We perform compliance inspections on the following sites:
We issue both formal and informal enforcement actions. Informal actions generally involve a letter of violation and warning. Formal actions include issuance of Notices of Violation (NOV), Cease & Desist Orders, and Referral for Penalty to the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office.
Formal enforcement actions are used to deter problem violators and are used only after all efforts have been made through conference and conciliation to return the violations to compliance.
Our team responds to solid and hazardous waste complaints and we conduct follow-up inspections as needed to ensure compliance.
