There are a number of sections in each part. Each section has one or more entries. Each entry
has a title, a Web address and a short description of the material. In general, the entries are
organized from tools that are more generally applicable and/or multi-media to entries that have
more limited applicability and/or discuss a single media (air, water, waste, etc.) . We have tried
to keep information about a single media together within a section. We hope that the Guide will
help you find the information you need quickly and easily.
Since the Resource Guide was developed to help you navigate EPA’s Web site, most of the
material can be found on our Web site. However, in order to include some particularly useful
information, we did include some material from other federal sources or from sources that we
have partnered with to produce the referenced material.
While the material varies in its level of difficulty, most items were written to be
understandable by the general public and has no special notes. The more technical documents,
data sources or computer models are marked for technical audiences and listed together after the
more general material.
When you first come to the Guide on-line, you will see it in outline form. If you want to
read the information in a section, click on the section title and the material in that section will
appear. You can also choose to look at the whole Guide all at once and you can print a copy of
the entire Guide or of any one section. In addition you can use the keyword search feature to find
all listings that relate to one of our listed key words.
The Guide will be updated regularly with new material added and outdated material
deleted. We will do our best to ensure that Web addresses work and are up to date. However,
due to the constantly changing nature of the Web we can not ensure that every address will work.
We apologize in advance for any difficulty that may cause. If you have any problems, comments
or questions with the Guide, the CARE Web site includes a place for you to submit them to us.
We hope you find the Guide useful and we wish you the best of luck in your community
