Environmental Issues Report (EIR) - Environmental Data Resources
The Environmental Issues Report enables homeowners and home buyers to screen their home or prospective home and its surrounding area for known and suspected environmental concerns. Historically, consumers have not had access to this information that has been widely used in commercial real estate for well over 20 years. The EIR site is also able to connect the user with a local environmental professional to help interpret the rich dataset of 1400 databases and 23 million records. Gas stations and dry cleaners are the most numerous in the databases however there are also 35,000 former illegal drug (meth) labs, millions of landfills and approximately 3500 "Superfund" spill sites. Although many people know of the movie 'Erin Brockovich' or the movie 'A Civil Action' the truth is, there are thousands of cases that are less publicized but equally detrimental.
