Permit Portal

Welcome to the DEQ online Permit Portal. This site provides access to the available online permit application processes and payment options. User guides and information resources are included within each application process.

This portal is part of DEQ’s Permitting Transformation Program. The goal is to develop a robust online system for applying, tracking and paying for permits, licenses and certificates. We are working to streamline processes and improve transparency by modernizing tracking and access to permitting actions. As more permits become available in the online system, they will be accessible through this portal.
What We Do

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is the lead stewardship agency for the protection of North Carolina's environmental resources.

The organization, which has offices from the mountains to the coast, administers regulatory programs designed to protect air quality, water quality, and the public's health, and also works to advance an all-of-the-above energy strategy that fits North Carolina’s needs. DEQ also offers technical assistance to businesses, farmers, local governments, and the public and encourages responsible behavior with respect to the environment through education programs provided at DEQ facilities and through the state's school system.

DEQ touches the lives of all North Carolinians in many ways to enhance and ensure our quality of life.
