The 2017 Regulatory Newsreel was a great success offering the 115 attendees the opportunity for the EFO environmental, safety and wildlife professionals to network with the agency personnel as well as hear updates from the ODEQ, OWRB, ODWC and the Secretary of Energy & Environment. The presentations for each of the speakers will be added to the EFO website under the Events tab.
