Short description: EPA’s Risk-Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) is a screening-level tool that assesses the potential impact of industrial releases from pounds-based, hazard-based, and risk-related perspectives. RSEI uses risk concepts to quickly and easily screen large amounts of data, saving time and resources. RSEI is particularly useful for examining trends to measure change, ranking and prioritizing chemicals and industry sectors for strategic planning, conducting risk-related targeting, supporting community-based projects, and investigating environmental justice issues.
