There's been some requests to reduce redundancy and to unify the different tracking systems that are emerging for industrial complexes and potential pollution sites following Hurricane Harvey.

Do you know of datasets or lists being compiled that could be merged or cross-referenced somehow?

Also - if people are interested in helping combine these various data sources, please speak up! Thank you!

Justin, i did see it, but did get an error lately on your map Harvey Ecological hazards

Landfills are importnt to track, especially < a month from now, when nasty new landfills will spring up. we've got to be in communication with Lone Star Sierra Club about that, since i don't know how TCEQ will announce the new landfills.

We at GRN made a similar map for our internal planning, but also for public consumption: We pulled our data from Climate Central's report on EPA data.

Sierra Club has a good map of facilities in TX as well:

for pollution reports, Skytruth has an NRC tracker:

Perhaps we need a matching question for Irma response
