Environmental regulation and enforcement over the past thirty years has evolved from a barely significant effort undertaken primarily by a few federal agencies into a vast nationwide network of federal and state agencies. EPA Compliance and Enforcement Answer Book 2015 provides a comprehensive overview into this complex area.

The book uniquely covers a range of subjects related to the inner workings of the EPA that only former agency enforcement attorneys can provide. The authors, who have extensive experience with EPA civil and criminal enforcement programs, state regulatory agencies, and the U.S. Department of Justice, provide practical guidance on how to prepare for and weather government investigations.

EPA Compliance and Enforcement Answer Book 2015 provides, in an easy Q&A format, a roadmap to the Environmental Protection Agency’s criminal, administrative, and civil judicial enforcement strategies. It describes the EPA’s enforcement priorities and compliance monitoring program. Possible defenses to enforcement are provided.
