2012 Tier 2 Filing Assistance
DEQ is offering personal assistance for completing your Tier 2 filing. Tom Bergman can help you operate the Tier 2 Submit software, import last year’s report, determine accurate Lat/Long coordinates, and submit the file via the DEQ Internet system. You will need to bring a listing of your facility locations, contact names with phone numbers, and reportable chemicals; along with any Site Plans or other documents you wish to submit. For many of you, processing your Tier 2 submission in person will take less than 30 minutes.
Tier2 Site Plans
Tier 2 Submit 2012 Software incorporates "site plans" to your filing. Site plan filing is voluntary, not required, in Oklahoma. If you wish to include a site plan with your filing, it must be attached using the Tier2 Submit 2012 software
DEQ understands many of you will have questions regarding the new filing system and report information changes. Contact us! We want to help!
