Environmental Task Force

Environmental Task Forces can be an effective enforcement tool for any environmental program.  Many local and regional task forces exist, often run by local agencies or district attorneys’ offices.  Some task forces have been created around specific environmental issues or industries. Below is a non-comprehensive list of task forces.

For more information about these task forces, how to join, or how to create your own task force, please contact Christie Vosburg, Assistant General Counsel of Enforcement.
