Envirofacts Overview

Welcome to Envirofacts, a single point of access to select U.S. EPA environmental data. This website provides access to several EPA databases to provide you with information about environmental activities that may affect air, water, and land anywhere in the United States. With Envirofacts, you can learn more about these environmental activities in your area or you can generate maps of environmental information.

Information in Envirofacts is accessible in a variety of ways from our homepage. We suggest that users unfamiliar with Envirofacts begin with Quick Start. This feature allows you to retrieve a sampling of information pertaining to your area by entering a specific ZIP Code, City and State, or County and State. If you want more in-depth information about a particular subject area, you may select from a list of available Topics, which includes Air, Waste, Facility, Land, Toxic Releases, Compliance, Water, Radiation, and Other.

The Multisystem Search Form allows you to search multiple environmental databases for facility information, including toxic chemical releases, water discharge permit compliance, hazardous waste handling processes, Superfund status, and air emission estimates. For more detailed information about the searches that are available within each Topic, please refer to our About the Data page.
