Criminal Cases Search - The Summary of Criminal Prosecutions, resulting from environmental investigations, provides information on concluded criminal enforcement cases, by the U.S. government's fiscal year (October to September).

Envirofacts - Envirofacts provides data from across the EPA programs.

National Enforcement Initiatives - Every three years, EPA sets national enforcement initiatives to focus civil and criminal enforcement resources and expertise on serious pollution problems affecting communities. See our progress made under each of the initiatives.

Enforcement Annual Results - At the end of each fiscal year, EPA announces the results of compliance assurance and enforcement activities.
