What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the total net pounds of reported PBT (Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals) released.
Why this is important: 
Persistent, Bioaccumulative, and Toxic Chemicals, such as lead and mercury, can cause harmful effects to the environment and humans alike. However, these data only reflect releases and other waste management activities of chemicals, not whether (or to what degree) the public has been exposed to those chemicals.
Technical Note:  The trend is a comparison between the most recent and previous measurement periods. Confidence intervals were not taken into account in determining the direction of the trend.
The displayed value may not reflect the most recent revisions submitted by reporting facilities; consult the source for the most current estimates.
