User GuideMyProperty's results come from EPA's Facility Registry Service (FRS) which contains information on millions of facilities or sites of interest to EPA. FRS integrates databases like Envirofacts and Cleanups in My Community into one search engine. A complete inventory of the databases can be found on the List of Systems page. The property search on the MyProperty home page searches address data from facilities integrated from over 80 EPA and State databases.
Geography Search Option
When searching using an address, please enter a complete Street Address as well as a City and State or Zip Code.
When using the Geography search, entering a street name is mandatory. For best results, enter the address number as well as the base name of the street. MyProperty will accept variations in addresses, in the above example "NW" can be denoted as both "North West", "Northwest", and "NW" while "Ave" can be denoted as "Ave", "Avenue", or "Ave." Please note that the house number can be composed of both numeric and alphabetic characters such as "221B".
When entering an intersection address, use " and " to separate the two street names. For example, "15th St NW and Pennsylvania Ave". All entries containing the base name will be returned.
City, State, ZIP Code
As a minimum, enter in a city in combination with a two-character state postal abbreviation, or a zip code. A list of the postal abbreviations and the state names is provided below. The ZIP Code entry can be five digits plus extension, or fewer. If you enter the zip code you do not have to enter the city and state.
Geospatial Search Option
Coordinates can be entered for a point by entering in Latitude and Longitude in Decimal Degrees format or by selecting the "Use My Location" button. Please note that the "Use My Location" button is intended for use with mobile devices or with modern browsers. Using the "Use My Location" from a desktop PC will return coordinates based on approximated location of your IP address; the coordinates provided based on your IP address are not within EPA control. The Geospatial Search Option cannot be used simultaneously with the Geography Search Option.
Your search results will be returned based on the address, or geospatial coordinates provided. If any Environmental Interests are identified near the selected location, they will be displayed on the map as well as in the table below the map. A description at the top of the page will indicate the distance of the closest environmental interest to the provided search location.
Clicking on facilities on the map will bring you to the Key EPA Facility/Site Reports. This page provides links to pages where you can gain additional information about the facilities that are near the provided search location.
