EPA employees told to stop putting poop in hallways

At the EPA, s--t happens. Literally.

Government Executive obtained an email sent by management at a Denver EPA branch, in which Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor begged employees to stop performing inappropriate behavior that included "placing feces in the hallway."

Cantor mentioned "several incidents" that had occurred in the government building. After the incidents, EPA management brought in workplace violence expert John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces were a health and safety risk, in addition to being "very dangerous."

"Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals," Cantor wrote in the email.
