Participating states provided descriptions of the amount and nature of compliance and beyond compliance assistance provided, compliance inspection triggers and frequency, and enforcement tools and reporting requirements in place during the three years prior to the project. This program design information was compared to the performance results to identify if there were any oversight practices among the states that could be associated with higher performance rates.

This analysis indicated that onsite compliance assistance and active beyond compliance assistance programs appear to be associated with higher performance levels. The other program design attributes did not appear to be related to SQG performance levels.

Conclusion

Over a three year period, the ten project states were able to use the same set of common measures to evaluate the environmental performance of a common group of facilities. The project also created a replicable template that can be used by other agencies to build the capacity to measure group performance and to use the information to identify the most efficient and effective strategies for promoting better environmental performance.

This effort has already paved the way for other ERP-type measurement projects. Current activities being considered or under development include:

  • The same project states selecting additional sectors to analyze
