 Environmental Protection Agency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of the United States federal government charged with protecting human health and with safeguarding the natural environment: air, water, and land.
The legislation here is general environmental protection legislation, and may also apply to other units of the government, including the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture.
The EPA is responsible for researching and setting national standards for a variety of environmental programs and delegates to states and tribes responsibility for issuing permits, and monitoring and enforcing compliance.

To the extent that the dioxin risk reassessment is ultimately relied upon in reaching a final agency action, that risk reassessment would be part of the administrative record and EPA would have to defend against arguments that the reliance on the risk reassessment made the final action arbitrary and capricious.
EPA issues water quality criteria guidance to the states on the concentrations of pollutants, such as dioxin, in surface water that are consistent with the protection of surface waters for drinking water, fish consumption, and other uses.
States then use this guidance as a basis for the adoption of regulatory water quality criteria, which are subject to EPA approval or disapproval.
