Local Environmental Information

The main page of the Environmental Protection Agency’s website offers a mapping feature called MyEnvironment (scroll down just a bit and you’ll find it on the left hand side), which allows you to learn quickly a whole range of environmental facts about virtually any location nationwide. Just enter a zip code, an address, a city or county name – say, for example 67060 – and you’ll find a wealth of environmental information, ranging from today’s air quality index, ozone forecast, particulate matter forecast, and ultraviolet index, to superfund and brownfields links, maps of industrial site reporting to the EPA, low birth weight statistics and cancer risk estimates for aerial toxics, streamflow level data, local water conditions, and much more. Here’s a page that explains in detail what’s available and how you can put it to use.
