Frequent Questions

As a citizen, I would like to know if the facilities in my neighborhood are in compliance.

Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) is your best option since anyone with access to the internet can use ECHO.

The ECHO ‘Quick Search’ capability can easily give you information about your neighborhood. ECHO provides communities with important enforcement and compliance information about regulated facilities. ECHO allows users to find permit, inspection, violation, enforcement action, and penalty information covering the past three to five 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.

ECHO provides an easily understandable and searchable format, and users can view this data in a comprehensive and organized manner. ECHO allows users to sort and analyze data in many ways, according to their needs. By using ECHO, the public can monitor environmental compliance in communities, corporations can monitor compliance across facilities they own, and investors can more easily factor environmental performance into their decisions.
