The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was established in the Executive Branch of our Federal government as
an independent agency pursuant to Reorganization Plan No. 3 of 1970, effective December 2, 1970, and as amended, in
part, the Noise Control Act of 1972.
The EPA was created to permit coordinated and effective governmental action on behalf of the environment. EPA
endeavors to abate and control pollution systematically by proper integration of a variety of research, monitoring, standard
setting, and enforcement activities. As a compliment to its other activities, EPA coordinates and supports research and
antipollution activities by state and local governments, private and public groups, individuals, and educational institutions.
EPA also reinforces efforts among other Federal agencies with respect to the impact of their operations on the
environment. In all, EPA is designed to serve as the public's advocate for a livable environment.
Grove Manufacturing Company fully recognizes and accepts its part to design, test, and place in commerce the latest
"state-of-the art" as regards the protection of the environment and to integrate into its product line sound noise abatement
engineering systems consistent with Federal/State mandates and urges owners to maintain the integrity of such systems
not specifically due to any law but rather to protect the rights and privileges to a healthier environment for all Americans.
