Superfund Enforcement

National Information
EPA - Report Environmental Violations

Under the direction of EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), Region 4 Superfund staff pursues enforcement and cost recovery activities on sites where response or remedial actions are planned or taken. EPA's cleanup enforcement program protects human health and the environment by getting those responsible for a hazardous waste site to either clean up or reimburse EPA for its cleanup. Compliance with the nation's environmental law is the ultimate objective, but enforcement is a vital part of encouraging governments, businesses and other companies to meet their environmental obligations. EPA's most often used and most powerful cleanup enforcement mechanism is the Comprehensive, Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund). Superfund is a cleanup authority only and does not otherwise regulate a facility's operations.
