New Feature in EPA's ECHO
A new feature in the ECHO Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) Pollutant Loading Tool will provide easier access and analysis of toxic pollutant releases to sewage treatment facilities, as reported under EPA's Toxics Release Inventory (TRI). This new feature provide better integration with TRI indirect release data (i.e., TRI releases to sewage treatment facilities) with Clean Water Act DMR data. The main way to access these data is though the Loading Tool "EZ Search" and "Advanced Search" as well as the "Indirect Industrial Discharger Report" on the "Everyday Search" tab. The Loading Tool now makes it easy to see identify facilities that release TRI chemicals to sewage treatment plants. The ECHO DMR Pollutant Loading Tool is updated weekly with DMR data from industrial facilities and sewage treatment plants. States authorized to administer the CWA permit program collect these monitoring data and share these data with EPA's national database (ICIS-NPDES). ECHO provides integrated compliance and enforcement information for about 800,000 regulated facilities nationwide.
