Changes at DEEP Make it Easier to Do Business in CT

Trumbull Economic Development

As the state continues to introduce solutions that make it easier to start, manage or grow your business in Connecticut, there are two programs at the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) you should be aware of. 

DEEP has launched the Client Concierge Service, a central point of contact that guides applicants through the environmental permitting and review process. The service is available to all businesses, but is particularly helpful for organizations managing complex, multiple-permit projects.  

DEEP also announced this week the adoption of significant changes to two sets of regulations that will speed up pollution cleanup, while providing property owners with additional flexibility and significant cost savings. 

If you are planning any construction projects, I encourage you to read more about the changes to the Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs) and the Environmental Use Restriction Regulations (EURs).  

While our attention remains focused on the pandemic and managing the associated economic challenges, we continue the important job of making it easier for Connecticut companies to do business here in the state.  

Sincerely, 

David Lehman, Commissioner
