TURA Program Activities & Accomplishments

TURA Data Extracts

Spreadsheets of raw data taken directly from annual TURA filings by certain Massachusetts companies. A knowledge of MassDEP Form S Instructions and Appendices as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Form R Instructions is required to fully understand this data. The information contained in these spreadsheets originated from a relational database application and is provided in Microsoft Excel format. For reporting years 1990 through 2004, these files were compressed using a "zip" utility. If you need this information in an alternate format, please contact Lynn Cain: 617-292-5711 or lynn.cain@state.ma.us

TURA Information Releases

Data on chemical use, byproduct (or waste) generation, releases to the environment, and other waste management for the most recently available reporting year. This data is normalized for changes in production reported by a Core Group of industries that have been subject to TURA reporting requirements since 1990.
