Enforcement and Compliance Assurance

Goal

The goal of the Region 5 enforcement program is to promote compliance with federal environmental laws. Successful implementation of the federal enforcement program provides a deterrent to non-compliance and contributes to the Region 5 mission of protecting human health and preserving natural resources.

Partners

Region 5 works in concert with state programs in order to achieve the purpose of its enforcement program. Region 5 states are authorized to operate most federal regulatory programs. However, a vigorous federal enforcement presence, in both delegated and non-delegated programs, is essential to creating an atmosphere in which compliance can be sustained.
