  1. This is Laurie Leib from DEQ. We are still having a problem with the fact that I am the GRAMA Coordinator, but we actually 7 different divisions that handle their own GRAMA requests because each has their own set of files due to what they take care of on a daily basis. So… these divisions would be:
    Air Quality (AQ) GRAMA contact – Linda Gould
    Drinking Water (DW) GRAMA contact – Melissa Copfer
    Environmental Response & Remediation (ERR) GRAMA contact – Melissa Ottley
    Radiation Control (DRC) GRAMA Contact – Rusty Lundberg
    Solid & Hazardous Waste (SHW) GRAMA contact – Jerry Rogers
    Water Quality (WQ) GRAMA contact – Marsha Case

    At the meeting it was mentioned that we need these different divisions somehow listed under DEQ so they can know when their divisions have a request. Let me know what I can do on my end.

    I was glad that I had gone to learn the different things that were said. Thought it was fascinating how Chris Calton was so clever in getting her people to learn GRAMA items and enjoy doing it as well as attending. The meeting was very informative on what is happening and what will be happening down the road for the future. Thank you for doing this.
