Environmental Justice: EPA’s New Focus in Inspection and Enforcement



Are you operating in an Environmental Justice (EJ) community? Now is the time to find out — and prepare for more aggressive enforcement and inspection practices from the EPA.

Join Faegre Drinker’s environmental compliance team on February 16 for a webinar addressing EPA’s new focus on EJ inspection and enforcement. Since EPA pledged to deliver “measurable results” in this area, we anticipate the agency will start focusing its state oversight and direct inspection and enforcement efforts in EJ communities to realize this goal. Geosyntec Senior Principal Consultant Jill Cooper will join Faegre Drinker’s Doug Benevento, Jim Spaanstra and Julian Harrell for an engaging discussion on EPA’s new approach, how it affects regulators and community associations and what this means for your business.
