EPA Facilities

EPA's Cincinnati AWBERC facility

The Office of Administration (OA) seeks to improve the environmental performance of all EPA facilities through energy and water efficiency and resource conservation.

EPA occupies 175 offices and laboratories nationwide. Of these, approximately 57 are large facilities—those greater than 20,000 gross square feet. The remainder of EPA's facilities are smaller, special-purpose buildings and project offices scattered throughout the country. EPA facilities are either owned by the Agency, owned or leased by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) and assigned to EPA, or leased directly by EPA.

EPA Facilities Manual

EPA's standards for planning and managing the Agency's office and laboratory facilities are outlined in the EPA Facilities Manual. View the EPA Facilities Manual and its supporting materials.

EPA Regional and National Offices

EPA also operates 10 regional offices throughout the United States and 12 national Headquarters facilities in the Washington, DC metro area, most of which are located in Federal Triangle. For these spaces, EPA leases much of its office space directly from building owners or through GSA. EPA is striving to improve the environmental performance of these facilities as well.
