TRI Community Engagement Pilot Projects

Between 2012 and 2014, we worked with four communities to test out new approaches to help residents access, use, and understand TRI data. Our goal was to empower community members to work more effectively with local government and industry officials to achieve more environmentally and economically sustainable outcomes.

North Birmingham, Alabama
EPA developed “snapshots” of TRI data for each of the pilot communities.
