The United States Environmental Protection Agency was established thirty years ago as the country was becoming more aware of our dependence on the natural world. By placing most environmental laws under one agency, the government became more accountable and responsive to the needs of present and future Americans. In the past three decades rivers have become cleaner, skies clearer and our approach to addressing problems more holistic. From the Regional Office in Seattle, the EPA employees are working to build partnerships with the state and local governments of Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington and hundreds of Tribes to continue this progress. The report discusses clean air, clean water, clean land, healthy communities, healthy ecosystems, a healthy planet, and challenges for the next century.
