Compliance & Enforcement - Activity Output Summaries
These reports show the total number of various activities over time and by program. A graph is followed by the data in tabular format for each year.

  • Site Inspections - 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Site Inspection Dashboard by Date Site Inspections are compliance evaluations conducted through site visits. The Department anticipated and planned for the vast majority of these activities, which typically occur at known regulated sites. Most often these inspections are single-day, single-inspector efforts, but may involve more than one inspector and may take more than one day. Each inspection typically evaluates the entire site for a single program's regulations, but may be more broad (multiple programs) or less broad (only a focused part of the site or specific regulations). Site Inspections are counted on the date of the site visit. Details for any activities counted in this category can be accessed through the Compliance Evaluation reports although not all compliance evaluations are considered to be Site Inspections.


  • Submittal Reviews - 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Submittal Review Dashboard by Date Submittal Reviews represent compliance evaluations that are based on the review of materials submitted to the Department. The Department anticipated and planned for the vast majority of these activities, which typically originate from known regulated sites. Submittal Reviews are almost always limited to a single program's regulations and generally pertain to a specific regulation. Submittal Reviews are counted on the date of the review which may vary greatly from the date submittals were due or received. Details for any activities counted in this category can be accessed through the Compliance Evaluation reports although not all compliance evaluations are considered to be Submittal Reviews.


  • Enforcement Actions - 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Enforcement Actions Dashboard by Date Enforcement Actions are the documents issued to violators that spell out the details of one or more alleged violations, any steps needed to correct them, any penalties, and the schedules for compliance and/or penalty payment. Enforcement Actions may be informal notices or formal documents recognized by the courts. Enforcement actions can address multiple violations of varied regulations over time but are typically limited to a single program's concerns from a single compliance evaluation at a single site. Enforcement Actions are counted on the date they are made effective, most often this is the date of receipt by the violator. Details for any activities counted in this category can be accessed through the Enforcement Action reports.


Compliance Rates Outcomes - The data in these reports are based the number of discrete facilities or entities inspected by the programs and reflect the percentage of those facilities or entities found in compliance during Site Inspections only. These figures exclude observations based solely on submittals of self-reported information, monitoring and investigations (such as those stemming from hot-line calls or complaints). Facilities or entities are only counted once even if inspected multiple times within a given period. One or more violations at any inspection in the period counts as non-compliance. The entities counted here are only where routine or pre-planned inspections occurred and are primarily where permits, licenses, or other Departmental approvals exist.
