Welcome to Envirofacts, a single point of access to select U.S. EPA environmental data. This website provides access to several EPA databases to provide you with information about environmental activities that may affect air, water, and land anywhere in the United States. With Envirofacts, you can learn more about these environmental activities in your area or you can generate maps of environmental information.
Information in Envirofacts is accessible in a variety of ways from our homepage. We suggest that users unfamiliar with Envirofacts begin with Quick Start. This feature allows you to retrieve a sampling of information pertaining to your area by entering a specific ZIP Code, City and State, or County and State. If you want more in-depth information about a particular subject area, you may select from a list of available Topics, which includes Waste, Water, Toxics, Air, Radiation, Land, Other, and Maps. If you are an experienced user, however, you may be interested in our Advanced Capabilities option. This option will allow you to go directly to the Queries, Maps, or Reports feature that interests you.
