State Comments on Frozen Data - 2016

EPA captures (or "freezes") aggregated state data yearly. These frozen data sets are used in several places on EPA's website, including portions of the Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) website. Frozen data are used in the Comparative Maps and State Dashboards.

Several states have indicated that at the time the data were frozen, that errors existed. States that identified problems with the data were asked to send either a data file with corrected information, or a link to a state website that explained data errors or corrections.

State comments on frozen data are available through the links below, organized by the submission year. Additional data quality information which is not specific to the frozen data is available through the known data problems and State Review Framework Recommendations Tracker.

2016 Comments on Frozen Data (Captured February 2016)
State Media Comments
Alaska CWA
  • Data Metric 1b1 – Permit Limit Rates for Majors –This metric continues to inaccurately show 4 Major permits listed in the “Not Counted” column, bringing our percentages down to 88.9%, while they should be at 100%. After working with and reporting the same known issues to EPA Headquarters, they too acknowledged that this is a continuation from prior years that has yet to be fixed. EPA indicated that as the NPDES e-reporting rule is phased in, the data gaps that keep them from identifying these permits correctly should eventually disappear. Also, they are making efforts to revise the metrics to correct known issues, or at least get in agreement on the best way to deal with them. The issues listed below with these permits will be on this list.
  • AK0037303 –Trident Seafoods Akutan has both limits and parameters, as well as a history of DMR submittals that are identified in Metric 1c1, which are currently at 100% for DMR entry rates and therefore should be removed from this metric.
  • AK0052388 – Peter Pan Seafoods Inc has no limits and parameters coded into ICIS, nor has it ever, as they are required by their permit to submit their data in annual report form only. We received this permit in this condition during Primacy and until we can reissue it, nothing will change regarding their reporting requirements, nor can they under 40 CFR and its Administratively Extended status, therefore should be removed from this metric.
  • AK0052787 – Trident Seafoods Sandpoint is the exact same scenario as described above and should be removed from this metric.
  • AKS052558 – City of Anchorage MS4 is a Major storm water permit with over 700 outfalls that is shared by both the city of Anchorage and Alaska Department of Transportation. They are required under their storm water permit to submit their data in annual report form only. They will never have limits or parameters coded in with DMR submittal requirements and should be removed from this metric.
  • 7c1 – Permit Schedule Violations- This metric is a moving target as our permit universe changes each year with the various reporting requirements and the volume in number of permits issued verses permits terminated annually. This metric continues to include permits that have been terminated in past data verifications, totaling over 400 and should be fixed to accurately reflect active permits only. If not, I hope this can be corrected in the future to include only the permits that were terminated within the target data verification year. Additionally, depending on state budget and the implementation of the e-reporting rule, our hope is that we can reallocate more staff resources to such a large metric universe and continue efforts to have our data as accurate as possible.
Alabama CAA Metric 5e is a flawed metric in that it assumes that all major sources would be required to submit a Title V ACC. However, the distinction of a major source is determined during construction permitting understanding that approximately 12 months AFTER the start of operation the source must submit applications for a Title V permit. The ACC is a requirement of the Title V permit, but not of the construction permit. Therefore, sources that are major, but have not yet been issued their Title V permit, would not be required to submit an ACC. Further, the ACC is to evaluate the prior year. So a source would not be required to submit an ACC until AFTER the first year of the initial issuance of the Title V. In that vein, NORBORD ALABAMA INC (AL0000000101700018) is a major source, as determined by the construction permitting; however, this source has not yet been issued a Title V. Because the source is temporarily closed, it will not be issued a Title V until the operating status changes. HB&G (AL0000000110900003) is listed in the State Metrics as not having had an ACC review completed; however, in ICIS-Air a record for the ACC review (AL000A00000110900003A0016) was created on 11/8/16 to reflect an ACC review completed date of 11/1/2016. I don't understand why this record is not reflected in ECHO.
CWA Metric 1b1-Alabama has permit limits in ICIS for 100% of its Major Facilities. This metric’s logic ignores permit limits on a permit with a status of expired, and it also does not count permit limits for permits that were administratively continued for the entirety of the fiscal year, but happened to be reissued in the new fiscal year before the data freeze. Metric 1c1-Alabama has permit limits in ICIS for 98% of is Non-major Facilities. The 25 permit that do not have limits were terminated during FY16. This metric uses the same logic as Metric 1B1, which accounts for the discrepancy. Metric 10a1-Alabama has a timely action rate of 80%. This metric does not take into consideration all scenarios that are appropriate for addressing a violation (e.g., informal action that returns facility to compliance) or scenarios that do not warrant another formal action (facility is currently under a compliance schedule for a formal action issued prior to the fiscal year). Also specifically noted was AL0023116 which received a formal action in June 2016 which included SNC violations in FYQ1 and FYQ2. This metric should have counted this as a timely action.
Arkansas CWA Incorrect/Deficiency 1a4 Number of Active NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits
  • As of February 10, 2017 The ICIS-NPDES database shows 3571 Active NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits. The number of Active NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits is somewhat dynamic at this time. The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is currently processing the renewal of the Construction Stormwater master general permit. This includes adding many new covered facilities, as well as processing the termination of those who have expired without submitting a renewal NOI.
Incorrect/Deficiency 7a1 Number of Major Facilities with Single Event Violations
  • There are only five (5) Major Facilities in Arkansas with Single Event Violations for federal Fiscal Year 2016. SWEPCO (AR0037842) has had no single event violations since December 2006 and should not be included in this count. Walnut Ridge (AR0046566) has had no single event violations since January 2008 and should not be included in this count. The difference is due to an error in the tables transmitted from the ICIS database to ECHO.
Incorrect/Deficiency 7a2 Number of Non-Major Facilities with Single Event Violations
  • There are only four (4) Non-Major Facilities in Arkansas with Single Event Violations for federal Fiscal Year 2016. Unpermitted Hudson Excavation (ARU001009) has had no single event violations since October 2010, and should not be included in this count. The difference is due to an error in the tables transmitted from the ICIS database to ECHO.
Incorrect/Deficiency 7g1 Non-Major Facilities in Category 2 Noncompliance
  • There are two hundred seventy one (271) Non-Major Facilities in Arkansas in Category 2 Noncompliance for FY 2016. Unpermitted Hudson Excavation (ARU001009) has had no violations since October 2010; should not appear as non-compliant; and should not be included in this count.
