(Seattle – December 15, 2015) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 10 completed over 50 environmental compliance and enforcement actions in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington from July 1, 2015 through September 30, 2015.

Violations of environmental laws put public health and the environment at risk. EPA enforces federal environmental rules to protect communities and to keep our air, water and land clean and healthy. EPA’s compliance and enforcement efforts also level the playing field by deterring violators who might otherwise have an unfair business advantage over environmentally compliant facilities and businesses.

EPA Region 10 completed the following environmental enforcement actions from July through September 2015:
