Environmental and Regulatory

• FOH has the knowledge and expertise to ensure that your agency meets all environmental regulatory


Federal agencies, like private industries, must comply with all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

requirements as well as state, tribal, and local regulations. The EPA’s standard for Federal compliance

holds that Federal facility environmental compliance should equal or exceed the rest of the regulatory

community and that Federal facilities should lead the way in minimizing environmental contamination

and its impact on public health.

As such, Federal agencies are expected to develop sound environmental programs that will not only

ensure long-term compliance, but will also act proactively and set goals for pollution prevention and

waste minimization. Additionally, agencies must have provisions in place for the quick clean up of

hazardous and radioactive waste.

• .Legislation such as the Clean Air Act (CAA), the Clean Water Act (CWA), the Toxic Substances Control Act

(TSCA), and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) has placed an increased burden on Federal

agencies and increased the workload associated with environmental programs. The law that has had the

greatest impact upon Federal facilities is the Federal Facility Compliance Act (FFCA). This law requires Federal

facilities to comply with all applicable Federal, State, interstate, and local solid and hazardous waste


FOH’s can help your agency’s environmental compliance personnel develop highly effective environmental

protection programs. FOH’s professionals can help clarify legal requirements by providing comprehensive

consultation designed to ensure compliance

an abandoned site. FOH can also conduct Phase II Environmental Site Assessments to further investigate

areas of concern that are identified in Phase I assessments and determine the true liability associated with a
