVDEP.

Thank you for your time today and your commitment to effective public engagement.

More soon,

WV Rivers Coalition
