Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. In Connecticut the counterpart to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). The DEEP is responsible for protecting Connecticut's land, water, and air from pollution.

Administration and enforcement. Connecticut has received authorization from the EPA to implement its own state air, water, and waste management rules. To receive federal authorization, DEEP's rules must be, at the time of authorization, at least as stringent as the federal rules. To maintain federal authorization, the DEEP is required to adopt either EPA's latest environmental rules or more stringent state standards.
