TOXMAP has added TRI 2002; it now includes reporting years 1987-2002. TRI 2002 contains 93,380 records; TRI 1987-2002 has over 1.3 million records.
TOXMAP facilities maps and associated chemical summaries now include TRI 2002 data, the default file year for TOXMAP releases maps. Previous years can be selected via the "year" tabs on the Releases pages. TOXMAP trends maps also now include releases data from 2002.
At this time, TOXMAP uses reported on-site releases only.
TRI contains information on the annual estimated releases of toxic chemicals to the environment and is based upon data collected by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
