BNL has an extensive program in place to ensure compliance with all applicable environmental regulatory and permit requirements. Currently, the Laboratory must comply with more than 100 sets of federal, state, and local environmental regulations, numerous site-specific permits, 13 equivalency permits for the operation of groundwater remediation systems, and several other binding agreements.

Compliance monitoring is conducted to ensure that wastewater effluents, air emissions, and groundwater monitoring data comply with regulatory and permit limits issued under the Federal Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Oil Pollution Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, and New York State equivalents.
