To improve public health and the environment, the EPA collects information about facilities or sites subject to environmental regulation. The EPA Geospatial Data Access Project provides a downloadable files of these facilities or sites in the following formats; extensible markup language (XML) file, keyhole markup language (KML) file, ESRI Shapefile and ESRI Feature Class.

  • EPA Region - Provides EPA Regional coverages of a subset of the facilities within FRS. Data files are in KML format only.
  • Single - A single State level CSV file for all FRS facilities. Each state zip file contains a single file of key facility-level information including facility name and address, geospatial information, affiliated EPA and State programs, and facility industry classifications (SIC and NAICS codes and descriptions).
  • Combined - A State level collection of CSV files for all FRS facilities containing individual facility name and address, geospatial, facility interests, organizations, industrial classifications (SIC and NAICS), alternative names, contacts, and mailing address files.