Incorrect/Deficiency 8a1 Major Facilities in SNC
  • The Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) has not been delegated enforcement authority for Fort Smith (AR0021750). USEPA Region 6 has enforcement authority for Fort Smith (AR0021750); and should not be included in this count.
Arizona CAA Several of these facilities are not active, and have not been for many years, on ADEQ's CMS list. However, going into ICIS-Air and marking them inactive failed to remove them from the ECHO record.
CWA The following have data flow issues into ICIS: Work is being done to correct the data flow issues.
  1. Resolution Copper Mining - Superior Operations - AZ0020389
  2. Superior Sanitary District - AZ0021199
  3. Arizona Game and Fish - Canyon Creek - AZ0021229
Colorado CAA 1b4 Number of active Title V Facilities is actually 226, not 580 as shown in 1b4. The problem is caused by the Title V air program appearing on synthetic minor sources. We are working with our contractor to fix this. 1c1 & 1c2 - Correct number of FCEs is 1,197. 1h1 - The correct amount of penalties assessed by Colorado is $1,211,737. ICIS-Air does not include SEP penalties. 1i1 - Number of stack tests with passing results is 424. 1j - Correct number of Facilities with a Reviewed TVACC is 167, not 143 as displayed on 1j.
CWA Metric 1b1: Permits CO0021369, CO0037966, CO0048275A are not included as permits with active limits. In FY15 these permits were operating on administratively continued permits. The permits were reissued after the end of the fiscal year and before EPA froze the data for FY15. Metric 1b1 does not count permit limits for permits that were administratively continued for the entirety of the fiscal year, but were reissued in the new fiscal year before the data freeze.
Connecticut RCRA
  • Metric 1a & 5a: The term “active” should be interpreted as a facility that has not notified that they are no longer conducting regulated activity. Therefore Metric 1a2 is most likely not representative of the universe of operating generators. CT DEEP relies on Metric 1a5, the number of generators who have filed a biennial report (BR), as a more representative count of Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) actively operating in the state.
  • Metric 1b1: CT DEEP conducted 1 Non-Financial Record Review (NRR) in addition to the number of sites inspected reported. The additional NRR was performed for RIR000506923. CT DEEP also conducted 5 Financial Record Reviews (FRRs) in addition to the number of sites inspected reported. The additional FRRs were performed for the following: Americas Styrenics LLC (CTD001159730), Clean Harbors Environmental Services Inc (CTD000604488), Dyno Nobel Inc. (CTD058509712), Hamilton Sunstrand Corp (CTD001145341) and Chemtura Naugatuck (CTD001449826). Sites without EPA Identification Numbers that were inspected are not reflected in the number of sites inspected because the US EPA ECHO and RCRAInfo databases do not track inspections that are conducted at sites that do not have EPA Identification Numbers.
  • Metric 1b2: CT DEEP conducted 1 NRR and 5 FRR inspections in addition to the number of inspections reported.
  • Metric 1g: The penalty amount reported excludes the total penalty component offset by the performance of Supplemental Projects.
  • Metric 5a: Two-year inspection coverage for operating TSDFs is a combination of inspections performed by CT DEEP and US EPA Region 1 (8 total).
  • Metrics 5b & 5c: For FY2016 CT DEEP chose the LQG Flex Alternative and deviated from the national inspection goal of inspecting 20% of the LQG universe by inspecting 10% of the traditional LQG universe and inspecting 5% of the Pharmaceutical LQG universe and redirected remaining resources to inspect manifest initiative sites and a mix of other inspection types. CT DEEP performed 3 LQG inspections that were not reported by these metrics because the LQGs were not on the 2013 BR list. Those LQGs included 1 Walgreens store (CTR000513952) and 2 Costco Wholesale stores (CTR000002618 and CT5000000869).
  • Metric 10a: Assessment for potential litigation delayed time to resolution.
CWA
  • Metric 1a1 – The number of Active NPDES Majors with Individual Permits - CT requested EPA to change the designation of Jewitt City, CT0100269, from an NPDES Non-Major to an NPDES Major. (Repeated request from last year.)
  • Metric 1a3 – The number of Active NPDES Non-Majors with Individual permits - See caveat for metric 1a1.
  • Metric 1a4 – The number of Active Non-Majors with General Permits is erroneous. This reflects a fraction of the facilities with NPDES GPs, as CT does not enter all GP registrants into ICIS. Those listed were entered into ICIS because CT DEEP inspected them at some point in the past. CT has the following # of active registrations under its various NPDES General Permits: Industrial Stormwater: 1,516 Construction Stormwater: 510 Non-Contact Cooling Water: 24 Groundwater Remediation Wastewaters: 104 Water Treatment Wastewaters: 60 Municipal Separate Stormwater: 113 Hydrostatic Pressure Testing: 37 Pesticide application: 9
  • Metric 1e1 – Facilities with Informal Actions, and Metric 1e2 - Total Number of Informal Actions at CWA NPDES Facilities: In addition to the Informal Actions listed on the SRF, CT issued Informal Actions to Facilities that have General Permits or were Unpermitted Facilities. These NOVs are not entered into ICIS.
  • Metric 7a2 – Number of Non-Major Facilities with Single Event Violations - In addition to the SEVs listed on the SRF, CT cited Non-Major Facilities and Facilities with General Permits with SEVs. These are not entered into ICIS.
  • Metric 7g1 – Non-Major Facilities in Category 2 Noncompliance - Each of the listed Facilities had at least one violation coded during the year. The veracity of each violation was not verified.
  • Metric 8a1 – Major Facilities in SNC - CT verified the quarters with SNC codes. CT did not verify whether blank quarters should be blank.
Delaware CAA
  • METRIC 1A1: Count should be 54. Honeywell (1000300038) and Invista (1000500002) should not be included.
  • METRIC 1A2: Count should be 74. Missing Allan Myers DE, Inc. Wilmington (1000300933), facility not checked for EDT, will be fixed.
  • METRIC 1A4: Count should be 0. 3D Fabrications (1000300794) Natural Minor now, appears to be accurate in ICIS-Air, so not sure why it's in this metric.BPG Office Partners XIII (1000300826) Natural Minor now, accurate in ICIS-Air, so not sure why it's in this metric. Chemours Edgemoor Plant (1000300010) Facility shutdown 12/15/16 HOWEVER, was a Major facility, not a Natural Minor so not sure why it's in this metric. Edgemoor Materials (1000300040) was a SM, shutdown, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric. Mountaire Farms of Delaware - Millsboro (1000500004) was a Major, now Natural Minor. ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric. Perdue Foods LLC - Georgetown (1000500075) Was Major, now Natural Minor, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric. River Asphalt LLC (1000500224) Was SM, now NM, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric.United Water Delaware Inc - Bellevue (1000300903) was SM now Natural Minor, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric.United Water Delaware Inc - Stanton (1000300457) was SM now Natural Minor, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric. W.L. Gore & Assoc Inc, Paper Mill Road (1000300075) Was SM now Natural Minor, ICIS-Air appears to be accurate so not sure why it's in this metric.
  • METRIC 1A6: Count should be 2. Evraz Claymont Steel (1000300063) was a Major facility up until it closed in FFY2015. Therefore I don't understand why it is showing up on this metric.
  • METRIC 1B1: Count should be 58. Missing Allan Myers DE, Inc. Wilmington (1000300933) This facility was not checked for EDT, this will be corrected and this metric should then include it. Edgemoor Materials (1000300040) Closed Invista (1000500002) Natural Minor Mountaire Farms of Delaware Millsboro (1000500004) Natural Minor Perdue Foods LLC - Georgetown (1000500075) Natural Minor River Asphalt LLC (1000500224) Natural Minor

