Welcome to the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy

With the passage of LB302, on July 1, 2019, the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and the Nebraska Energy Office merged into the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy. Our mission is to protect, preserve and enhance Nebraska’s Air, Land, Water, and Energy resources. We enforce regulations and provide assistance, but to fully accomplish this vital mission we need your assistance. We encourage you to work with us to ensure future generations can use and enjoy the precious natural resources we enjoy today.
