Environment Agency reduces resources

September 30, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is dedicated to keeping polluters in check. Unfortunately, this important organization is actually considering reducing the amount of resources available for enforcement plans due to lack of funding.

If the EPA enforcement team’s budget is cut, there will be fewer staff and resources available to conduct compliance checks at industrial facilities and it will be more difficult for the EPA to respond to environmental violations. Meanwhile, numerous communities could be exposed to toxic air and water pollution, creating further problems for human health in addition to the environment.
