|EPA announces ECHO (Enforcement and Compliance History Online), a new public access tool for compliance and enforcement information for all major facilities regulated under the Clean Water Act (CWA) , the Clean Air Act (CAA), and/or the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The data provides a snapshot of a facility's environmental track record for the past two years. The data indicates a facility's record of compliance with multimedia environmental regulations by showing the dates and types of inspections, violations, and enforcement actions for a two-year period. ECHO is presently in "pilot"status to allow the regulated community to flag possible data errors and to allow the general public to provide feedback on the design of the site. |
The state has conducted a comprehensive data quality review to ensure the correctness and completeness of the data contained in ECHO as it relates to Major facilities. Should data errors be found in the Echo reports, the user may submit corrections online by clicking the 'Report Error' button. Online data error requests will be routed to the State's data steward for review and, if needed, correction. The user will receive an e-mail from the State concerning the final determination of each request. You may address questions to MDEQ ECHO Data Steward.
