Community Right-to-Know Project:
Review Hazardous Chemical Releases Reported to US EPA
This is an effort to help people find out what dangerous chemicals have been released into the environment. The facilities that release these chemicals have to report the releases each year to the US EPA. This data is maintained in EPA databases and is available to the general public. Here's the rub - try to get the data out of those databases! This app helps you easily get the information you want.
See chemical releases reported to EPA in eleven states (IA, IL, IN, KY, MI, MO, OH, PA, TN, TX, WI). You can filter by Reporting Year, State, County, City, Facility Name, Chemical Name or NAICS in any combination.
Instantly gain new insights about air, water, land and underground releases by facilities that you are interested in. View on-site release totals, down to how much of a specific chemical has been released.
Data can range from 1987 to 2016, depending on the releases reported from individual facilities. Data for 2017 is just becoming available from EPA. Data for the entire US, including the 2017 reporting year, will be added to this app when new tiers have been established.
This is a full feature preview that is being hosted on the Patreon web service for creators. This app will be expanded as the US EPA adds data to the database.

This is a full feature preview that is being hosted on the Patreon web service for creators. Depending on the interest in this effort, I plan to expand the number of States included as the US EPA adds 2017 release data to its database.
You can use this version of the app (contains data for eleven states, through 2016) for free. New Tiers will be established to access more data and will be available to Patrons only.
