Frequent Questions

What are the primary laws EPA uses for radiation protection?

Some laws, such as the Clean Air Act and Safe Drinking Water Act, address radioactive contaminants only as part of the much larger problem of exposure to environmental contaminants. Other laws, such as the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant Land Withdrawal Act, directly address EPA’s role in the disposal of radioactive waste.
