More About KY Division of Compliance Assistance

The Kentucky Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA) exists to provide services that increase environmental knowledge and encourage behavioral changes. We do this to improve regulatory compliance, achieve exceptional performance and enhance the quality of Kentucky’s environment and communities.

The Division of Compliance Assistance consists of four program areas.


The Kentucky Brownfield Redevelopment Program seeks to help redevelop and revitalize properties that are abandoned or underutilized due to real or perceived contamination. There are an estimated 8,000 brownfields across the state. They include sites such as old gas stations, mine-scarred lands, abandoned factories, old schools and hospitals and meth labs. Our program offers comprehensive services to help with these problem properties.

The Environmental Compliance Assistance Program (ECAP) has staff available to answer your environmental compliance questions relating to air, water and waste issues. Our staff is available to answer your questions via our toll-free hotline or e-mail. ECAP staff offer a variety of services to help you meet and exceed your environmental compliance responsibilities.

KY EXCEL offers a home for individuals, businesses and organizations looking to make a contribution to improving Kentucky’s environment. This free, voluntary environmental leadership program has had amazing results in protecting the Commonwealth's environment.

The Certification and Licensing Branch is home to the solid waste, drinking water and wastewater certification programs. Through education and certification exams, these three programs help ensure that the people charged with dealing with community waste, drinking water and wastewater are knowledgeable and capable of handling the responsibilities required of those positions.
