Are in My Community?

To better serve the people of Arizona, ADEQ created My Community to provide information about environmental issues, plus actions to address them, in your community. This easy-to-use online tool lets you quickly learn about what’s important to you and your family.

My Community strengthens ADEQ’s ability to transparently share our work's scale, scope, and progress to protect Arizona's public health and the environment. It is part of ADEQ’s continuous improvement efforts to identify and resolve environmental issues more effectively and efficiently.
