The agency also unveiled a new Web-based interactive map which, it says, "allows the public to get detailed information by location about the enforcement actions taken at approximately 4,600 facilities."
Viewers can click on specific facilities to find historical information about specific enforcement actions, such as violations and monetary penalties. In addition, viewers can use the zoom function to find out which facilities are located near water bodies that are listed as "impaired” because they do not meet federal water quality standards.
Not included in the map are the locations of drinking water treatment plants "due to potential security concerns."
