    Beach Advisory and Closing Online Notification (BEACON) provides information on water quality at more than 6,000 beaches nationwide.

  • Eco-Health Relationship Browser
    Eco-Health Relationship Browser is a part of the EnviroAtlas and illustrates the scientific evidence for linkages between human health and ecosystem services—benefits supplied by Nature. This interactive tool provides information about several of our nation's major ecosystems, the services they provide, and how those services, or their degradation and loss, may affect people's health. The tool provides an interactive, fun-to-use relationship browser which highlights the relationships and points users to the supporting science literature.

  • EnviroAtlas
    EnviroAtlas allows users to explore the benefits people receive from nature, and understand how various decisions can affect an array of ecological and human health outcomes.

  • Envirofacts
    Envirofacts integrates information from a variety of EPA's environmental databases. Each of these databases contains information about facilities that are required to report activity to a state or federal system. You can retrieve information about hazardous waste, toxic and air releases, Superfund sites, and water discharge permits, plus more.

  • Fish Consumption Advisories
    Provides historical data on fish advisories on a state and local level.

  • MyEnvironment
    With this tool you can find environmental information such as Air, Health, Land, Water, and Ecological Conditions based upon a user's chosen location.

  • NEPAssist
    NEPAssist is a tool that facilitates the environmental review process and project planning in relation to environmental considerations.

  • RadNet
    RadNet has more than 130 radiation air monitors in 50 states. RadNet runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week collecting near-real-time measurements of gamma radiation. Over time, RadNet sample testing and monitoring results reveal the normal background levels of environmental radiation.

  • Report on the Environment (ROE)
    EPA's Report on the Environment; is a comprehensive source of scientific indicators that describe the condition of and trends in the nation’s environment and human health. It compiles in one place, the most reliable indicators currently available to help answer 23 questions that EPA believes are of critical importance to its mission. The 85 ROE indicators provide information about the current status and historical trends in US air, water, land, human health and exposure, ecological systems at the national and, in some cases, regional levels. The updated and revised ROE is fully online (no hard copy reports) featuring new interactive graphics and mapping features, information on  indicator variability and uncertainty, and a systems-based conceptual framework used to show how ROE indicators relate to specific human health or environmental outcomes or conditions that are consistent with the Agency’s mission and goals. 

  • Toxics Release Inventory for Communities
    The Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) is a starting point for communities to learn about toxic chemicals that industrial facilities are using and releasing into the environment, and whether those facilities are doing anything to prevent pollution.