  • METRIC 1B4: Count should be 54, see caveat for METRIC 1A1.
  • METRIC 1I4: Count should be 0. All of these stack tests listed in this metric are non-MDR (not required to be reported to EPA) stack tests that we report as non-MDR.
  • METRIC 1J: Count should be 54 (appropriately matching our TV/Major universe in other metrics). Due to previous problem with state system unable to report reviews of TVACCs in the manner it is set up in ICIS-Air, this count is off. The state system has been fixed, hence the accounting of 10 of the 54. This should not be a problem in the future.
CWA
  • Metric 7a1: Delaware City Refining Company - DE0000256 did not have any SEVs for FY2016. There is nothing listed in the Delaware Environmental Navigator (our database), ICIS, or ECHO. All others listed are correct.
  • Metric 7a2: SAW, Inc. - DE0000141 did not have an SEV in FY2016. The violations showing in ECHO/ICIS are due to an incorrect parameter code in the permit. Working with EPAR3 staff to get this issue corrected. All others listed are correct.
  • Metric 7g1:
    • DE0000060 (SPI Pharma) - The violations listed for this facility are incorrect. There is incorrect field requirement in the permit in ICIS which is generating DMR Non-Receipt violations.
    • DE0000141 (SAW, Inc.) - The violations listed for this facility are incorrect. There is an incorrect parameter code in the permit in ICIS which is generating DMR Non-Receipt violations.
    • DE0000655 (Chemtrade Solutions, Inc.) - The violations listed for this facility are incorrect. There is an incorrect parameter code in the permit in ICIS which is generating DMR Non-Receipt Violations.
    • DE0050911 (Occidental Chemical Corporation) - pH limit of 6.0-9.0 S.U. was exceeded but did not fall outside of the pH exclusion limitations and is not considered a violation of the permit.
    Working with EPA R3 on all of the above facilities. All others are correct.
Florida RCRA Metric 5b Annual inspection coverage for LQGs:
  1. One hundred and five facilities are reported as being inspected.
  2. Twenty-two of the 393 facilities identified in the BR LQG universe are foreign flagged cruise ships and should not be on this list since FDEP relies on the US Coast Guard to perform routine cruise ship inspections. FDEP recommends that a data flag be created to remove cruise ships from Metric 5b.
  3. Without the cruise ship the annual inspection coverage would be 28.3%.4. Five Mosaic facilities (5) inspections were not conducted as planned in FFY2016. The delay was coordinated with Region 4. Inspection coverage would be 28.7%
Metric 5C Five-year inspection coverage for LQGs:
  1. Thirty-six facilities are reported as not being inspected within a five-year period.
  2. Twenty-two of the thirty-six facilities are foreign flagged cruise ships and should not be on this list since FDEP relies on the US Coast Guard to perform routine cruise ship inspections. FDEP recommends that a data flag be created to remove cruise ships from Metric 5c.
  3. Without the cruise ship the five-year inspection coverage would be 96.2%.
  4. Five Mosaic facilities (5) inspections were not conducted as planned in FFY2016. The delay was coordinated with Region 4. Inspection coverage would be 97.5% Metric 1a1 Number of operating TSDFs. The number of TSDFs reported in RCRAInfo is one short (FLR000070565 Lighting Resources LLC). There should be 25. The BR submittal did not count the facility as a TSDF. The BR data are frozen and cannot be changed.
Metric 1a3 Number of active SQGs:
  1. The number of active SQGs reported do not reflect the most accurate number of active SQGs in Florida. The department is currently working to update the translation scripts to capture generator status for facilities that are no longer SQGs as determined by local governments under the state SQG Assessment, Notification and Verification Program.
Metric 1g Total dollar amount of final penalties:
  1. Total dollar amount of final penalties should be $1,935,033. The cause was identified and corrected. The correct total is currently reflected in RCRAInfo.
Georgia CAA
  • 1a6 Number of Minors Subject to Formal Enforcement
    CAA Permit Facility Name
    GA0000001301300076 WINDER RENEWABLE METHANE, LLC
    GA0000001328500086 CUSTOM BLENDERS GEORGIA, LLC
    Neither of these sources were minor sources - they are not in 1a1 - 1a5 because the facilities are no longer active. This metric is flawed in that it has a four-year look back period for enforcement but only a one-year look back for source classification.
     
