TRI National Analysis

Map of Facilities in the 2015 TRI National Analysis

This map shows facilities that reported to EPA's Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Program for 2015.

The facilities that report to the TRI Program are primarily from industry sectors involved in manufacturing, metal mining, electric power generation, and hazardous waste treatment; have ten or more employees; and manufacture, process, or otherwise use TRI chemicals in quantities above established reporting thresholds. Federal facilities are also required to report to the TRI Program, most recently by Executive Order 13693.

For more information about facilities in your community that report to the TRI Program, visit the Where You Live section of the National Analysis.

Exploring Demographic Information within the
2015 TRI National Analysis

Almost 59 million people live within one mile of at least one of the many facilities that reported to the TRI Program for 2015. As part of the TRI National Analysis, EPA has developed a Story Map to provide information on community demographics across the country.

The Story Map includes interactive maps showing facility locations and the demographic patterns of the communities around them, particularly the percentage of the population living below the poverty line and the population of minority status, based on U.S. Census data. You can search for your own community to learn more about the facilities that are located in your neighborhood that report to the TRI Program.
