Where to Find EPA Data
EPA data is found in many places. We recommend you find EPA data by visiting these applications. They are listed in order of broadest data coverage.
- EPA’s Environmental Dataset Gateway hosts the inventory of EPA's Open Data resources. This inventory contains metadata records, contributed by EPA Regions, Program Office and Research Laboratories, that contain links to EPA data resources.
- Use the Envirofacts Multisystem Search to search multiple environmental databases for facility information, including toxic chemical releases, water discharge permit compliance, hazardous waste handling processes, Superfund status and air emission estimates.
- Use EnviroAtlas for geospatial data, easy-to-use tools, and other resources related to ecosystem services, their stressors and human health. You can learn more about all our available geospatial data from the Geospatial Program.

Other EPA Data Topics
The topics below relate to EPA data, but won't necessarily link you to those data.
Central Data Exchange
EPA practices Participatory Science (also known as citizen science), which allows us to engage the public in asking questions, participating in data gathering, and interpreting results.
The EPA Quality Program provides oversight and requirements for how EPA manages the quality of its environmental information.
EPA organizes our registries in the System of Registries. These resources can be used by developers, data scientists, and the public to understand environmental terminology and the data used by the agency.
