Yes, in most cases the EPA is allowed to work with state agencies to enforce environmental laws passed by Congress. State agencies can create and run their own programs in compliance with the regulations in the law, provided the EPA approves the program. The state agencies are ultimately responsible for enforcing the regulations, though the EPA can step in if necessary.
In general, the enforcement process involves identifying facilities that need regulation, educating those who operate the facility on compliance, monitoring them, carrying out proper enforcement if violations occur, and following up on former violators to ensure compliance.
