    Rank facilities in UTAH or in TOOELE County by chemical releases or waste generation

    *Note: These rankings are based on chemical releases and transfers reported by industrial facilities to the Toxics Release Inventory, and do not take into account major sources of pollution or toxic chemicals that are not covered by TRI.

    *Note: Some chemicals are associated with more than one health effect, so their release may be counted multiple times in this table. Therefore, it is not appropriate to sum releases sorted by health effect. Total reported releases to air and water are provided in the data summary below.

  • What We Don't Know About Chemical Safety and Harm
  • Air Releases
    6 TRI chemicals released to air in the United States lack the risk assessment values required for safety assessment
    218 TRI chemicals released to air in the United States lack the exposure estimates required for safety assessment
    Water Releases
    5 TRI chems released to water in the United States lack the risk assessment values required for safety assessment
    172 TRI chemicals released to water in the United States lack the exposure estimates required for safety assessment

    *Note: This facility has made a safety claim about its air releases of TRI chemicals. Because the information readily available to the public about these chemicals is not enough by itself to support a claim of safety, Environmental Defense has asked this facility to provide supporting evidence for its claim on Scorecard.
