The EPA Mobile App with Google Maps

myRight-to-Know

The United States Environmental Protection Agency has released a new mobile application that displays nearby facilities that report to the Toxics Release Inventory. It also displays the location of large permit holders in the Air, Water or Hazardous Waste programs that are expected to produce, manage or release TRI-reportable chemicals.

Using the app you can search for any address to view the results from the TRI for that location. The blue markers displayed on the map show facilities that submitted Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) reports for 2008. The grey markers show facilities that did not report to TRI for 2008 but that have other EPA records indicating they may release or manage TRI-reportable chemicals.

The myRTK test version is currently compatible with Firefox and Chrome browsers, and is not currently compatible with Internet Explorer. To access the test version of the myRight-To-Know application, visit m.epa.gov/myrtk from your mobile or desktop device.
