Near the end of 2015, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) released the results of its investigation into whether fracking played a role in groundwater pollution around the town of Pavillion, Wyo. The agency then used SmartComment's digital platform to help gather comments from the public related to the study's findings.
What We Did
Using SmartComment's platform, the Wyoming DEQ received dozens of comment submissions over a 90-day comment period related to the investigation, including electronic submissionsvia the website, agency letters, and written comments. Maximizing both accessibility and transparency throughout the comment period, the agency was able to consider its next steps in the process possessing the full scope of public opinion regarding the process.
What The Client Said
"SmartComment provides a tool for Wyoming DEQ that not only makes it easier for the public to comment, but also helps our staff better manage and respond to public comments."
