Search Results Help - Hazardous Waste

As described in detail on the primary Search Results Help home page, the Search Results page presents results that meet the search criteria specified. ECHO includes hazardous waste handler and compliance and enforcement data. Other data associated with the hazardous waste program are available from RCRAInfo Web. Information and data specific to the Hazardous Waste facility search is described below, including:


Customize the Data Table

ECHO data are initially aggregated at the state, county or ZIP code level when viewing results with the interactive map. The level of aggregation is dynamically scaled based on the number of results returned to maximize the number of points on the map. The following counts are provided:

  • Number of Facilities
  • Facilities with Current Violations
  • Facilities with Significant Violations 
  • Facilities with Violations (3 years)
  • Facilities with Informal Enforcement Actions (5 years)
  • Facilities with Formal Enforcement Actions (5 years)
  • Facilities with On-Site Inspections (5 years)
  • Facilities without On-Site Inspections (5 years)
Once 500 or fewer results are found when viewing results with the interactive map, the data table presents facility-level information.
 
When you choose Data Table view from the search form, ECHO displays 500 table rows at a time and additional results are paginated. In Data Table view, total search results are limited to 100,000 or fewer records. An indication of how many results are returned and which set of results are in view is provided at the bottom of the table. Results are presented in tabular format in the data table (sorted by FRS ID by default) and initially include the following columns of data (click on the links below to jump to the Results Guide for detailed descriptions of each):
 

Several other facility reports are accessible from the Reports column. The following reports may be accessed by clicking the corresponding icon. Note that the types of reports available for specific facilities varies.

Access EPA facility documents. Available documents include: inspection and permit documents, and facility-reported clean air compliance documents (CEDRI).

Results Guide

Key Terms

"Violation," "noncompliance," "significant noncompliance," and "high priority violation" are all terms used by the ECHO website to describe the facility’s status in regard to compliance with the law. In many cases, these terms reflect determinations made by EPA or states when conducting inspections or reviewing facility self-reports. These determinations assist the government in tracking resolution of violations through the enforcement process and do not necessarily represent a final adjudication by a judicial or administrative body. In such cases, these characterizations should be considered alleged violations.

The search results present data from several EPA data sources. Read About the Data for more information on each data source and when the data were last updated in ECHO. See the Known Data Problems page for important notifications about data quality. 

Data fields included in the search results are described below. The results page field name is listed in bold and the data download file field name is listed [within brackets in italics].

Once facility-level data are displayed (Data Table view or 500 or fewer results in Interactive Map view), the facility summary panel becomes visible. Upon clicking in a table row (or on a map pin), the Facility Summary panel will expand (or update) to present a brief overview of the selected facility’s compliance information.

The facility name and street address are displayed at the top of the panel. A miniature map zoomed in on the selected facility is shown below the name and address. Below that map, the following facility data are displayed:

  • Compliance Status
  • Universe
  • Days Since Last On-Site Inspection
  • Quarters with Violation (3 years)
  • Formal Enforcement Actions (5 years)

The Detailed Facility Report for the selected facility can be accessed by clicking the “More Facility Details " link on the bottom right of the panel. The Detailed Facility Report presents a concise enforcement and compliance history for a selected facility.
