Final web usage analytics for FY18 illustrate that all of ECHO’s most popular features have increased in number of page views from FY17. These include the Detailed Facility Report and the facility searches (up 2% from last year), the Water Pollutant Loading Tool (up 9% from last year), and the EPA Enforcement Case Search (up 17% from last year). The decrease in overall number of ECHO page views between FY17 and FY18 was due to a change in measurement methodology resulting from the integration of the Water Pollutant Loading Tool into ECHO and retirement of the old platform.
