Renumbered and Reformatted Mississippi Commission on Environmental Quality and Mississippi Environmental Quality Permit Board Regulations

The Mississippi environmental regulations were renumbered and reformatted in 2013 pursuant to the amended Administrative Procedures Act passed by the state legislature which mandated that all state agencies have uniform numbering to conform to a statewide administrative code. The regulations, were effective August 26, 2013, and thereafter. Although the changes are not substantive, they affected the numbering and citation of all of the Mississippi Commission on Environmental Quality and the Mississippi Environmental Quality Permit Board regulations. While the numbering and citation of the regulations changed, the numbering, formatting and citation of the state environmental statutes remain the same. Beginning August 26, 2013, the regulations shall be referenced and cited consistent with standard form required by the Secretary of State.
