Background

The CalEPA Regulated Site Portal is a website that combines data about environmentally regulated sites and facilities in California into a single, searchable database and interactive map. The portal was created to provide a more holistic view of regulated activities statewide. By combining data from a variety of state and federal databases, the portal provides an overview of regulated activities across the spectrum of environmental programs for any given location in California. These activities include hazardous materials and waste, state and federal cleanups, impacted ground and surface waters, and toxic materials. (More)

Data Sources

The portal combines information from the databases listed below. Additional data sources may be added in the future.

  • CERS - The California Environmental Reporting System was developed by CalEPA to support the reporting of information by regulated businesses and Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs) pertaining to hazardous materials and hazardous waste throughout the state.
  • EnviroStor - This system is used by the Department of Toxic Substances Control to track permitting, enforcement and cleanup activities at hazardous waste facilities and sites with known or suspected contamination.
  • GeoTracker - Developed for the State Water Resources Control Board, this database contains information about impacted groundwater sites within the state, such as leaking underground storage tanks, cleanup sites, and permitted facilities such as landfills and operating underground storage tanks facilities.
  • CIWQS - The California Integrated Water Quality System (CIWQS) was developed by the State Water Board to manage permitting, compliance and enforcement activities related to sites which discharge to surface water (or otherwise affect surface water quality) throughout the state.
  • TRI - The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a federal database that contains detailed information on nearly 650 chemicals and chemical categories that over 1,600 industrial and other facilities in the state manage through disposal or other releases, recycling, energy recovery, or treatment. The data are collected from these facilities by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