  • 1h1 Total Amount of Assessed Penalties & 1h2 Number of Formal Enforcement Actions with an Assessed Penalty. These metrics are missing for the following sources:
    CAA Permit Facility Name Penalties
    GA0000001304500059 Decostar Industries $2,500
    GA0000001306300030 Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport $1,000
    GA0000001306700252 Southern Graphic Systems, Inc $2,000
    GA0000001324700073 Golden State Foods $2,000
    Apparently there was a data glitch that prevented the amounts from populating in the correct area in ICIS-Air to count for this metric. The data was re-submitted and confirmed in ICIS-Air the week of February 6, 2017.
CWA
  • Data Metric 1a4 - Number of Active NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits: Data for Storm Water General Permits (Phase 2 MS4, Industrial and Construction) were in the process of being uploaded at the time of data verification and these data are not complete.
  • Data Metric 7f1 - Non-major Facilities in Category 1 Noncompliance: Most facilities in this category are incorrectly showing missing DMRs; the DMRs were received, but not entered into this database.
Hawaii CWA Due to data flow issues from the State's database to ICIS, some of the data are creating erroneous violations in ICIS. Primarily this deals with metrics 1a4, 1g2, 7a2, 7f1, and 7g1.
Iowa CWA Iowa Currently has a significant number of CWA violations identified in ECHO. However, many of these are not true violations, rather they are the result of challenges with synchronizations of data between Iowa's NPDS permitting system and NPDES-ICIS. Our experience has shown that many of the violations are not truly violations, most notably the compliance schedule violations and DMR Non-Receipt violations. As Iowa works through the system changes necessary to accommodate the eReporting rule implementation, accurate reporting to eliminate the false violations is expected to be addressed.
Idaho RCRA Idaho's RCRA data are correct in RCRAInfo. However, one site (Rocky Mountain Hardware) with a violation determination and enforcement action in federal fiscal year 2017 has been erroneously included in the 2016 data and should not be.
Indiana CAA
  1. Regarding Metric 1a5, Peabody Midwest Mining LLC, which is listed as an HPV, is actually a Federal lead case, not State.
  2. Regarding Metric 1a6, Steel Dynamics – Iron Dynamics Division is classified as a Major source in ICIS-Air, the State is unsure why this source is listed under this metric. Additionally, it is IDEM’s interpretation that if an enforcement case is closed (resolved) prior to the Fiscal Year under observation, the source should not be listed for that year, but should only be listed for the year(s) that the case was active. Based on the MDR, there is no requirement to “close” non-HPV/FRV cases in the Database of Record (ICIS). Of the 24 sources listed, only Phillips Patterns & Castings, Teledyne Portland Forge, C&C Iron, and American Renolit Corp should be listed in Metric 1a6.
  3. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) strives to ensure that CAA Compliance and Enforcement data posted to ECHO is timely and accurate. IDEM is constantly working with the EPA Region 5 and OECA to make sure the information that makes its way to ECHO is accurate and up-to-date. Timely entry of all compliance and enforcement data into the ICIS-Air database is not always feasible or possible based on IDEM’s current business practices, the development and gathering of evidence, the review an analysis of the data, and the quality assurance of data before it is uploaded into ICIS-Air. IDEM will continue to work with EPA to ensure that CAA Compliance and Enforcement data are timely and accurate.
Kansas CAA Discovered an error in CAA metric 1h1 where enforcement action penalties are multiplied by the number of facilities linked to the enforcement action. We have updated three enforcement actions affecting 15 facilities to proportionally split the total penalty to hopefully reflect the correct total.
Kentucky CAA Metro continues to makes improvements to streamline the permitting and compliance program. Some of these changes have resulted in sources changing category and dropping below SM80 thresholds during the CMS year, which results in shifting numbers throughout the year.

Kentucky has reviewed the FFY2016 data. The data has been verified with the following caveats:
  • Metric 1a3 – Number of minor sources subject to NESHAP Part 61: Kentucky does not currently report data on non-major sources to ICIS-Air.
  • Metric 1a4 – Number of Active CMS Minors: Kentucky does not currently report data on non-major sources to ICIS-Air.
  • Metric 1a6 – Number of Minors Subject to Formal Enforcement: The source pulled for this metric is actually a major source.
  • Metric 1b1 – Number of Active NSPS 40 CFR Part 60 Facilities: Data errors. (a) ECHO pulled 21-073-00085 (New Capital Boiler Plant) as a major source. It is identified as a minor source in ICIS-Air and TEMPO; (b) The facility 21-049-00139 (U.S. Smokeless Tobacco) was erroneously created in ICIS-Air. This number needs to be deleted. It was replaced with 21-047-00139. The data for 21-047-00139 is correct in ICIS-Air and TEMPO.
  • Metric 1b3 – Number of Active 40 CFR part 61 Facilities: The facility 21-049-00139 (U.S. Smokeless Tobacco) does not exist and needs to be deleted from ICIS-Air.
  • Metrics 1i1 through 1i6: Kentucky’s stack test results are under-reported. Problems with the identification of relevant data points have resulted in a failure of the automation to transfer data from TEMPO to ICIS-Air. The problem is complex and will not be corrected prior to the February 10, 2017, date for freezing the FFY2016 data. The Kentucky Division for Air Quality can provide the correct data upon request.
  • Metric 1j1 – Number of Facilities with a Reviewed TVACC: Kentucky has 227 Title V facilities. ECHO shows more than 100 synthetic minor facilities as TVACC facilities. There appears to be a data issue where the TVACC is not separating from other majors, so ECHO interprets them as TVACC. This will not be corrected before the FYY2016 data are frozen.
Louisiana CAA There should not be any EPA lead facilities; Region will investigate reclassifying this facility. The APO and AOC for Aeropres (06-2016-3397 and 06-2016-3398, respectively) are not included in the list of enforcement actions and have been entered in ICIS. This would bring the number of enforcement actions for Louisiana to 12, penalty orders to 9, and the number of facilities with enforcement actions to 10. $32,500 should be added to the penalty order amount. For Cornerstone Chemical, the enforcement identifiers for the APO and ACO are reversed, although they are entered correctly in ICIS.
Data in Metrics 1k1, 1k2, and 1k3 (EPA lead cases) not confirmed to be correct. More research is needed to enter addressing/resolving data as determined to be applicable.
CWA 7f1 – Number of non-major facilities in Category 1 non-compliance is erroneously elevated due to the implementation of electronic discharge monitoring report system (NetDMR). Where limits are coded for untracked non-major facilities and NetDMR is not immediately used, non-receipt DMR violations are generated for DMRs that may have been received through standard paper submission and are not entered into ICIS.
Massachusetts CAA Users of this data should be aware that the Massachusetts submits all enforcement actions to ICIS-Air however, the data verification metrics only count the cases that are related to the State's Compliance Monitoring Plan which therefore understates the state's enforcement activity. Please contact the state if you wish further detail on air program enforcement. Further, the number of active Title V sources and the number of Title V Annual Compliance Certifications reviewed are not equal because each year the state or EPA may identify new Title V sources but have not yet issued Title V permits that require filing of the Annual Certification.
Maryland CWA Formal penalty enforcement actions for unauthorized sanitary sewer overflows cannot be entered into ICIS or are entered into ICIS but do not show up in ECHO. The metrics submitted for the number of formal enforcement actions and total penalties does not include all of the enforcement
Maine CWA Maine Department of Environmental Protection submits the following caveats for FY16:
  • 1e1: There are 27 State Facilities with Informal Actions.
  • 1e2: There are 27 State Informal Actions at CWA NPDES Facilities.
  • 1f1: There are 4 State Facilities with Formal Actions.
  • 1f2: There are 3 State Formal Actions at CWA NPDES Facilities.
  • 1g1: There are 4 State Enforcement Actions with Penalties.
  • 1g2: Total State Penalties Assessed is $183,600.
  • 2a1: There was 1 State Formal Enforcement Action, taken against major facilities, with Enforcement Violation Type codes entered.
  • 7f1: Non-Major Facilities in Category 1 Non-Compliance: ME0022314 – Gulf Oil (South Portland), ICIS does not show any violations for FY16. There was nothing in either NetDMR or EFIS to indicate a violation. DMRs were submitted on time, and there were no limit violations.

