EPA Launches Interactive Clean Water Act Violations Website
Another exciting transparency tool from the US: interactive disclosure of yearly clean water act violations. According to the EPA's Press Release:
Disclosure is a way of increasing the compliance level of a rule. Water quality may have implications to land values and effluent quality reflects a company's efficiency level. With more stakeholders scrutinizing your company, it is expected that you would be more careful about your waste level. Otherwise, either investors will take action to remove the managers, or, the local citizen will take action for their diminishing property value.
