ECHO allows users to find permit, inspection, violation, enforcement action, and penalty information covering the past two years. The site includes facilities regulated as Clean Air Act stationary sources, Clean Water Act direct dischargers, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act hazardous waste generators/handlers. The data in ECHO are updated monthly.
This map, developed and maintained by EPA, shows the locations of federal air and water enforcement actions in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
Does Your Facility Have Any Air Emission Sources?
A sub-system of Aerometric Information Retrieval System (AIRS). AFS contains compliance data on air pollution point sources regulated by the U.S. EPA and/or state and local air regulatory agencies. This data is available in ECHO.
This system presents annual summaries of air pollution data from two EPA databases:
  • AQS (Air Quality System) database provides air monitoring data - ambient concentrations of criteria and hazardous air pollutants at monitoring sites, primarily in cities and towns.
  • NEI (National Emission Inventory) database provides estimates of annual emissions of criteria and hazardous air pollutants from all types of sources.
The site which is designed to make emissions data for six common pollutants easy to find and understand. Users can look at overall emissions, emissions by type of industry, or emissions by largest polluter.
Search the Air Quality Index and find ozone maps to learn more about air quality and air pollution.
eGRID is a comprehensive air emissions database of electric power plants in the United States, including emissions data on nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and mercury. The new edition of eGRID now also provides emissions data on two greenhouse gases, methane and nitrous oxide.

Does Your Facility Generate Hazardous Waste?
This is a database is designed to enable users to locate documents, including publications and other outreach materials, that cover a wide range of RCRA issues and topics.
Does Your Facility Have Any Wastewater Permits?
View the status of each State's NPDES programs.
A national computerized management information system that automates entry, updating, and retrieval of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) data and tracks permit issuance, permit limits and monitoring data, and other data pertaining to facilities regulated under NPDES.
What Spills Have Been Reported For my Facility?
The National Response Center (NRC) is the sole federal point of contact for reporting oil and chemical spills. In addition to gathering and distributing spill data for Federal On-Scene Coordinators, the NRC serves as the communications and operations center for the National Response Team, which is chaired by EPA. The NRC has implemented an on-line query system that makes oil and chemical spill data available via the World Wide Web.
This system provides fast and easy access to the TRI data to help communities identify facilities and chemical releases that warrant further study and analysis.
A free program you can use to find out about the reactivity of substances or mixtures of substances (reactivity is the tendency of substances to undergo chemical change). It includes:
  • a database of reactivity information for more than 6,000 common hazardous chemicals,
  • a way for you to virtually "mix" chemicals--like the chemicals in a derailed tankcars --to find out what dangers could arise from accidental mixing.
The discharge monitoring report pollutant loading tool brings together millions of records and allows for easy searching and mapping of water pollution by local area, watershed, company, industry sector and pollutant. Searches can show "top 10" lists to help users easily identify facilities and industries that are discharging the most pollution and impacted waterbodies.
Does Your Facility Treat Drinking Water?
The Safe Drinking Water Act requires states to report drinking water information periodically to EPA. This information is maintained in a federal database, the SDWIS Fed Data Warehouse. Included is basic information about each public water system, including: the system's name; ID number; city or county served; number of people served; type of system (residential, transient, non-transient); whether the system operates year-round or seasonally; and characteristics of the system's source(s) of water. SDWIS also include violation information and enforcement information including actions states or EPA have taken to ensure that a public water system returns to compliance if it is in violation of a drinking water regulation.
Multi-media Information About My Facility
This system pulls data from the many separate media systems and integrates the data to produce multimedia reports. Multimedia reports can be produced for particular facilities or for types of activities. Data are available at the facility level and allow users to view information about the nature of violations that occurred and to rank facilities for inspection or enforcement priority. The IDEA Web Search is currently divided by media which displays a separate search interface for Water/CWA (data from PCS), Air/CAA (data from AFS), RCRA (data from RCRAInfo) and Multimedia (data from AFS, PCS, RCRAInfo, and NCDB).
This tool is designed to allow the user to search for either a list of facilities or an individual facility owned and operated by agencies, bureaus and departments of the U.S. Government that are regulated under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Clean Air Act (CAA), and the Clean Water Act (CWA). FACTS You can view individual facility data via the Detailed Facility Report. You may specify values for one or more of the featured criteria listed on the home page of this tool. The criteria are broken into several categories and include: Facility Characteristics, Geographic Criteria, and Compliance/Enforcement History.
