EPD Enforcement Orders
The Georgia Environmental Protection Division uses enforcement actions to correct
serious environmental problems and to bring businesses, individuals and government
entities into compliance with environmental laws. The most common enforcement
actions are consent orders and administrative orders. The order explains the
nature of the problem, details the action necessary to correct the problem and
may or may not include a settlement amount or fine.
Georgia EPD provides notice and opportunity for public comment on certain proposed
administrative consent orders. Notices are posted on this web site weekly, usually
on Monday. A thirty-day comment period is provided. Comments, suggestions, hearing
requests, and other information (including but not limited to letters, documents,
photos and videos) should be mailed to the address shown in the notice.
Georgia EPD issues a notice of fully executed administrative orders and fully
executed administrative consent orders issued by the director. The list is posted
on this web page weekly, usually on Monday.
Mail subscriptions to these notices are available at a cost of $50 per year.
That fee provides the subscriber with all notices of proposed and executed orders
issued from July 1 through June 30 of the following year. For information about
subscriptions, call Georgia EPD at (404) 657-5947 inside the Atlanta calling
