About the Map

Suspected industrial discharges of PFAS

This map shows the locations of 41,828 industrial and municipal sites that are known to produce or use, are suspected of using, or are a suspected source of the toxic fluorinated chemicals known as PFAS. The sites were identified through the Environmental Protection Agency’s Chemical Data Reporting Rule database, the EPA’s Enforcement and Compliance History Online database and Federal Aviation Administration data, plus a survey by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. Locations marked on the map are approximate and were identified using the addresses listed in the data sources, which may contain errors. This map does not purport to show sites of known PFAS discharges but rather sites known or suspected of making, using or releasing PFAS.
