 The Indiana Department of Environmental Management’s (IDEM’s) Northwest Regional Office has moved to Valparaiso. Services provided by the office and staff levels remain the same.

 IDEM’s Northwest Regional Office oversees the compliance of regulated operations, provides assistance on voluntary pollution prevention and recycling activities, and partners with businesses, environmental groups and municipalities on projects for the remediation of the Grand Calumet River area of concern.

 “The new Northwest Regional Office address is in a central location in the three-county territory we cover, close to Interstate 65 and State Road 49, which allows for easy access,” said Thomas Easterly, IDEM commissioner. “We have made a smooth transition to our new Valparaiso location and will continue working closely with area residents, groups, and businesses to address Northwest Indiana’s air, land and water issues.”  

 The new telephone numbers for the IDEM Northwest Regional Office are (888) 209-8892 (toll free) and (219) 464-0233 (direct). The new mailing address is 330 West US Highway 30, Suite F, Valparaiso, IN  46385.

 IDEM’s Northwest Regional Office is one of four regional offices that work, in addition to IDEM’s main Indianapolis Office, to provide businesses and citizens with compliance and technical assistance on federal and state environmental regulations and issues.
