The purpose of this Comment is to examine the three congressional acts relating to air, water and noise pollution and their legislative history in an attempt to determine the mandated scope of federal agency compliance with local pollution regulations. In view of the fact that the Clean Air Act provision relating to control of pollution from federal facilities was the first such provision and apparently the prototype of the provisions on the noise and water pollution control acts, major emphasis will be placed on it. It is the author's belief that: (1) the complementary nature of the three acts and the almost identical wording of the provisions contained therein mandate uniform interpretation of the three provisions; and (2) correctly interpreted the three provisions mandate federal agency compliance with state and local procedural, as well as substantive, pollution control requirements.
