Federal Facilities by Industry
The following chart shows the number of federal facilities reporting to TRI by sector for 2019.
For 2019, 441 federal facilities in 38 different types of operations (based on their 6-digit NAICS codes) reported to TRI. Almost two-thirds of these facilities were in the National Security sector, which includes Department of Defense facilities such as Army and Air Force bases. Since all federal facilities are subject to TRI reporting requirements regardless of industry sector, for some sectors, the TRI database only includes data from federal facilities. Most federal facilities are in such sectors, including Military Bases; Correctional Institutions; and Police Protection, such as training sites for Border Patrol stations.
As with non-federal facilities, the type of activities at federal facilities determine the types and quantities of chemical waste managed and reported to TRI. Some of the activities occurring at federal facilities that are captured by TRI reporting are similar to those at non-federal facilities, such as electric utilities. In other cases, federal facilities may report waste managed from specialized activities that do not usually happen at non-federal facilities. For example, all of the federal facilities included under Police Protection and Correctional Institutions only reported lead and lead compounds, likely due to the use of lead ammunition on their firing ranges.
