Serving EPA Region 9

The EFC at Sacramento State is operated by the Office of Water Programs (OWP). OWP has provided cost-effective solutions for protecting and enhancing water resources, public health, and the environment through training, scientific research, and public education for over 40 years.

The EFC will serve Region 9 state and local governments, tribal communities, and the private sector in the areas of financial planning and asset management. The goal of the EFC is to enable these entities to become capable of funding environmental and public health services, in the short term, and to be able to adapt to future needs as regulations, technology, and resources change.


EPA Region 9 covers the Pacific Southwest

EPA Region 9 encompasses four states, 148 sovereign tribes and dozens of Pacific islands. It is a diverse, beautiful and productive part of the nation, from the lush rainforests of Hawaii and the agricultural oasis of the Central Valley to the thrumming economies of Silicon Valley, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Nearly 50 million people make their homes and livelihoods throughout the 386,000 square mile-jurisdiction of Region 9, producing more than $2 trillion in goods and services each year.

Working to solve environmental challenges

Places throughout the region – Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, the Pacific Islands and tribal lands – are encumbered with a host of environmental challenges.

Region 9 strives to enforce federal standards governing clean air, clean water, toxics and hazardous waste by developing and implementing multi-disciplinary approaches to specific geographic areas within the region. Over the past four decades, Region 9 has spent billions of dollars and millions of staff hours to maintain and safeguard our most precious resources: the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the land we treasure. The activities conducted by the EFC are intended to support these efforts.
