Description

The Washington State Department of Ecology has defined a facility/site as an operation at a fixed location that is of interest to the agency because it has an active or potential impact upon the environment.Ecology recognizes that this definition is broad and generic; but the agency has found that such a definition is required in order to encompass all the facilities and sites in Washington that are within the purview of its programs. These programs cover a wide variety of environmental aspects and conditions including air quality, water quality, shorelands, water resources, toxics cleanup, hazardous waste, toxics reduction, and nuclear waste. The definitions of a facility and/or a site vary significantly across these programs, both in practice and law.Examples of facilities/sites include:Operation that pollutes the air or waterSpill cleanup siteHazardous waste management facilityHazardous waste generatorLicensed laboratorySUPERFUND siteFarm which draws water from a wellSolid waste recycling centerFacility/Site Interactions is a point feature service representing the facility/site locations stored in the Facility/Site database. This feature service queries directly the Facility/Site publication database which is updated nightly from the production transactional database.GIS Metadata: http://www.ecy.wa.gov/services/gis/data/environment/facsite.htmFor more information, contact Dan Saul, Washington State Department of Ecology GIS Manager, dan.saul@ecy.wa.gov or 360-407-6419.
