Democratizing Data: Environmental Enforcement Watch’s Report Cards for Congressional Oversight of the EPA

This report used tools developed by EDGI’s Environmental Enforcement Watch to analyze trends in compliance and enforcement in select congressional districts and states. The analysis found increases in violations under the Trump administration in many of the areas studied, as well as long-term problems with non-compliance. The report also found serious problems with the reporting, collection, maintenance, and access to enforcement and compliance data.
