ECHO Website Adds Air Pollution Data
Back in 2013, The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
launched a new version of its Enforcement and
Compliance History Online (ECHO) website. ECHO provides information on
environmental regulatory compliance and enforcement for approximately 800,000
facilities across the nation. Since the launch of ECHO 2.0, the site has
undergone a number of updates and enhancements, and this month saw the
introduction of ECHO Release 2.4.1. The most salient new feature is the addition
of air pollution data, compiled from the National Emissions Inventory, Toxic
Release Inventory, Greenhouse Gas Reporting Tool, and Acid Rain Program, along
with compliance information for individual facilities. To learn more about this
and other features recently added to ECHO, see this
announcement from EPA Assistant Administrator Cynthia Giles.
