Dear Erik,

The Department of Ecology received your request November 4, 2015.

Ecology does not maintain a log of all requests. We have a tracking system that generates reports about our requests. Additionally, we did not have a tracking system until February of 2009, therefore, we have no data before February of 2009.

I have placed a report that was exported to Excel responsive to your request on our FTP site at the following link: in the folder entitled: PDTS#32058 Erik Peterson. This document will remain on this site for a two-week period, ending 11/19/15.

This request is now closed. If you have any questions please contact me.
