Best Answer

Federal and State authorities have broad powers to enforce environmental laws including both civil and criminal prosecution. The political will to enforce these laws is not very powerfull at the moment. Some of them do, called Environmental Protection Units, or Dumping Units, or Hazmat Investigations
