WASHINGTON (April 21)—The Environmental Protection Agency's Enforcement & Compliance History Online database must be changed if it is to provide accurate, meaningful information about the environmental records of industrial facilities, the Rubber Manufacturers Association has told the agency. The information on ECHO often is "woefully outdated" and needs to be placed in context so that it will "be sufficient for the public to determine the environmental significance of any violation listed in the database," Tracey Norberg, RMA vice president-environment & resource recovery, said in a letter to the EPA.
