About the event
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for providing easy-to-access and current data regarding all pollution sites within the nation. The issue is that data is often presented in tools that may be difficult to understand or navigate.
Until now! Our friends at The Center of Health, Environment and Justice are hosting a Training Call that will be dedicated to clearly instructing YOU on how to use the EPA’s EJScreen and ECHO Database tools.
By way of background, the EJScreen is an in-depth mapping system that can present visualized data on an area’s types of pollution, amount of hazardous waste sites, level of chronic illness, etc.
Meanwhile, the ECHO database presents information specific to facilities deemed as in need of enforcement by the EPA. It tracks a facility’s permit history, emissions or waste history, indictments or infractions, etc.
Both tools are vital instruments that laypeople and seasoned activists alike can use to learn more about the environmental status and health of their communities.
Join CHEJ on noon TUESDAY, July 26 to learn more about how to apply the EJScreen and ECHO Databases for you and your organization’s goals.
