Frequent Questions

I am in the process of buying a home and have been informed that a hazardous waste facility was previously located close to the property. Is there anywhere I can find out more information?

The Envirofacts Data Warehouse is a single point of access to several EPA databases.  Individuals can search databases online for information on facilities across the Untied States collected from regulatory programs such as RCRA, EPCRA, Superfund, CWA, and CAA.  The RCRAInfo query on Envirofacts will provide limited information on hazardous waste facilities in your area.

To obtain information about a facility's compliance record, individuals can contact the implementing agency where the facility is located.  A list of state solid and hazardous waste web pages can be found at: http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/wyl/stateprograms.htm
