Environmental Compliance

Kennesaw State University (KSU) is committed to minimizing the University's adverse impact on the environment. The Environmental Compliance Programs at KSU Provide regulatory guidance across the University community. KSU is a diverse organization with facilities and operations that has the potential to impact the environment via Air, Land and Water. All of these environmental impacts are regulated and enforced by the State of Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some State or Federal regulations may require specific operations to be permitted, which establishes and enforces minimum regulatory requirements so compliance is maintained. Additionally, as a quality assurance measure, we will perform periodic external permit reviews, site inspections and training, so overall compliance is maintained to the highest level possible.
