Due to the COVID-19 crisis, walk-in service at DEM's Permit Application Center (PAC) at DEM Headquarters in Providence has been paused. The Office is still accepting and processing applications and honoring all scheduled in-person appointments. Applications can be dropped off directly outside the PAC, and the team will respond within one to two business days.
Contact 401-222-4700 ext. 7265 or email DEM.PAC@dem.ri.gov with questions or to set up an appointment for other services. If you are seeking assistance for wetlands or OWTS/septic systems, please call 401-222-4700 and ask for the person on-call for the specific program.
