(09/15/04) The Environmental Protection Agency has sponsored partnerships with industry, academic institutions, environmental groups, and other agencies to launch 13 sector-specific Compliance Assistance Centers. Each EPA-funded Center addresses real world issues in language that is used by the regulated entities. Through Internet websites, telephone assistance lines, fax-back systems and e-mail discussion groups, the Centers aim to help businesses, local governments, and federal facilities understand federal environmental requirements and save money through pollution prevention techniques. Once a year, the Centers survey their users -- even first-time visitors -- on how well they are meeting that goal. The results of the surveys help the Centers provide resources for environmental compliance. Please click on the Center sites at: and take a short survey. Surveys should not take more than three minutes to complete. The Centers are offering incentives to respond to the survey. The Centers' surveys are also accessible at: .
