This project will demonstrate a future of how the environment could be protected with cutting edge data science. Through a partnership with the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance at EPA, the researchers will pioneer machine learning methods.
Specifically, the researchers will assist EPA to increase compliance with the Clean Water Act by developing risk models that enable early enforcement interventions and evaluating the effectiveness of enforcement techniques in a randomized controlled trial. The partnership is intended to lead to a broader effort to use data science to tackle a range of environmental compliance challenges.
