Enviro Scorecard for your Zip Code
Still on the road, but wanted to share a nifty link. At www.bajaweb.net/scorecard you can plug in your zip code and get an entire run-down on environmental issues in your area. Topics covered include Toxic Chemicals, Air, Water, Agriculture, Environmental Justice and Health Hazards. I know you can't see the pic very well, but if you click on it, it will take you directly to the web page.
For example, Phoenix (zip 85021), has five Superfund (groundwater pollution clean-up) sites, but does not have a high lead risk. Look at some of these screens to get the idea.
