This handbook was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through their Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT) program. EPA created the EMPACT program to promote new and innovative approaches to collecting, managing, and communicating environmental information to the public. Working with communities across the country, the program takes advantage of new technologies to provide community members with timely, accurate, and understandable environmental information they can use to make informed, day-to-day decisions about their lives. EMPACT projects cover a wide range of environmental issues, including water quality, ground-water contamination, smog, ultraviolet radiation, and overall ecosystem quality. Some projects were initiated by EPA, while others were initiated by EMPACT communities themselves through EPA-funded Metro Grants.
