Thank you for your interest in Montana DEQ records. The State of Montana allows agencies to recover costs for responding to requests for records and information. In accordance with 2-6-1006(3), Montana Code Annotated, DEQ charges the actual hourly rate of each staff who work to fulfill the request (searching, compiling, scanning/copying, review), $.10 per copy for paper copies, and actual cost for any other expenses incurred. DEQ requires fees to be paid in advance of releasing any records or information, and for larger request, we require a portion of the estimated fees to be paid in advance of beginning the search process.
By entering your name in the space below, you acknowledge and agree to pay any fees assessed that are related to your request.

PLEASE NOTE: While we do not require your mailing address, phone number, and email address, without at least one of them, we have no way of contacting you with questions or even further processing your request.
