LOS ANGELES – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launches a new Web site that will provide up-to-date environmental information to residents of southern California.
By visiting: https://www.epa.gov/region09/socal viewers will have easy access to information about environmental issues in southern California. The site features EPA’s work on port diesel emissions, area water quality, local site cleanups, waste recycling, border activities, and tribal projects in Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Santa Barbara counties.
The new site uses interactive maps of southern California to provide local residents with critical environmental information about their own communities and neighborhoods, including current air pollution levels, beach conditions and sun exposure risks.
The site will be useful to teachers and students as an educational tool for researching environmental issues in their communities. It also provides resources for organizations and businesses on how to "green" their operations or join one of EPA's voluntary partnership programs.
