Excerpt
Excerpt: American society's widespread concern about the environment is a relatively recent development that has fueled rapid growth in environmental regulation. In 1970, there were only 500 pages in the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) devoted to environmental protection. Today, there are thousands of pages of environmental regulations in the C.F.R. implementing over 70 pieces of environmental legislation. In addition, many states have enacted environmental regulatory schemes that rival their federal counterparts in scope and complexity. B. DOD installations must interact with multiple sources of environmental regulators. 1. At the federal level, most environmental statutes are primarily administered and enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA has divided the country into 10 regions. While subject to direction from EPA National Headquarters in Washington, D.C., each EPA region has a distinctive personality that is often displayed when enforcing environmental requirements at federal facilities. 2. Increasingly, state and local agencies are administering and enforcing environmental requirements that impact on federal facilities. Some of these requirements are based on federal programs that have been delegated by EPA or other federal agencies to the state. Other requirements are unique to the state, or products of local initiatives. Typically, states assign principal responsibility for environmental regulation to various branches or divisions within their existing Departments of Natural Resources or Health.
