Description

The following data set represent releases of TRI chemicals to the environment in the State of Utah . A "release" of a chemical means that it is emitted to the air or water, placed in some type of land disposal, or transferred off-site for disposal or release. This data shows the industries with the biggest releases of TRI chemicals in the area, the quantities of TRI chemical released over time, and which chemicals are being released in the highest quantities to air, water, land and off-site transfers for disposal or release.

Disclaimer
Users of TRI information should be aware that TRI data reflect releases and other waste management activities of chemicals, not whether (or to what degree) the public has been exposed to those chemicals. Release estimates alone are not sufficient to determine exposure or to calculate potential adverse effects on human health and the environment. TRI data, in conjunction with other information, can be used as a starting point in evaluating exposures that may result from releases and other waste management activities which involve toxic chemicals. The determination of potential risk depends upon many factors, including the toxicity of the chemical, the fate of the chemical, and the amount and duration of human or other exposure to the chemical after it is released.
