ECHO Enforcement Case Search Enhanced

EPA’s public criminal case information has been integrated into the Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) website’s EPA Enforcement Case Search.  While public information about criminal enforcement has been available on EPA’s website, it was separate from the civil case data available through ECHO.  This significant enhancement allows ECHO users to access all public EPA case data in one place without needing to know whether enforcement actions were civil or criminal in nature.  Users can now enter a geographic region of interest on the Case Search form and receive a map and a list of all public EPA cases that meet their criteria.

Also, additional columns of data are available to add via the “Customize Columns” feature on the search results page: Date Final Order Lodged, Date Enforcement Action Closed, Enforcement Outcome, and Cost Recovery Awarded. Please contact ECHO if you have comments or questions.