Michigan CAA In general, the data in the US EPA’s FY16 report is consistent with data in the Michigan Air Compliance and Enforcement System (MACES) database except for the following:
  • Metrics 1a1, 1a2: Active 'major' and 'synthetic minor' facilities represented in the data metric may included those facilities that were later identified as 'minor' during FY16.
  • Metric 1a4: There were no actual CMS minor sources in FY16. The state count should be zero.
  • Metric 1a5: There were no minor source HPV cases in Michigan in FY16. The state count should be zero.
  • Metric 1j: The number of Title V Annual Compliance Certifications (TVACC) reviewed in FY16 and identified in ICIS-Air is actually 451 (out of 494 TVACC received).
Minnesota CAA MPCA is flowing data to ICIS. Most of MPCA's data and the data in ICIS are the same. In some cases there are duplicates because of when we were manually entering data. We have corrected most of them. When ECHO refreshes, the data in the national database shall be correct. Some of Minnesota data that are associated with CM&E are not going to be public until the cases are closed.
RCRA MPCA corrected a tiny error and resubmitted.
CWA The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has made all reasonable effort to verify and correct the data presented in the ECHO State Review Framework environment. This has been done by ensuring that the data contained in the respective EPA program systems, ICIS-NPDES, RCRAInfo and AFS are in agreement with the TEMPO data system maintained by the MPCA as implementer of these programs for the State of Minnesota. Where discrepancies still exist, they are often beyond the control of the MPCA because they are related to the procedures by which the EPA ECHO database aggregates and assesses the data stored in the stand-alone program systems. The MPCA is unable to correct or influence any errors that arise in this process, which is wholly within the control of the EPA. For complete and current information on regulated parties in Minnesota, the MPCA suggests that data be accessed through our ‘What’s in my Neighborhood’ website.
Missouri CAA Missouri Department of Natural Resources called EPA Region 7 because we were having issues accessing the ECHO data verification. Missouri Department of Natural Resources reviewed all the FY 2016 MO data number. EPA region 7 submitted the data verification on behalf on Missouri Department of Natural Resources on February 10, 2017.
CWA There were significant errors between what was in the ECHO database and what is in our Missouri Clean Water Information System (MoCWIS). Department staff have done their best to provide accurate information but a significant amount of work is still to be accomplished. Missouri continues to have batching issues when sending information from MoCWIS to ICIS and will keep working with our IT department and the ICIS and ECHO Help Desks to resolve these issues.

Missouri continues to have batching issues when sending information from the Missouri Clean Water Information System (MoCWIS) to ICIS and will keep working with our IT department and the ICIS and ECHO Help Desks to resolve these issues.

  • 1a3 – NC count for this metric is 1235. NC count includes 1 permit not found in ICIS that was active during a portion of the FFY. ICIS count includes 2 permit numbers that are not legitimate within BIMS. Net adjustment of ICIS number matches BIMS count.
  • 1a4 – NC count for this metric is 5024. ICIS count contains 1 permit not included in NC list. NC count includes 17 permits not in ICIS, primarily due to data errors resulting in rejections during uploads. Adjusting for these differences, NC and ICIS totals agree.
  • 1e1 – NC count for this metric is 486. NC facility count included a facility with NOV issued for GW program violations. Apart from that, the counts match.
  • 1e2 – NC count for this metric is 1040. NC count includes one NOV issued for GW program violations (GW condition associated with NPDES permit) that is not found in ICIS.
  • 1f2 – NC count for this metric is 288. Difference is due to ICIS including one case (PC-2015-0031) that was assessed (and eventually withdrawn and replaced) during FFY 2015, but later had an incorrect date uploaded from the BIMS record. The date has been corrected from BIMS and will be uploaded to ICIS. Because the case was withdrawn, the dollar value associated with the case was $0.00.
  • 7f1 – NC count for this metric is 241. The state's data system does not classify violations as Category I or 2, or as SNC. As a result, the state does not have an automated way to compare its data with EPA's results. State count reflects NC's attempt to apply Category 1 criteria to verified violations data within its BIMS database for FFY 2016.
  • 7g1 – NC count for this metric is 219. The state's data system does not classify violations as Category I or 2, or as SNC. As a result, the state does not have an automated way to compare its data with EPA's results. State count reflects NC's attempt to apply Category 2 criteria to verified violations data within its BIMS database for FFY 2016.
  • 8a1 – NC count for this metric is 8. The state's data system does not classify violations as Category I or 2, or as SNC. As a result, the state does not have an automated way to compare its data with EPA's results. State count reflects NC's attempt to apply SNC criteria to verified violations data within its BIMS database for FFY 2016. Differences between counts deal primarily with data issues that remain to be resolved between the two systems, and not actual instances of limit or reporting noncompliance. A number of data incompatibilities have been discovered during the implementation of electronic reporting, with some resulting in data deficiencies affecting BIMS and its uploads of data to ICIS. NC continues to work to resolve existing issues and to ensure the upload of reliable data to ICIS.
North Carolina data indicate the following permitted facilities that appear on the SRF list were not in significant noncompliance during federal fiscal year 2016:
CWA Permit Facility Name

