@eustatic -- @shannon mentioned Gulf Monitoring Consortium has a ton of work on this -- do you have some links you could share if you have a moment? THANKS!!

Also, @liz or perhaps @devinb or other #edgi people -- is there an EDGI mirror or improvement on the TRI database? Thank you!!!

GitHub lists 7 projects: https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=toxics+release+inventory&type=

But the EPA site seems only to offer JSON for UV index, which i guess means how likely you'll get a sunburn? https://www.epa.gov/enviro/web-services#uvrest

Data.gov shows a REST API which is a bit more helpful, i think:

https://catalog.data.gov/dataset/toxic-release-inventory-tri-8162e/resource/8585d7d4-a2bb-4d22-994e-1a61a852ee1d

Oh, and maybe Skytruth Alerts is a good place to go? But I'm not sure it does historical data:

http://alerts.skytruth.org/

They do have an API: http://alerts.skytruth.org/api.php

But it's not clear to me if these overlap with TRI reports?

Oh, cool -- this page (https://www.epa.gov/enviro/envirofacts-data-service-api) shows this type of query, starting with a zip code prefix:

https://iaspub.epa.gov/enviro/efservice/tri_facility/zip_code/BEGINNING/0290/JSON

...for facilities in zip codes starting with 0290_ for example. That shows 86 facilities.
