Note:

Reporting year (RY) 2013 is the most recent TRI data available. Facilities reporting to TRI were required to submit RY 2013 data to EPA by July 1, 2014. TRI Explorer is using an updated data set (released to the public in October 2014). This dataset includes revisions processed by EPA as of October 2014 for the years 1988 to 2013. Revisions submitted to EPA after this time are not reflected in TRI Explorer reports. TRI data may also be obtained through EPA Envirofacts.

Users of TRI information should be aware that TRI data reflect releases and other waste management activities of chemicals, not whether (or to what degree) the public has been exposed to those chemicals. Release estimates alone are not sufficient to determine exposure or to calculate potential adverse effects on human health and the environment. TRI data, in conjunction with other information, can be used as a starting point in evaluating exposures that may result from releases and other waste management activities which involve toxic chemicals. The determination of potential risk depends upon many factors, including the toxicity of the chemical, the fate of the chemical, and the amount and duration of human or other exposure to the chemical after it is released.

On-site Disposal or Other Releases include Underground Injection to Class I Wells (Section 5.4.1), RCRA Subtitle C Landfills (5.5.1A), Other Landfills (5.5.1B), Fugitive or Non-point Air Emissions (5.1), Stack or Point Air Emissions (5.2), Surface Water Discharges (5.3), Class II-V Wells (5.4.2), Land Treatment/Application Farming (5.5.2), Surface Impoundments (5.5.3) and Other Land Disposal (5.5.4). Off-site Disposal or Other Releases include from Section 6.2 Underground Injection (M71), RCRA Subtitle C Landfills (M65), Other Landfills (M64, M72), Storage Only (M10), Solidification/Stabilization - Metals and Metal Compounds only (M41 or M40), Wastewater Treatment (excluding POTWs) - Metals and Metal Compounds only (M62 or M61), Surface Impoundments (M63), Land Treatment (M73), Other Land Disposal (M79), Other Off-site Management (M90), Transfers to Waste Broker - Disposal (M94, M91), and Unknown (M99) and, from Section 6.1 Transfers to POTWs (metals and metal compounds only).

Off-site disposal or other releases show only net off-site disposal or other releases, that is, off-site disposal or other releases transferred to other TRI facilities reporting such transfers as on-site disposal or other releases are not included to avoid double counting.

Transfers to Recycling are Section 6.2, sum of Solvents/Organics Recovery (M20), Metals Recovery (M24), Other Reuse or Recovery (M26), Acid Regeneration (M28) and Transfer to Waste Broker - Recycling (M93)). Transfers to Energy Recovery are Section 6.2, sum of Energy Recovery (M56) and Transfer to Waste Broker - Energy Recovery (M92)). Transfers to Treatment are Section 6.2, sum of Solidification/Stabilization (M40, except for metals and metal compounds), Incineration/Thermal Treatment (M50), Incineration/Insignificant Fuel Value (M54), Wastewater Treatment (excluding POTWs) (M61, except for metals and metal compounds), Other Waste Treatment (M69) and Transfer to Waste Broker - Waste Treatment (M95)). Transfers to POTWs (non-metals) are Section 6.1 (except metals and metal compounds). Transfers to POTWs (metals and metal compounds) are Section 6.1 (metals and metal compounds only). Other off-site transfers are Section 6.2 sum of amounts with no code or invalid code.
Other transfers off-site to disposal or other releases do not include transfers to POTWS of metals and metal compounds and are Section 6.2, sum of Underground Injection (M71), RCRA Subtitle C Landfills (M65), Other Landfills (M64), Storage Only (M10), Solidification/Stabilization - Metals and Metal Compounds only (M41), Solidification/Stabilization (M40 metals and meta
