Environment: Updated Data Now Available from EPA: Toxic Release Inventory 2009

Access Database Interface, Search by Zip Code

"EPA's Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program Web Site" The Zip code entry box takes users to TRI Explorer using the last complete dataset (2008 data as opposed to Preliminary 2009)

From an EPA Announcement:

The 2009 TRI Preliminary Dataset is now available! Last year, in the interest of promoting transparency and collaboration, EPA took the unprecedented step of releasing toxic chemical data to the public in mid-August, less than two months after the July 1st reporting deadline and before completing its own data analyses. This year, EPA is making the data available even sooner and is providing the data in downloadable data files, as well as in TRI Explorer (with limited analytical capabilities) and Envirofacts. The preliminary dataset will be updated in August and September as more of the 2009 TRI facility submissions are processed. EPA encourages data users to read the Questions and Answers about the 2009 TRI preliminary dataset to understand the limitations of using and analyzing the data before the dataset is complete.

The preliminary dataset allows communities to find out about releases and transfers of chemicals at the local level. Examples of industries that report to TRI include manufacturing, metal mining, electric utilities, and commercial hazardous waste treatment facilities among others. Facilities must report their data by July 1st of each year.
