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:

  • First you make a few selections from the choices below to specify the characteristics of your project. (CICA does not keep any record of your choices.)
  • Then you will receive a summary report, including an overview of environmental responsibilities that are particularly important for your project, plus links to more detailed information such as state regulations and the names of people to contact for further assistance.
Thanks for using the CICA Compliance Summary tool.
