The Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) has developed this
Compliance Assurance Resources Compendium which contains over 400 web links to
various types of resources - policies, guidance training, guidebooks, Web sites, fact
sheets, etc.- to help Regions, states and tribes in implementing the performance-based
strategies for each of the national enforcement and compliance priorities for FY2005-
2007. This information should also be useful for members of the regulated community as
well.  The Compendium is located on the National Environmental Compliance Assistance
Clearinghouse and on OECA's Home Page as a pdf file at

This Compendium provides Compliance Assistance, Compliance Monitoring, and
Enforcement resources for the following priorities in separate chapters.

FY2005- 2007 National Compliance and Enforcement Priorities are:

      Animal feeding operations (AFOs) are livestock operations, such as dairies, hog, and
      chicken farms, that confine and concentrate animals and their waste. AFOs remain a
      source of water and air pollution in EPA Region 9 and around the nation. This Web
      site describes the problems associated with AFOs and improper animal waste
      management, and the efforts of EPA and its state partners to prevent AFO pollution

30     Waste Water Information, NPDES permitting

       Waste Water Facilities which discharge pollutants from point sources (such as
       discharge pipes) into waters of the United States are required to obtain National
       Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. The NPDES
       wastewater permitting program addresses discharges from municipal sewage

31     Effluent Guidelines Plan

       The Effluent Guidelines Plan provides an overview of the Effluent Guidelines
       Program. It lists ongoing and future effluent guidelines projects and preliminary
       studies. The Plan is published biennially in the Federal Register. This page provides
       links to these FR notices as well as fact sheets and related information.

34.    Waste Water Programs for Small Communities

      Protecting public health and improving water quality are the major goals of the
      Clean Water Act. Small Communities, Indian Tribes and Colonias often experience
      difficulty in achieving these goals. Many communities and tribes could avoid costly
      construction projects through improved management skills., adequate financing,
      appropriate technology, and better wastewater treatment system operation and
      maintenance. The Office of Wastewater Management provides water and wastewater
      services to tribal and community leaders through its "Small Communities Team."
      The team partners with organizations to manage programs of technical assistance,
      financial assistance, and education & training to small communities and Indian
      tribes. EPA has created  a site for onsite/decentralized wastewater systems that
      provides information on management, funding, technology, and public outreach to
      assist small communities when using or considering decentralized systems to
      manage their wastewater needs. These programs are summarized below.

17.    Guidance on Mitigation of Impact to Small Business while Implementing Air
      Quality Standards and Regulations

      On July 16, 1997, President Clinton directed the EPA to implement the newly
      revised ozone and particulate matter National Ambient Air Quality Standards
      (NAAQS) in a common-sense, cost-effective manner. An important element of the
      President's message was the directive to "work with the States to include in their SIPs
      flexible regulatory alternatives that minimize the economic impact and paperwork


      burden on small businesses to the greatest possible degree consistent with public
      health protection." this guidance addresses this directive by outlining potential
      implementation strategies that would mitigate adverse impacts on small sources, and
      by encouraging States to make use of these strategies wherever possible and

18    Definition of "Regulated Air Pollutant"

      This April 26, 1993 memo from Lydia Wegman of EPA's Office of Air Quality
      Planning and Standards (OAQPS) defines regulated air pollutants for purposes of
      Title V. This guidance lists the following as regulated pollutants: NOx and VOC (as
      ozone precursors); all pollutants for which a NAAQS has been promulgated (e.g.,
      SO2, CO); any pollutant subject to a promulgated NSPS; any of the ozone-depleting
      substances specified as Class I or n under Title VI; and any pollutant subject to a
      standard promulgated under ?112 or other requirements established under 7112,
      including ?112(g)(2), (j), and (r).
19     PM10 as the Regulated Pollutant for Title V

20.     Title V Interim Program. Approval Guidance

       This memo explains EPA's criteria for granting interim Title V program approvals.
       Interim approval is discretionary and will be granted only where such is found to be
       in the best interests of the Title V permitting program.  It can be granted only to
       programs that "substantially" meet the requirements of Title V.

21.     Clearinghouse for Inventories and Air Emission Factors

       This site, maintained by EPA's Emission Factor and Inventory group, provides access

       This Web page is intended to provide compliance assistance to the mineral processing
       sector, and to assist state regulators and the public in understanding the federal
       requirements on the disposal of mineral processing wastes. Regulation affecting mineral
       processing wastes was developed through a long process covering the period 1980 to
       1991.  It involved numerous proposed and final rule makings and federal litigation. If a
       company is generating non-exempt hazardous wastes, it may need to obtain a permit
       from an authorized state or EPA Region.

      approximately 640 individual facilities in five industrial sectors: automobile
      assembly, pulp manufacturing, petroleum refining, iron and steel production,
      and the primary smelting and refining of aluminum, copper, lead, and zinc

      Regulation of the mining sector involves every major EPA program. Mining operations
      generate tailings and waste rock that must be disposed of, and create wastewater


       discharges and air emissions. As a result, mining can affect surface and ground water
       quality, drinking water supplies and air quality. Impacts from operating and abandoned
       mines can also cause extensive losses of aquatic and terrestrial habitat.

3.      Common Sense Initiative

       The Common Sense Initiative was an innovative approach to environmental
       protection and pollution prevention developed by the U.S. EPA. The Initiative
       addresses environmental management by industrial sector rather than by
       environmental medium (air, water, land). EPA selected six industries to serve as
       CSI pilots: automobile manufacturing, computer and electronics, iron and steel,


       metal finishing, petroleum refining, and printing. Six sector subcommittees,
       each consisting of representatives from industry, environmental justice organizations,
       labor organizations, environmental organization, federal, state,
       and local governments, address environmental issues facing these industries.
       The CSI Initiative ended in 1998.

Other Waste Related Issues - Mining Waste in Indian Country

35.    Many tribes have mineral resources on their lands and have either experienced mining
       activities in the past or plan to engage in mining in the future. Mining activities generate
       waste from the ore or mineral extraction process and from beneficiation (i.e., ore
       separation from overburden and host rock as well as concentration activities to purify the
       metals). Mining can create environmental problems such as acid mine drainage, erosion,
       dust emission, and surface- and ground-water contamination. The page provides access to
