  • EPA may conduct inspections to monitor compliance
  • Non-compliance may result in a Federal Facilities Compliance Agreement
pollution prevention p2
Pollution Prevention (P2)
  • Use pollution prevention projects and activities to correct and prevent noncompliance with environmental regulatory requirements
  • Develop a P2 program at locations that compares life cycle costs of treatment/ disposal of waste streams with alternatives that eliminate or reduce toxic chemicals at the source
