Alii! Welcome to the Palau Environmental Quality Protection Board website!
Palau is well known throughout the world as having pristine blue waters, beautiful
natural forests and unique cultural aesthetics. In an effort to conserve Palau’s
natural treasures, the Palau EQPB works to ensure that projects involving earthmoving,
waste and water quality are done in an environmentally sustainable manner. Our staff
are well-trained and committed in fulfilling this mandate.
The EQPB office is composed of 7 departments comprised of 15 staff.
These are Administrative and Supporting services, Education and Outreach Programs,
Laboratory, Environmental Surveillance, Compliance, Solid Waste, Environmental Engineering,
Legal Counsel and last but not least Hazmat, Pesticides, Pollution.
The website is designed to allow our customers to easily access our applications
and download free electronic information tools such as our newly published erosion
and sediment control plan and storm water manual. From wherever you are, you can
now easily download information(s) or communicate with the EQPB staff anytime. We
also welcome any comments or suggestions that would allow us to serve you better.
