I'm working on a project and want to show the boundaries of the EPA NPL sites. I found the polygons for a few EPA Regions (1,5,7,8) but am wondering if anyone knows where to get NPL polygons for other states or regions.

Thank you.

Wow, the EPA needs to centralize all their GIS data downloads.  They have download sites all over the place.

I found region 6 and 9 from this site.   EPA Environmental Dataset Gateway

Guess I'll keep looking around

EDIT: Found a KML for NPL that was current to 2008, it covers the contiguous US.  If you save out only the polygon KML, you can convert it to a shapefile.  http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=5&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CDoQFjAEahU...

Disregard that, it only covered one region, got a bit hasty.

Further EDIT:

while not what you were looking for, this may be of use to you, ATSDR Hazardous Waste Site Polygons (copy/paste)

I haven't examined the data yet, but it could be useful

Hi Ian,

Thanks for the quick reply.  I think the hyperlink was cut off. Can you re-post it?

Thanks.

Tom
