    WA GHG Reporting Multi-Year Dataset | Last Updated 2018-12-18T19:45:20.000Z

    This dataset contains data reported to Ecology as of December 15, 2018. The reported emissions are preliminary and have not been fully verified by Ecology. This information is subject to change. Certain large facilities and transportation fuel suppliers are required to report their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to Ecology beginning with the 2012 emissions year. Owners or operators of the following are required to report: • Facilities that emit at least 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) of greenhouse gases per year in Washington. • Suppliers of liquid motor vehicle fuel, special fuel, or aircraft fuel that supply products equivalent to at least 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year in Washington. Sources are grouped by sectors. Most sectors focus on each facility’s onsite emissions. The transportation fuel supplier sector describes emissions associated with the complete combustion or oxidation of fuels supplied by transportation fuel suppliers under the Washington Department of Licensing Fuel Tax Program. This dataset does not include all of Washington’s emissions. See the Washington State Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory ( for statewide emissions totals. Emissions are in units of metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents using AR4 global warming potentials as specified in WAC 173-441.

    2015 Greenhouse Gas Report- Data | Last Updated 2017-05-09T21:49:37.000Z

    The map contains greenhouse gas (GHG) data reported to Ecology as of April 24, 2017. The reported emissions are preliminary and have not been fully verified by Ecology. This information is subject to change. Except where noted, emissions are reported in metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). CO2e is a useful measure for comparing the emissions from various greenhouse gases based upon their global warming potentials. Organizations that have emissions spread throughout the state instead of at a single location, such as petroleum product producers/importers and natural gas distributors, are not included in this map. See the complete report to view emissions for all Washington organizations that emit at least 10,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. For more information see the complete 2012-2015 Washington Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Report.

    This dataset includes weekly counts of laboratory-confirmed influenza (flu) cases, by county and influenza type, going back to the 2009-10 season. The primary goal of this dataset is to provide users timely information about local influenza activity throughout the current influenza season. Although each influenza season is unique, historical data is also provided for trend comparison. Cases are included that meet the New York State Department of Health’s (NYSDOH) standardized case definition, i.e., a positive result on any of the following influenza laboratory tests: • Rapid Influenza Diagnostic Tests (RIDT) • Immunofluorescence assays (DFA and IFA) • Rapid Molecular Assays • Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) • Other Nucleic Acid Amplification tests • Viral Culture Please see the overview document for more details about NYSDOH’s influenza case definition. Cases reported during the CDC-defined influenza surveillance season (week 40-week 20 of the next calendar year; October through mid-May) are included. For more information see:
