Question # 899

899. If a citizen is concerned about emissions from a facility in their neighborhood, what is the best way for them to determine if that facility has ever filed a TRI report?
There are many ways to access TRI data, but one of the easiest ways to search for a facility reporting to TRI in a particular neighborhood is the Envirofacts website. Envirofacts provides access to several EPA databases that contain information about environmental activities that may affect air, water, and land in the United States. Within Envirofacts, the TRI Search allows users to search for facilities by geographical location, either by city and state or by zip code. The results display any facility that has reported from 1987 to present, even though the facility may or may not have submitted TRI data in the most recent reporting year. The last year of data displayed represents the last year TRI data was reported. The TRI Search on the Envirofacts website is available at the following URL: https://www.epa.gov/enviro/tri-search. Additional information about access to analysis of TRI data is available at the following URL: https://www.epa.gov/toxics-release-inventory-tri-program/tri-data-and-tools.
