Region 4 Program Offices

Report environmental violations
The Region 4 Office of Legal Support provides legal advice and support to EPA Region 4 management and staff on a broad array of matters arising out of the Region's work to protect human health and the environment in eight Southeastern States (Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Carolina and North Carolina). This includes providing legal advice and support to the Region in its efforts to implement the requirements of all major federal environmental statutes and their associated federal regulations, as well as other federal laws such as the Freedom of Information Act. In particular, the Office of Legal Support provides legal counseling support to the Region on the application of EPA regulations, policies, guidance documents, and case law to particular matters, works with EPA's Office of General Counsel in defending the Agency in court challenges to Agency actions, and assists the Region on such matters as rulemaking, permitting, and state program approvals. In addition, the Office provides legal support to the Region on the development and litigation of civil judicial enforcement cases (in conjunction with the Department of Justice), civil administrative enforcement cases, and the development and prosecution of criminal enforcement cases (in conjunction with the United States Attorneys' Office). Other legal support functions include providing legal assistance to the Region in connection with carrying out its day-to-day operations, including entering into contracts, awards, grants, managing property and working with EPA employees.
