Furlough closures

September calendar with furlough days marked
Current information and updates about furlough days. 


Ecology business operations will be closed September 25, October 30 and November 30. This is in response to unpaid furlough days required by the Governor’s Directive 20-08 to achieve state budget savings.

  • If you have time-sensitive business with Ecology, all actions or documents due by an upcoming furlough date will be considered ON TIME if submitted on the next business day following that furlough day.
  • Report a spill or environmental emergency by phone as normal to the regional office that serves your county. Spills can also be reported 24/7 by calling 1-800-OILS-911.
