Non-Compliance with a Risk Management Plan

Under the Clean Water Act, the RMO/Is have the ability to issue orders to ensure the protection of drinking water sources. These orders can include, complying with a Risk Management Plan by a specific date, displaying documentation to the RMO/I, and paying for environmental damage. The RMO can also “cause a thing to be done”, which often involves the removal of a drinking water threat at the expense of the person engaged in the activity.
