The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency permits coordinated and effective governmental
action to assure the protection of the environment by abating and controlling pollution
on a systematic basis. Reorganization Plan 3 of 1970 transferred to EPA a variety of research, monitoring,
standard setting, and enforcement activities related to pollution abatement and control
to provide for the treatment of the environment as a single interrelated system. Complementary to these activities are the Agency's coordination and support of research
and antipollution activities carried out by State and local governments, private and
public groups, individuals, and educational institutions. EPA reinforces efforts among other Federal agencies with respect to the impact of
their operations on the environment.
