Metrics Pilot Project

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description The Final OECA Metrics Grant Report was finalized and sent to EPA Region 2 in January 2004. The results show that the Agency's workshops and compliance manuals were reported as extremely useful by the customers and that they often stimulated them to consider and implement a significant number of environmental management improvement projects.

The Agency tried to compare changes at facilities that underwent the Multimedia Pollution Prevention (M2P2) process versus facilities that did not undergo the M2P2 through the data in the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) and Biennial Reporting System (BRS). However, there is significant uncertainty as to the magnitude of the M2P2 Program's impact because the Agency was unable to determine the extent to which other oversight programs, e.g., the Clean Air Act, Hazardous Waste Reduction Program, and DEC and EPA enforcement, might also have contributed to these changes.
