Federal agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal, state, and local organizations are tasked with regulating the negative environmental impact that corporations, other business entities, factories, and individual enterprises may have. Unfortunately, some companies and person only have their own financial interests in mind and do not consider the well-being of the surrounding community or neighboring businesses, and they may work hard to dodge environmental laws and avoid taking responsibility for their toxic waste and other dangerous pollutants.
