(01/19/05) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched a new consolidated Spanish Web site as part of its ongoing effort to provide environmental information both in Spanish and English.

The new site compiles EPA’s Spanish language materials on a wide variety of areas from lead poisoning prevention to controlling asthma triggers, recycling to proper management of pesticides. The site was developed through a series of focus groups to respond to the environmental needs and interests of Hispanics.

In addition to environmental health information, the site also offers educational resources for students and teachers who often seek Spanish language learning tools on the environment. The site also provides information about EPA grants, small business opportunities and environmental jobs at EPA.
