Factors to consider with TRI data:
TRI can help Tribes:
The two electric utilities on the Navajo Nation Reservation and one metal mine on the Tohono O'odham Nation of Arizona accounted for 78% of the on-site land disposal. One paper facility located on the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe's (Fond du Lac) land reported one-third (33%) of all air releases.
New Tribal Query in Envirofacts
Query EPA’s data by proximity to tribal land
Tools to help users access and analyze the TRI data:
myRTK: for quick snapshot of facilities in your area and information about compliance history, chemicals released and potential health effects.
TRI Explorer: reports of releases, transfers, and waste managed that can be compared across facilities, chemicals, geographic areas, industries (NAICS code) or reporting years.
TRI.NetBuild customized TRI data queries which users can then download, map and analyze results with other data sources.
Geospatial tools (ArcGIS, EPA’s GeoPlatform, other mapping tools)
