Propose a Beneficial Environmental Project

A Beneficial Environmental Project is one that provides for environmental mitigation which the Respondent is not otherwise legally required to undertake. The Respondents are usually industrial or municipal facilities that have been issued an enforcement action by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (the Department) for violating state environmental laws and regulations. Enforcement actions issued by the Department require the defendant/respondent to mitigate any environmental damages resulting from a violation. Both DEQ and the Respondent must agree to include the BEP in the settlement agreement. The Respondent must voluntarily agree to undertake the beneficial environmental project as a component of a Settlement Agreement stemming from any environmental violation(s), enforcement action or penalty assessment. It is important to note that BEPs are developed in the context of settlement negotiations in which confidentiality between the agency and the respondent is essential to open exchange and exploration of settlement options.
