EPA Regulations
The EPA has jurisdiction over a wide range of regulations that affect portable sanitation 

The EPA is the U.S. government agency charged with implementing environmental laws. Within the EPA, the Office of Wastewater Management  (OWM) is particularly focused on issues that relate to our industry. While they will work with companies on achieving compliance with environmental requirements, when warranted, the EPA will take civil or criminal enforcement action.

Which standards are relevant to portable sanitation? There are many, and most can be found on the EPA’s website in a list called “Regulations 101.”

Here are links to the EPA regulations that are most relevant to the portable sanitation industry:



Additional information related to the EPA and the portable sanitation industry can be found in the PSAI Industry Resource Directory, available in print and online for PSAI Members.