Nebraska RCRA The number of inspections (2 categories) were flagged as the number of inspections should be 31 and then 32 and hopefully these will updated with a refresh of ECHO prior to the data being frozen.
New Mexico CAA Verifying EPA data for NM only. Currently ICIS contains 138 Active Major Sources. ECHO indicates 154. Currently ICIS contains 177 Active Minor (SM80) Sources. ECHO indicates 214.
Nevada CWA NV0023825 – Inspection inputted this week before data refreshed. Not counted in current metrics.
New York RCRA NYSDEC does not use the federal generator status field in RCRAInfo to track the RCRA hazardous waste generation status of a site (ie LQG, SQG) and this field is inaccurate for NY sites. We use an internal database of manifest and Hazardous Waste Report data of HW shipments and generation instead. NY also does not use the active site field in RCRAInfo. This results in the calculation of certain RCRA State Review Framework Metric #s being inaccurate: 1.a.2., 1.a.3., and 1.a.4., about # of sites in each generator category; and 5.b., c., and d., about inspection coverage. Any other calculations using these numbers are also inaccurate. The percent of NY LQGs and SQGs inspected, or inspection coverage, is greater than calculated in the metrics. This also results in the EPA ECHO site search, Dashboard, Comparative Maps, and Envirofacts public web pages not displaying the generator status of NY sites correctly. The metric numbers are based on current universe counts for LQGs and SQGs, but since these universes change on a daily basis, some of the LQG and SQG inspections conducted are not credited in EPAs SRF reports because the site moved out of the universe, and their generator status field in RCRAInfo was not revised. EPA R2 and NYSDEC have agreed that DEC will target inspections at long-term LQGs, since a very large percentage of our LQGs are an LQG for a year or less. Inspecting sites that do not generate hazardous waste on an ongoing basis is difficult. For metric 5a, Two-year inspection coverage for operating TSDFs, the Combined or All metric results should be used, because EPA R2 has requested that they inspect federal owned NY TSDFs. For metric 8a, SNC ID rate, EPA OECA changed its calculation, did not email states about it, and did not follow the Enforcement Response Policy in their new calculation of it. (There are other inspections besides CEI and FCI that produce SNC violators that are not counted. There is also a timing issue for sites that have inspections and SNC determinations in different fiscal years.) EPA HQ has acknowledged this and de-emphasized the use of this metric. NY conducts inspections at facilities that do not have EPA ID#s and are not required to notify EPA nor NYSDEC of their hazardous waste activities (i.e. federal CESQGs, and non-regulated facilities) nor get an EPA ID #. As a result, not all inspection and enforcement activities are captured in the database, nor reflected in EPAs metrics. EPAs metrics understate NYs full range of hazardous waste compliance, inspection, and enforcement efforts. Almost all data was entered in RCRAInfo before EPAs deadline. Data are accurate as much as possible.
CAA New York State Department of Environmental Conservation added caveats to all data the was in error whether NYSDEC was able to correct it or not. (Almost all was correctable) - NYSDEC noticed that the Violation Resolve code from AFS (VR code) Did not transfer over to ICIS from many HPV cases that have been closed. Some have been resolved for over a decade.

RCRA Ohio EPA’s hazardous waste program exceeded the large quantity generator (LQG) inspection baseline goal of 20%. In agreement with U.S. EPA’s Region 5, Ohio EPA’s hazardous waste program used the 2013 BR LQG baseline for FFY16 inspection planning, instead of the 2015 BR LQG baseline. In FFY 2016, Ohio EPA inspected 174 LQG’s, exceeding Ohio EPA’s commitment of 20% of the LQG universe.

Also, Ohio EPA has pointed out two concerns regarding ECHO data metrics calculations to U.S.EPA regarding for determining LQG coverage in the future. The first concern is due to the significant number of pharmacies that filed a 2013 Biennial Report (BR) and stated they would continue to be a LQG, Ohio’s LQG baseline jumped by approximately 200 LQGs. This is a national problem that will continue unless the proposed changes in the Pharmaceutical rule are adopted. In the latest agreement with U.S. EPA, Ohio EPA negotiated an alternate Compliance Monitoring Strategy with Region 5 for FFY16 in regard to the inspection of pharmacy LQGs but OECA’s data metrics will not take that into account.

