FRS Query Form's User Guide
The Facility Registry Service generally includes such core data elements as name, address, affiliated organizations and contacts, and industrial classifications. Use this query to search for facilities in Envirofacts.
Facility Identification Search Option
Enter the complete or partial facility name or registry id to retrieve all facilities with that name or id. Select the "Containing" option when entering a partial name or id for a better retrieval the first time you access the data. When an "Exact Match" option is specified for a facility name or id, do not specify another option; only one facility will be retrieved.

This option limits the search by causing the query to use the cross reference table. This is a large table, therefore your query will take more time. Use this option only when searching within a county, city, or ZIP Code. Using this option at a state level may cause the query to time out or return a very large data set.
Information can be freely accessed through the use of this query. The complexity of the query is up to the user. Queries that return a large volume of data may terminate prematurely due to system limitations. The constraints established for the enviro user account (the query uses this to connect to the Oracle database) are:
- Each query is limited to 2.5 minutes of Central Processing Unit (CPU) time.
- A single session can be 15 minutes in duration.
- A session may stay idle for 7.5 minutes, at which time it will be terminated.
Develop queries that return small batches of data and terminate the session as soon as the queries have been executed, so that others can access the database.
