Action for Environmental Quality. Standards and Enforcement for Air and Water Pollution Control.
Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for setting and enforcing environmental quality standards for the nation. With the Clean Air Act of 1970 (P.L. 91-604) and the Water Pollution Control Act of 1972 (P.L. 92-500), the first truly nationwide control programs were established. This booklet is designed to inform the public of the work being done by the EPA in the areas of water and air pollution, of the standards established through much research and testing, and of the enforcement policies and legislation now in effect. Terms are defined and guidelines for citizen action in environmental concerns are included. (MA)