The second concern is with the number of active LQGs. Currently, the number of active LQGs is approximately twice the number of BR LQGs. State and federal regulations do not require that a facility re-notify to update Ohio EPA of their current regulated activities. Facilities may go out of business or change their waste generation rate and neglect to inform the state of these changes. Therefore the term “active LQGs” refers to facilities that have not notified Ohio EPA that they are no longer regulated. Based on experience and data mining results, Ohio EPA believes the count of BR filers is much closer to the true number of active LQGs.
CAA Recently, it was discovered that Ohio EPA's data management system had been reporting the date the test results were received and not the actual test date. As a result, some tests are included in this data that occurred prior to the start of FFY 2016. This has been corrected effective with the most recent upload to ICIS Air on 2/10/17.
Oklahoma CWA Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality Water Quality Division’s Federal Fiscal Year 2016 (10/01/2015-09/30/2016) State Review Framework The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) Water Quality Division has completed their data metric review of the CWA data on the State Review Framework (SRF) for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2016. The following caveats and revision in metric values need to be added to ODEQ-Water Quality Division’s FFY2016 SRF:
  1. Due to program commitments & manpower limitations, ODEQ does not code into EPA’s ICIS-NPDES Production database the General & Minor facilities not listed as Minor 92-500's enforcement actions (metrics 1e1, 1e2, 1f1, 1f2, & 2a1), penalties(metrics 1g1 & 1g2), inspection coverage non-majors (5b1), compliance schedules(metric 7b1), permit schedules(metric 7c1), or single-event violations(metric 7a2).
  2. Stormwater facility data (metric 1a4) is not maintained in ICIS-NPDES Production, but in ODEQ’s in-house database.
  3. Metrics 1e1(facilities with informal actions), 1e2(total number of informal actions at CWA NPDES Facilities), 1f1 (facilities with formal actions), 1f2 (total number of formal actions at CWA facilities), 1g1 (number of enforcement actions with penalties), 1g2 (total penalties assessed), 7b1(number of facilities with compliance schedule violation), & 7c1(number of facilities with a permit schedule violation) reflect the Major & Minor 92-500 facility's data only.
  4. The Metric Data listed in the table below is reflective of the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division Data. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry (ODAFF) is the delegated authority for the Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) program and ODAFF will report their revised values separately from ODEQ-Water Quality Division.
  5. ODEQ has revised their Compliance Monitoring Strategy with EPA to no longer do 100 % CEI Inspections on Major facilities to 90%. The remaining 10% CEI inspections are performed on Minor facilities. Major and Minor 92-500 CEI inspections are coded into ICIS-NPDES and Minor CEI inspections are maintained in an in-house database.
  6. Metric 1a4 Number of Active Non-Majors with General Permits revised value is 355. OK0077777 and OK0066666 are not discharge permits. They are total retention systems which were entered into ICIS-NPDES because they accept Industrial user's wastewater and the Industrial User permit requires the entry of a Receiving POTW ID (ICIS required data element).
  7. Metric 1a4 Number of Active Non-Majors with General Permits revised value is 4102. Individual (Major & Minor), MS4 Phase II, Categorical/Industrial User, & General Discharge permit, Facility, and DMR data are coded into ICIS-NPDES. Stormwater-Construction & Stormwater- Industrial permits are maintained in the ODEQ's state database. During this period, there were 1620 Stormwater- Industrial and 2320 Stormwater-Construction permits. ODEQ-WQD has permitted 119 General Discharge permits and 43 MS4 permits. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry (ODAFF) is delegated to permit the general CAFO (OKG01) permits on the list.
  8. Metric 1e1 Facilities with Informal Actions is revised to 102. Major and Minor 92-500 facilities are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. Our state database indicates 18 Minor, 73 Major, 6 Stormwater, 1 General NPDES Discharge, 3 State, and 1 General Total Retention facilities were given an informal enforcement action. ODAFF has 8 facilities with informal actions out of the 93 shown. The rest of the facilities are regulated by ODEQ-WQD.
  9. Metric 1e2 Total Number of Informal Actions at CWA NPDES Facilities is revised to 107. Major and Minor 92-500 are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. On the list of Informal actions, 8 actions were issued by ODAFF. A total of 18 Minor,77 Major,6 Stormwater, 2 General NPDES Discharge, 3 State, and 1 General Total Retention informal enforcement actions were issued during FFY2016.
  10. Metric 1f1 Facilities with Formal Actions is revised to 184. Major and Minor 92-500 facilities are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. A total of 90 Minor, 27 Major, 39 Stormwater, 9 General NPDES Discharge, 6 Satellite, 1 Industrial User, 6 State, 3 General Total Retention, and 3 Unpermitted facilities received Formal enforcement actions during FFY2016.
  11. Metric 1f2 Total Number of Formal Actions at CWA NPDES Facilities is revised to 228. Major and Minor 92-500 facilities are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. A total of 119 Minor, 40 Major, 41 Stormwater, 9 General NPDES Discharge, 1 Industrial User, 6 State, 6Satellite, 3 General Total Retention, and 3 Unpermitted Formal enforcement actions were issued during FFY2016.
  12. Metric 1g1 Number of Enforcement Actions with penalties is revised to 32. Major and Minor 92-500 facilities are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. A total of 14 Minor, 6 Major, 9 Stormwater, and 3 General NPDES Discharge enforcement actions had penalties.
  13. Metric 1g2 Total Penalties Assessed is revised to $399,873.44. Major and Minor 92-500 facilities are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database. Penalties assessed for Majors during FFY2016 was $123,395.94, Minors $176,837.50, Stormwater $51, 390.00, and General NPDES Discharge $48, 250.00.
  14. Metric 5a1 Inspection coverage-NPDES Majors is revised to 155. A total of 83 CEIs and 72 Routine inspections were permed during FFY2016. Major and Minor 92-500 CEIs are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database.
  15. Metric 5b1 Inspection Coverage-NPDES Non-Majors is revised to 300. A total of 265 Minor Routine and 13 CEI inspections were performed during FFY2016. In addition, 16 Industrial User and 6 Satellite were inspected. Major and Minor 92-500 CEIs are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database.
  16. Metric 5b2 Inspection Coverage-NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits is revised to 1179. A total of 1005 Stormwater –Construction, 99 Stormwater-Industrial, and 75 General NPDES Discharge facilities were inspected. Major and Minor 92-500 CEIs are only coded into ICIS-NPDES. All other information is maintained in a state database.
CAA Data in Metrics 1k1 and 1k2 (EPA lead cases) not confirmed to be correct. More research is needed to enter addressing/resolving data as determined to be applicable.
Oregon CWA Data are accurate according to state data except classifications of seven major MS4 sources listed in the nonmajor individual permit list in addition to one error as noted with flag (Metric 1a3). Oregon DEQ verified state data. Oregon ICIS data steward verified and submitted data verification report.
Pennsylvania CAA Some changes have been made after February 10, 2017.
Puerto Rico CAA Some information pulled by the SRF is not accurate in some instances since pull data from previous fiscal year or data from current fiscal year is mission. However, the information in ICIS-AIR is correct to my best knowledge.
Rhode Island RCRA RIDEM identified deficiencies with certain data metrics and inserted comments in order to provide complete data for each element. Corrections were made in RCRA Info to address the discrepancies. As noted for several years the data select logic for LQG inspection coverage is limited by the use of BR data. This results in several LQG inspections completed by the State not being included in the calculation of LQG inspection coverage. For FY 2016 RIDEM completed a total of 20 inspections of LQG facilities but was only given credit for 14 inspections. The result is a finding that RIDEM inspected less than 20% of its known LQG universe. In contrast based on the data available RIDEM inspected 20 of 103 registered LQGs equal to 19.4% of its LQG universe.
South Carolina CAA Metrics 1a3, 1a4, 1a5, 1a6, 1b2, 1b4, 1c1, 1c2, 1d1, 1d2, 1e1, 1e2, 1f1, 1f2, 1g1, 1g2, 1h1, 1h2, 1j, 1k1, 1k2, and 1k3 were verified by SC DHEC. Resubmitting as there were few updates and adjustments. No further submittals should be required to update our data verification as we have stopped our uploads to ICIS-Air until 2/13/17. To our knowledge we have no further data from FFY 2016 that needs to be added to the SC DHEC database and uploaded to ICIS-Air/ECHO. We shut off our uploads as we have a few programming errors that are clearing the stack test observed by State check boxes and putting case files as EPA for the lead agency instead of the State. Our IT staff is currently working on fixing the issues mentioned.
South Dakota RCRA Metrics 1a3 and 1a4 could not be specifically verified. State (and federal) HW rules do not currently require SQGs to re-notify on a periodic basis. The state updates SQG information following inspections and subsequent notification by the generator. CESQG operations are not required to notify.

