Summary

The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality regulates Oklahoma's Water Quality Standards. The law states the requirements and standards for point source discharges. It also establishes groundwater protection standards. Discharge permit criteria allow the DEQ to include measures for the protection of groundwater quality, and requires the responsible party to report all spills of reportable quantities and respond accordingly to protect waters of the state, which includes groundwater.
