EPA’s Environmental Enforcement Results for 2017

EPA has made available its Environmental Enforcement Results for fiscal year 2017. The results, published by the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), are available online. There you will find a summary and analysis of OECA’s accomplishments in its civil, criminal, Superfund, and other compliance programs (including federal facility compliance).

Also available is an interactive map showing facility locations and other information on enforcement actions and cases from FY2017. It includes civil enforcement actions, criminal cases, and cases in which EPA provided significant support to state-lead criminal prosecutions.

One more feature included in the annual results is an update on EPA’s progress on its eight national enforcement initiatives for fiscal years 2017–2019.
