Most operations in the United States subject to environmental regulations should focus on regulations coming from the Federal government, their respective state environmental agency, and any local agencies (regional, county, or city). However, additional concerns outside of the realm of environmental regulations, such as Environmental Justice issues, can impact facilities in areas where no other regulations might apply. Also bear in mind that regulators at any level, from the Federal government to your local community, can, within reason, visit your facility or ask for a demonstration of compliance, especially when it comes to obtaining new permits, renewals, facility construction, modification, expansion, etc.
Getting into compliance is like buying a car - how much you'll spend depends on what you need. For locations with few regulatory concerns, environmental compliance can be a cheap and easy thing. For large, complex operations, environmental compliance could cost a small fortune. There's different ways of looking at it too, from regulatory fees paid to government agencies, to the costs of hiring consultants or other outside help, to facility modifications, ongoing compliance tasks, and more.
Just like the price, the timeframe all depends. Some compliance concerns can be identified, the proper paperwork filled out in a few hours, and once you mail that documentation out, you're "in compliance" with environmental regulations. Other regulatory concerns take months to years to apply for, revise, and ultimately get permits and approvals. Again, smaller, simpler operations tend to be able to get into compliance very quickly, while larger, more complex facilities will take much, much longer.
