Abstract
The document is part of a six-volume set entitled 'Economic Law Enforcement' which has been prepared by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection. The series describes a promising approach to the enforcement of environmental laws now being implemented and tested in Connecticut. The new approach, through the use of administratively imposed civil penalties, uses economic incentives that can be adjusted to meet different levels of resistance or cooperation. At most, the penalty to a violator would not exceed the cost of meeting his environmental requirements. It thus removes the economic advantage of deferring clean up activities without being unduly harsh.
