Start working with "U.S. EPA Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) - Safe Drinking Water Act API" right away by using this ready-to-use mock sample. API mocking can greatly speed up your application development by removing all the tedious tasks or issues: API key provisioning, account creation, unplanned downtime, etc.
It also helps reduce your dependency on third-party APIs and improves your integration tests' quality and reliability by accounting for random failures, slow response time, etc.
Enforcement and Compliance History Online (ECHO) is a tool developed and maintained by EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance for public use. ECHO provides integrated compliance and enforcement information for over 1 million regulated facilities nationwide.
SDW Rest Services provides multiple service endpoints, each with specific capabilities, to search and retrieve data on public water systems regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The returned results reflect data drawn from EPA's Federal Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS) database.
The getsystems, getqid, and get_download end points are meant to be used together.
The recommended use scenario for getsystems, getqid, and get_downoad is:
1) Use getsystems to validate passed query parameters, obtain summary statistics and to obtain a queryid (QID). QIDs are time sensitive and will be valid for approximately 30 minutes.
2) Use get_qid, with the returned QID, to paginate through arrays of water system results.
3) Use get_download, with the returned QID, to generate a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file of water system information that meets the QID query criteria.
Use the qcolumns parameter to customize your search results. Use the Metadata service endpoint for a list of available output objects, their Column Ids, and their definitions to help you build your customized output.
