EPA's Envirofact Database and EnviroMapper
A hat tip to beSpacific for calling attention to the EPA recently adding to its Envirofact public database more than 6,300 chemicals and 3,800 chemical facilities regulated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) which provides the EPA with authority to require reporting, record-keeping and testing requirements, and restrictions relating to chemical substances and/or mixtures. TSCA resources here.
Scientific Stuff in Plain English. Also of interest is the EPA's EnviroMapper for Envirofacts, "a single point of access to select U.S. EPA environmental data. This Web site provides access to several EPA databases to provide you with information about environmental activities that may affect air, water, and land anywhere in the United States. With Envirofacts, you can learn more about these environmental activities in your area or you can generate maps of environmental information." Just enter an address, zip, city, county, waterbody, etc." If concerned with the output, comment to this post. I'll try to persuade the brainiac in the family, that would be my blog widow, to comment-back with "scientific stuff" in plain English. [JH]
