Thank you for visiting the
Environment and Natural Resources Division's "Contact the Division" page.

On behalf of the Assistant Attorney General, the Environment & Natural Resources Division and the Department of Justice would like to thank you for your many inquiries on environmental issues and activities and other matters of special interest to many groups across the nation.

The Assistant Attorney General appreciates the fact that so many citizens have taken the time to express their views and thoughts on these important matters. In some instances, however, the volume of inquiries on a particular issue is such that we cannot respond to each message individually.

We also note that our office
represents the United States in litigation and is not in a position to provide legal advice to others. We would like you to know, however, that all incoming messages are forwarded to the appropriate individual within the organization, and you can be assured that your voices and views are being heard.

Before communicating with ENRD, please read our Privacy Policy for details about how we handle personal information.
