Description

Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) is designed to easily provide usable information about inspections, violations, and enforcement by utilizing interactive maps and enhanced trend data. ECHO advances public information by sharing data related to water, air, waste, and drinking water regulations and allows its users a variety of options to better understand the state of their local environment as well as national environmental impacts to public health. The web-based site features information on facilities that are violating the Clean Water Act with tools that compare water quality trends and generate interactive maps that link to detailed state dashboards. ECHO also provides easy access to information about violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act, showing the frequency of violations to drinking water across states, and offers a detailed list of the most serious violators in the nation. ECHO is searchable by location, and the public can also examine information on inspections conducted by both EPA and the state, violations and enforcement actions at facilities in their communities, and the penalties levied in response to violations related to the Clean Air Act and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
