Enforcement in New England

Water Enforcement Program

The Region's Water Enforcement Program is responsible for conducting compliance monitoring and enforcement activities under the authorities of the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). Clean Water Act enforcement programs include: National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Program (NPDES) which regulates direct discharges to waters of the United States; Pretreatment Program which regulates discharges to publicly owned treatment works; Wetlands Program; Sludge Program; and Spill Prevention and Countermeasures and Control Program (SPCC). The six New England states also have their own authorities to enforce state wastewater and drinking water laws and regulations.
