To achieve this goal, the Department is committed to using innovative and flexible approaches, especially with smaller businesses. By integrating our traditional enforcement program with regulatory and technical assistance and pollution prevention techniques, the Department anticipates a higher level of environmental protection for the citizens of the State of Connecticut.
