One Useful Environmental Database
Here’s a data-packed site that provides handy information on environmental conditions of sites of interest.
Real-estate brokers, attorneys and investors can glide through it fast to identify items of interest.
It is managed by the SWRCB, State of California Water Resources Control Board, a sub-agency of Cal-EPA: http://www.waterboards.ca.gov/
SWRCB operates the GeoTracker database: http://geotracker.waterboards.ca.gov
GeoTracker tracks regulatory data about:
- Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) Cleanup Sites
- Other Water Board Cleanup Sites
- Land Disposal Sites
- Military Sites
- Permitted Underground Storage Tank (UST) Facilities
GeoTracker contains data from all of California. This makes it an important resource to both regulators and the public.

Call me any time to assist your navigation. You will find this maze to be friendly and simple to navigate once you’ve tried it two or three times.
GeoTracker demonstrates how regulatory personnel, responsible parties, and all stakeholders can efficiently access the same data and an identical set of analytical tools. The readily accessible database results in less duplication of effort and improved communication between stakeholders.
