It's less that the data is "outdated" - since the data is real-time and historical (e.g., it details your site contacts in the year you submit the data) - then just plain incorrect, especially as concerns water quality data - which the agency has spent the past few years trying to correct. ECHO is a textbook case of "garbage in, garbage out," and EPA has been known to tap poor data sources at the state level.

I advise my clients to review ECHO annually and make sure they're comfortable with what's being said about them online by the agency.

Regards,

Dave

My experience is that it's a good idea to check your organization's data in these databases to be sure that it is correct. Outdated data lives longer in government databases than one would like...
