Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs)

What is a SEP?
A SEP is an environmentally beneficial project that a respondent voluntarily agrees to perform as a condition of settling an enforcement action. A SEP is an activity that the violator would not otherwise have been required to perform, and in which the public or the environment is the primary beneficiary. Since January 2010, forty-two SEPs have been implemented in C&E.
