Agency inspections are visits to a facility or site for the purposes of gathering information to determine whether it is in compliance. During an inspection, facility and site owners and operators can expect to be interviewed, the review of reports and records, the taking of photographs, the collection of samples, and the observation of operations. Inspections are usually conducted on single-media programs such as the CWA but can be conducted for more than one media program. Inspections can also be conduced to address a specific environmental problem, a facility or industry sector, or a geographic area or ecosystem.
