Compliance & Enforcement


As the state's environmental regulatory agency, one of our most important responsibilities is to ensure that businesses and facilities operate according to state and federal environmental laws and regulations. NDEQ offers a variety of assistance to bring about compliance. The agency also conducts inspections on a routine basis and in response to citizen complaints. In some cases, circumstances may require NDEQ to use its enforcement authorities, which may result in administrative or criminal actions.
