Region I Federal Facility Program Goal
The primary goal of EPA's Federal Facility Enforcement and Assistance/Pollution Prevention Program is to ensure that all Federal Agencies comply with all applicable Federal, State, and local environmental laws/regulations and that Federal compliance rates meet or surpass the rest of the regulated community. EPA New England is focused on ensuring long-term environmental compliance and will work with Federal Agencies in both the enforcement and assistance capacities to accomplish this goal.
