Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs)

An SEP is an environmentally beneficial project approved by the Agency and a Respondent as part of a settlement. The Respondent funds the SEP by contributing all or a portion of their penalty to the approved project. Typically, SEPs are performed by third party, non-profit organizations.

SEPs must involve an activity which the Respondent is not otherwise legally required to perform, and which does not directly benefit the Respondent. The project must have some relationship or nexus to the violation and must be a discreet project with a beginning and an end. SEP funds may be used in conjunction with funding sources other than the Respondent to accomplish a specific project.

SEPs include the following types: environmental enhancement; education and awareness; research, monitoring and data collection; emergency planning and preparedness; pollution prevention; and pollution reduction projects.