  7. Metric 7c1 – Permit SD0027987 should not be counted. This was fixed and should be removed from the count.
Tennessee CWA The data appears to be substantially correct. However, there are always discrepancies between databases. While a large portion of the data for 2016 was manually entered into ICIS, Tennessee implemented batch processes in the latter part of 2016 to comply with the e-reporting rule and eliminate the need for manual data entry. Through the new batch process Tennessee has been able to upload a large amount of data but there may still be data discrepancies as the batch process is new and still evolving.

CAA The facilities showing EPA Lead in metrics 1a-1b appear to actually be under the State's purview. Region 6 will continue to investigate these facilities to determine whether they should be made inactive or need to be assigned a State programmatic ID. Seven enforcement actions which have been entered in ICIS for FY2016 do not appear in the breakout; five are APOs (06-2016-9999, 06-2016-3379, 06-2016-3316, 06-2016-3363, and 06-2016-3420), and two ACOs (06-2016-3317 and 06-2016-3380). Therefore, the count should be 41 for number of formal enforcement actions (1g1). The additional enforcement actions noted for 1g1 correspond to 5 facilities, bringing the facility count to 32 (1g2). Five additional penalties (06-2016-9999, 06-2016-3379, 06-2016-3316, 06-2016-3420, and 06-2016-3363), present in ICIS but not included in 1h1, should be included in the total. Adding $148,500 brings the total for 1h1 to $916,311. 1h2 should be 26.There are two facilities for which the Enforcement Identifier and Action Type combination is different in the breakout than in ICIS. For Huntsman Port Neches, the identifies 06-2016-3346 should be the APO and 06-2016-3347 the ACO. Similarly, for Sherman Gas Plant, 06-2016-3385 is the APO and 06-2016-3386 the ACO. Three Headquarters actions are reported and these have not been verified for accuracy. Toni Allen will comment on the HPVs separately.

Data Caveats: Data in Metrics 1k1, 1k2 and 1k3 (EPA lead cases) not confirmed to be correct. More research is needed to enter addressing/resolving data as determined to be applicable.

TCEQ Records indicate there were 1,416 active Title V facilities in FFY16. TCEQ is developing a process to correctly indicate permit status in ICIS Air and ECHO.
  • 1c1 – Number of Facilities with an FCE (Facility Count): TCEQ has an approved alternative CMS that allows for the inspection of sites at a different frequency than the standard CMS. TCEQ met the approved alternative CMS by conducting FCEs at 691 facilities during FY16. Due to the constraints of EPA’s database, ICIS-Air, it is not possible at this time to accurately represent the number of facilities that received an FCE during the review period.
  • 1c2 – Number of FCEs (Activity Count): TCEQ has an approved alternative CMS that allows for the inspection of sites at a different frequency than the standard CMS. TCEQ met the approved alternative CMS by conducting 712 FCEs during FY16. Due to the constraints of EPA’s database, ICIS-Air, it is not possible at this time to accurately represent the number of FCEs conducted during the review period.

Virginia RCRA Metric 1a2 caveat: As of 02/07/17, EPA count is 596. VA-DEQ counts 589 Active LQGs. The 7 facilities that should be subtracted from the EPA count were not LQG until after 10/1/16 (end of FFY16). ID#'s are: VAD003112323, VAR000000661, VAR000001255, VAR000521906, VAR000522078, VAR000522128, & VAR000522193. The data in RCRAInfo for this metric appears to be correct.
CWA 1a4 – Number of Active NPDES Non-Majors with General Permits: Virginia does not upload General Permit info into ICIS. Permits listed are limited to the facilities with federal inspections; they are only a fraction of the VPDES General Permit universe.
Washington RCRA A $444,000 penalty was issued to Total Reclaim Inc., WAD009482803 on 8/31/2016. The penalty is under appeal. Until the appeal process is complete, we cannot enter a Final Monetary Penalty (FMP), and so it is not included in metrics 1G and 1H.
Wisconsin CAA Data in the state database do not confirm all of the NSPS, NESHAP and MACT subparts listed in ICIS. In the state database those data are still under development and are being compiled over time. All data in the state system are in ICIS.
CWA Metrics 1a2 and 1a4: General Permit data are not uploaded from state database to ICIS-NPDES at this time. Number of majors with general permits is approximately 50; an accurate number of non-majors with general permits is not available at this time. Metric 1b3: Manual overrides used to resolve compliance status due to delays in data uploads from state database to ICIS-NPDES resolve data discrepancies and may not necessarily indicate actual facility non-compliance. Metrics 1e1, 1e2, 1f1, 1f2: Enforcement actions considered by the state as formal actions are indicated as informal actions in ICIS-NPDES (Notices of Violation, Enforcement Conferences, Referrals to state DOJ). Metrics 1g1 and 1g2: No penalties were assessed during FFY16 to individually-permitted facilities, however, court judgments totaling $7515.50 were assessed for septage license holders in FFY16. Metrics7b1 and 7c1: Any compliance schedule or permit schedule violations are indicated by Single Event Violations in ICIS-NPDES. Compliance schedule and permit schedule data are not uploaded from state database to ICIS-NPDES at this time. Metrics 7f1: Number unknown as state database does not categorize noncompliance into Categories 1 and 2. Also, effluent data are not uploaded from state database to ICIS-NPDES at this time and non-compliance may be indicated through the entry of Single Event Violations and enforcement actions into ICIS-NPDES.
West Virginia CWA METRIC 1b1:WV0000108 - KINCAID ENTERPRISES – Facility is closed, but has ongoing legal issues. WV0028088 - WESTON CITY OF- This permit expired for a single month in FY16 before the new permit became effective. WV0116238 - LONGVIEW POWER, LLC - MEGAWATT COAL FIRED POWER PLANT - This is a zero-discharge facility, therefore there are no limits associated with this permit.

The following data caveats apply:
  • 1e1 and 1e2 – WV does not currently enter informal actions into the ICIS database
  • 7a1 and 7a2 – Number of all Facilities w/SEV = 124 (Data Verification Metric reflects Major & Minor only)
  • 1f1 and 1f2 – Enforcement action data not included in the above Metrics. Facility/Permit information for the following is absent in ICIS. Therefore, not included in the Metrics above.
    • Order #8475 – WVG412555 HINKLE, Lawrence (HAU)
    • Order #8535 – SWF-5808/WV0109215 Allied Waste Sycamore Landfill
