Compliance Summary Tool
Welcome to the CICA Compliance Summary tool! If you are a first-time user of the CICA web site, this is a good place to start, especially if you have come here to investigate the environmental requirements for a particular construction project. The Compliance Summary tool is designed to alert you to your environmental responsibilities found in federal and state laws, and to help you stay in compliance with them.
The information you get from this tool is specific to your project and your location. Here is how it works:
