Important Note Regarding Clean Air Act High Priority Violators (HPVs)

The listing of a facility as a "clean air act high priority violator" means that EPA or a responsible State or local agency has gathered, or otherwise received, information upon which the agency believes a finding of violation of one or more applicable requirement(s) of the Clean Air Act can be established.  It does not necessarily mean that the agency has yet made a formal finding of violation or that the facility has yet been found to have violated the applicable requirement(s) in an administrative or judicial proceeding.  The definition of a "clean air act high priority violator" to be used by EPA and responsible State and local agencies may be reviewed on our page entitled "High Priority Violator (HPV) Policy Questions & Answers."
