DescriptionThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA or sometimes USEPA) is an agency of
the federal government of the United States charged with protecting human health and
with safeguarding the natural environment: air, water, and land. The EPA was proposed
by President Nixon and began operation on December 2, 1970, when it was passed by
Congress, and signed into law by President Nixon.

The EPA has since been chiefly responsible for the environmental policy of the U.S. It is
led by its Administrator, who is appointed by the President of the United States. The EPA
is not a Cabinet agency, but the Administrator is normally given cabinet rank.
