The Compliance Status search offers flexibility in finding facilities with particular types of violations. Program system-generated statuses are categorized
in the "basic" view and listed individually in the "advanced" view. To switch between the two views, click the "View More/Less Options" toggle above the
search form. Users may search on more than one compliance status. To search on multiple compliance statuses, select one value at a time from the dropdown
Missouri's CWA data problem is related to Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs) that are reported on time by regulated facilities but are not transferring properly into the program data system (ICIS-NPDES), causing those facilities to appear to have not reported.
Nebraska's CWA data problem is related to facilities appearing in ECHO as noncompliant for failing to submit expected DMRs, which may or may not be the case. The state agency is working with EPA to resolve this issue.
North Carolina's CWA data problem is related to the incomplete upload of DMR data from the state’s data management system to ICIS-NPDES, causing facilities that have satisfied permit reporting requirements to be depicted in ICIS and ECHO as having incomplete or deficient monitoring and reporting.
Pennsylvania's CWA data problem is related to discharge monitoring and compliance data that is not correctly transferring into EPA’s program data system (ICIS-NPDES). Therefore, some facilities may be incorrectly flagged as non-compliant in ECHO reports.
Vermont’s CWA data problem is related to the incomplete upload of Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR) data from the state’s Wastewater Inventory data management system to EPA's ICIS-NPDES system, causing facilities that have satisfied permit reporting requirements to be depicted in ICIS and ECHO as having incomplete, deficient or in some instances no monitoring and reporting data.
Washington's CWA data problem is related to a small number of facilities appearing in ECHO as noncompliant for failing to submit expected DMRs, which may or may not be the case. Users should verify these data with Washington Ecology via the PARIS permit database prior to using it for any intended purpose.
West Virginia's CWA data problem is related to data flow errors causing some facilities to be flagged inaccurately as Significant/Reportable Noncompliers (SNC or RNC) in the national program system, ICIS-NPDES. Users should verify these data with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection prior to using it for any intended purpose.
Wisconsin's CWA data problem is related to issues affecting the upload of data to the national program system ICIS-NPDES. Discharge Monitoring Report and facility compliance status data displayed on ECHO may not be accurate. Specifically, facilities may appear to be in noncompliance for failing to submit required discharge monitoring reports, which may or may not be the case. Users are encouraged to contact the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to verify the compliance status of a facility prior to taking action based upon the data obtained from ECHO.
Drinking water data displayed on ECHO are not real-time data. Violation and enforcement data are reported quarterly to the data system of record no later than the quarter following the quarter in which the events occur. Water systems, states and EPA use this additional quarter to verify that the data they are reporting are accurate and complete. Some states have more recent data available on their websites. Questions about current drinking water quality in your community can be answered by your local public water system.

U.S. EPA Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) data included in the ECHO Industrial Stormwater Facility Search only includes data from Notices of Intent (NOIs), No Exposure Certifications (NOEs), and Annual Reports submitted electronically through the legacy data system before March 31, 2018. EPA is working toward also providing access to reports submitted after March 31, 2018, via ECHO. ECHO data related to benchmark limits remains current. Search recent MSGP NOIs and NOEs.
ECHO's Industrial Stormwater Universe
• NPDES ID submitted Industrial Stormwater Notice of Intent (NOI), No Exposure Certification (NOE), or Annual Report electronically before March 31, 2018,
• NPDES ID has an Industrial Stormwater permit component,

• NPDES ID has an Industrial Stormwater formal or informal enforcement action.
Biosolids are nutrient-rich organic materials resulting from the treatment of domestic sewage in a treatment facility. When treated and processed, these residuals can be recycled and applied as fertilizer to improve and maintain productive soils and stimulate plant growth. For more information about biosolids, please visit: https://www.epa.gov/biosolids.
ECHO's Biosolids Universe
The ECHO Biosolids Annual Report search is limited to only the NPDES IDs that submitted annual reports, which does not represent the entire biosolids universe.
For a list of NPDES Master General Permits, please see the Data Downloads page.
Select a value for either Facility Type or Owner/Operator. Selecting a value from one of these criteria will reset the other to “No Restrictions.”

ECHO only includes data from Annual Reports submitted electronically through the legacy data system before March 31, 2018. EPA is working toward also providing access to reports submitted after March 31, 2018, via ECHO. Search for Annual Reports under the U.S. EPA Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) and certain state general permits submitted on or after April 1, 2018, to the National NPDES eReporting Tool (NeT).
Linked search includes Annual Reports under the U.S. EPA Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) and certain state general permits submitted on or after April 1, 2018, to the National NPDES eReporting Tool (NeT).
Linked search includes Notices of Intent (NOIs) and No Exposure Certifications (NOEs) under the U.S. EPA Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) and certain state general permits submitted on or after April 1, 2018, to the National NPDES eReporting Tool (NeT).
Using a medium resolution National Hydrology Plus (NHDPlus) Dataset supplied by the USGS, EPA mapped (reach indexed) locations from both ICIS-NPDES effluent discharge locations and SDWIS drinking water intakes to the nearest water feature within the NHDPlus. Using software developed by EPA’s Office of Water, all NPDES Permits that have an effluent discharge location less than 15 miles above a drinking water intake are identified, along with the actual Drinking Water System identifiers (PWSIDs) with intakes that are within the 15 mile range.
Pollutant criteria information can be used to further refine a subset of facilities. Note, however, that the corresponding enforcement and compliance data presented are applicable to the
facility as a whole and are not necessarily related to the pollutant(s) selected.
This option selects facilities with an 80th or higher percentile of one or more of the environmental justice (EJ) indexes of EJScreen, EPA's
screening tool for EJ concerns. EPA uses these indexes to identify geographic areas that may warrant further consideration or analysis for potential EJ concerns. Note that use of this filter
does not designate an area as an "EJ community" or "EJ facility." EJScreen provides screening level indicators, not a determination of the existence or absence of EJ concerns. For more
information, see the EJScreen home page.
This option selects whether national percentiles or state percentiles are used when determining if a facility has one or more of the environmental justice (EJ) indexes of EJScreen
at or above the 80th percentile. The default is national percentiles.
This option selects whether the EJ indexes percentiles of a facility are calculated based on a facility’s census block group or 1-mile maximum. The default is census
Violations reported on the Biosolids Annual Report are not updated with the weekly data refresh and may not be
representative of a facility's recently submitted or updated report.
Hydrologic Unit Codes (HUCs) are 2- to 12-digit hierarchical units that delineate surface water resources within a geographic area.
To identify an appropriate HUC near you, see Locate Your Watershed
To search, enter a code or watershed name, respectively, to view and select the HUCs matching your term from the dropdown.
