2011 Enforcement Overview
In 2011, EPA's enforcement activities in Region 10 resulted in a number of significant environmental benefits, including the long-term cleanup of more than 100 million cubic yards of highly contaminated land and water, an investment of more than $345 million in actions and equipment to reduce pollution and protect the environment; and more than $25 million in civil penalties for non-compliance with environmental laws and regulations. In particular, Region 10’s largest settlements will help reduce the threat of future oil spills in the North Slope’s fragile ecosystem, address human health and ecological risks from widespread, historic mining contamination in North Idaho and eastern Washington, and improve air and water quality in Pacific Northwest communities.
