EPA, ECOS Host 2008 TRI Conference Feb. 12-14

EPA's Office of Environmental Information and the Environmental Council of the States are hosting the 2008 TRI National Conference. The conference will be held Feb. 12-14 in Arlington, Va. ECOS works with the EPA to organize and conduct the annual event, which seeks to increase interactions between state, tribal, federal, and industry representatives to help improve TRI (Toxics Release Inventory) programs.

The TRI report resulted from the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act of 1986. The TRI program requires industrial facilities to publicly report quantities of toxic chemicals annually released into the air, water, and land. Providing openness in chemical reporting, the TRI report gives Americans public information on chemical releases for their community, so that they can make informed decisions about protecting their environment.

The conference agenda and registration information are available at http://www.ecos.org/section/projects/?id=2571.
