Head to EPA's Enforcement & Compliance History Online (ECHO) database at:
and click on "all data", which will take you to:
On this page, do the following:
--enter the word [ treatment ] in the "Facility Name" box
--select Region 1 from the "EPA Region" pull-down menu (you'll have to
repeat the search for each of the ten EPA regions)
--at the bottom of the form, check the box that says "Include minor facilities"
--click on "Search"
This will take you to a results page that lists (for Region 1) 180+
facilities. At the bottom of the list is a button marked "Download".
Click on this to get a text delimited file that you can then save and
import into a spreadsheet.
Repeat the process for each of the EPA regions, and you'll have your
EPA's databases definitely contain the names and phone numbers of
contact people at the WWTPs, but as I said earlier, this information
is not readily extractable from their online databases.
You may want to submit a Freedom of Information Act request to EPA.
To do so, just fill out the form at the following site:
Select "EPA Headquarters" to receive the request, and spell out the
details of what type of list you want (for example, a national list of
all wastewater treatment plants with plant name, address, contact
name, and telephone number). Make sure to specify that you are
seeking an electronic file, rather than a paper printout of a list.
If you have any problems accessing the information I've described,
just let me know by posting a Request for Clarification, and I'll be
happy to assist you further...and sorry about calling you Nadine!
All the best.
