Website Known Issues

This page describes known issues related to the ECHO website itself. For data quality problems, please see the Known Data Problems page.


  • Some formatting problems remain in Internet Explorer 8 - IE8 issues will not be addressed. Later versions of Internet Explorer will continue to be supported.
  • Facility search performance will be further optimized. If experiencing problems with slow facility searching or searches that won't load, please send information about the search ran, Internet browser, date, and time of day to ECHO Support
  • The ECHO Interactive Map results view may display clusters from adjacent states due to imprecise geographic data. Geographic coordinates are approximated in ECHO if facilities do not have location information. These facilities are indicated by the Facilities with estimated latitude/longitude marker icon.

Facility Search Page

All Data

  • Search options that are under development have been disabled:
    • Federal Facility in ICIS-Air, ICIS-NPDES, RCRA, ICIS FE&C, or TRI


  • Searching on multiple watersheds may return 0 results if the HUC code lengths differ between the watersheds.

Search Results

  • In the future, when a user clicks “Generate Report,” the report will open in a new browser window.

  • The number of current HPV/SNC/SV by statute counts the number of facilities in current HPV/SNC/SV; therefore, the count may be lower than the number of violations displayed in the Facility Violation Information table, when a facility has more than one violation
