                     Second Quarter FY 1984 Report

                                PREFACE
This is the second quarter FY 1984 report of EPA's Strategic Planning
and Management System (SPMS).  SPMS integrates the Agency's planning
and management functions.  It provides a process for setting systemwide
goals and priorities, issuing timely guidance from the Headquarters
programs to the Regions and States, and conducting results-oriented
program evaluation and oversight.  Each quarter the Office of Management
Systems and Evaluation (OMSE) publishes the report using information
provided by Headquarters and Regional Offices.  It reports performance
during the previous quarter on program objectives and management
commitments in support of the Agency's major goals.  This quarter the
Office of Compliance Analysis and Program Operations (CAPO) has
assumed its new responsibility for the enforcement sections of this
report, except for the section reporting on performance in the Office
of Compliance and Enforcment Monitoring.

We gratefully acknowledge the assistance and cooperation of the many
people in Headquarters and in the Regions who have made timely production
of th;s report possible.

              PROGRESS IN RETURNING AIR  VIOLATORS TO COMPLIANCE

o  THE FIXED UNIVERSE OF SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS WAS ADJUSTED FROM 342 TO
   328.  THIS REFLECTED THE  DELETION OF  14  SOURCES ON THE REGION V LIST
   THAT DID NOT MEET THE SIGNIFICANT VIOLATOR DEFINITION AND THEREFORE
   SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN LISTED.

O  55 SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS  WERE  ADDRESSED  DURING THE SECOND QUARTER
   COMPARED TO THE TARGET OF 45.  .OF THE 55 ADDRESSED DURING THE QUARTER,
   34 WERE RETURNED TO COMPLIANCE,  10  WERE  PLACED ON ACCEPTABLE SCHEDULES,
   AND 11 HAD ENFORCEMENT ACTION  TAKEN.

   -  OVERALL, THE REGIONS ARE AHEAD OF  THEIR MID-YEAR TARGET FOR ADDRESS-
      ING SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS,  HAVING  ADDRESSED 175 VIOLATORS, COMPARED
      TO THE MID-YEAR TARGET OF 162.   OF THE 175 ADDRESSED, 71 HAVE
      BEEN RETURNED TO COMPLIANCE,  23  WERE  PLACED ON ACCEPTABLE COMPLIANCE
      SCHEDULES, AND 81 HAD  STATE OR FEDERAL ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS TAKEN.

O  THE REGIONS IDENTIFIED 85 NEW  SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS DURING THE SECOND
   QUARTER, NEARLY A 25% INCREASE OVER THE  LEVEL REPORTED IN THE PREVIOUS
   QUARTER.  THE MOST NOTABLE INCREASES  WERE IN REGIONS III AND VI.

   -  REGIONS I, IV AND VII  HAVE  IDENTIFIED A TOTAL OF 2 NEW SIGNIFICANT
      VIOLATORS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE  FISCAL YEAR.

O  THE BALANCE SHEET FOR SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS AT MID-YEAR SHOWS 328
   SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS AT  THE BEGINNING OF THE FISCAL YEAR AND 154
   NEWLY IDENTIFIED VIOLATORS VERSUS 139 RESOLVED (INCLUDING 92 IN
   COMPLIANCE WITH EMISSION  LIMITS  AND 47 ON ACCEPTABLE SCHEDULES) AND
   343 SIGNIFICANT VIOLATORS STILL  OUT OF COMPLIANCE AND NOT ON AN
   ACCEPTABLE SCHEDULE.

                        AIR COMPLIANCE  INSPECTIONS

o  COMPLIANCE INSPECTION RATES  HAVE  IMPROVED NATIONALLY TO 84% FOR CLASS
   Al SIP SOURCES.  INSPECTION  RATES  FOR  NSPS SOURCES DROPPED FROM 71% TO
   68%, AND INSPECTION RATES  FOR NESHAP SOURCES INCREASED FROM 62% TO 69%.

   -  REGION VIII IS REPORTING  LOW INSPECTION RATES FOR ALL THREE CATE-
      GORIES OF SOURCES (40%  FOR CLASS  Al,  26% FOR NSPS, AND 0% FOR
      NESHAP).  THE LOW REPORTED RATES  ARE  AT LEAST PARTIALLY ATTRIBUTABLE
      TO THE REGIONS' FAILURE TO FOLLOW REQUIRED PROCEDURES FOR MAINTAINING
      CDS.

   -  REGION IX IS MEETING OR EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS FOR NSPS AND NESHAP
      INSPECTIONS.  ALL OTHER REGIONS NEED  TO GIVE ATTENTION TO IMPROVING
      NSPS AND NESHAP INSPECTION RATES.

o  SECOND QUARTER COMPLIANCE  LEVELS  REMAINED UNCHANGED AS COMPARED TO
   THE LEVELS REPORTED IN THE FIRST  QUARTER, (90% FOR CLASS Al SIPS
   SOURCES, 85% FOR NSPS SOURCES AND 93%  FOR NESHAP SOURCES) COMPARED
   TO THE FIRST QUARTER RATES OF 89%, 86%,  AND 93%, RESPECTIVELY).

o  THE NUMBER OF NEW CIVIL  ACTIONS REFERRED TO EPA HEADQUARTERS  AND

   CIVIL ACTIONS DIRECTLY TO DOJ, AND 8 NEW CRIMINAL ACTIONS  TO  HEAD-
   QUARTERS.  THIS  LEVEL  OF LITIGATION REFERRAL ACTIVITY  IS ABOUT
   TWICE THE MID-FY 1983  LEVEL.

o  FOR THE FIRST TWO QUARTERS OF FY 1984, 82 CIVIL ACTIONS WERE  REFERRED
   TO DOJ.  NONE OF THESE REFERRALS WERE DECLINED BY DOJ.  THIS  NUMBER OF
   CIVIL REFERRALS  TO DOJ IS SLIGHTLY ABOVE THE NUMBER OF CIVIL  REFERRALS
   TO DOJ BY MID-FY 1983.

o  FOR THE FIRST TWO QUARTERS OF FY 1984, 12 CRIMINAL CASES WERE REFERRED
   TO DOJ AND DOJ DECLINED  6 OF THESE REFERRALS.

   -  17 PERCENT  WERE UNDER REVIEW AT EPA HEADQUARTERS.
      21 PERCENT  WERE UNFILED AT DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE/U.S.  ATTORNEYS.
   -  57 PERCENT  WERE FILED IN DISTRICT COURTS.
       5 PERCENT  WERE RETURNED TO THE REGIONS.

o  THE NUMBER OF  CIVIL ACTIONS PENDING AT EPA HEADQUARTERS HAS INCREASED
   DUE TO THE LARGE NUMBER OF NEW REFERRALS IN THE SECOND QUARTER.

o  SIXTY CIVIL ACTIONS WERE CLOSED DURING THE FIRST  TWO QUARTERS OF
   FY 1984.
