Navigate your organization's Insights

Edited

Encamp's Insights dashboard provides a comprehensive overview of your organization's environmental compliance performance across multiple regulatory programs, including air, water, and waste.

This article will guide you through the the four tabs of the Insights module (OVERVIEW, ECHO, RCRA INFO, and NPDES), to help you understand and interpret the data you see.


Access Insights

To access the Insights page for your organization, click Insights from the left-hand menu.

Note: The Insights feature must be enabled for your organization to access this functionality.


Overview

The Overview tab provides a visualization of all of your organization's compliance data from the ECHO database, including violations, permit types, and compliance history.

Summary Table

  1. Active and Inactive Facilities: Number of facilities that have been marked Active or Inactive in the ECHO database. (Note: This includes only Insights facilities that have been linked to an Encamp facility)

  2. Summary Table: High-level metrics for facilities with each type of activity.

    The Count column shows the total number of all facilities (active or inactive) that operate in the given activity. Example: In the screenshot, 638 facilities have or have had permitted water activities.

    The Percent column shows the total percentage of all facilities (active or inactive) that operate in the given activity. Example: in the screenshot, percent shows 638 facilities divided by the total number of facilities (1,185).

    Total Violations and Significant Violations show the number of facilities where the most recent quarter shows that they are currently in a violation status and/or marked as being in significant non-compliance. (Refer to the Glossary of Terms for additional clarification on these terms)

    The Violation % and Significant Violation % columns show the total percentage of all facilities (active or inactive) that are currently in a violation or significant violation status.

  3. Compare to Industry and Cohort: Compare the high-level metrics for your organization to those for a given industry or to those for a cohort of facilities you create. Read this article for more details and instructions.
