    Rank states, counties, or facilities 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.

  • 2002 TRI Pollution Releases Sorted by Health Effect*
  • Air Releases
    (Pounds from TRI sources)
    Water Releases
    (Pounds from TRI sources)
    Suspected Carcinogens 6
    Suspected Cardiovascular or Blood Toxicants 6
    Suspected Gastrointestinal or Liver Toxicants 6,736
    Suspected Neurotoxicants 6,730
    Suspected Reproductive Toxicants 6,736
    Suspected Respiratory Toxicants 6,736
    Suspected Skin or Sense Organ Toxicants 6,736

    *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.
