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.

Developer API (Beta)
In an effort to increase open access to government data, we have released a beta version of a Public API (application programming interface) with access to the entire public data set of enforcement orders.
If you are a developer and would like to use the API, please review the API documentation site, and contact us with any questions, suggestions, or other feedback.
