Environmental Conferences, Trainings & Workshops Hosted by DEQ

Periodically DEQ hosts conferences, trainings, and workshops on environmental topics to provide environmental professionals and other interested parties an opportunity to network and learn about air quality, water quality, and waste management issues of interest and concern.


  • Solvent Solutions Workshop: Coeur d'Alene and Lewiston: How does your business or place of work use solvents? Have you considered how new federal rules may affect how you dispose of solvent waste, or what resources you might use to choose less hazardous solvents? If so, mark your calendars for this informative workshop.

  • Idaho Water Quality Workshop: Boise, January 30-February 1, 2018: Discuss water quality methods, results and applications. Since 1990, this workshop has provided a forum for technical dissemination of water quality topics, as well as opportunities to network and share information.


  • Funding Agency Training for Water and Wastewater Projects: Various locations, August and September: The USDA Rural Development, Idaho Department of Environmental Quality, Idaho Department of Commerce, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host free, one-day training sessions designed for consulting engineers, grant writers, councils of government, and interested community members and leaders.
