Have you ever wondered about the quality of the air and water in your community or what types of toxins you may be exposed to? Have you wanted to learn if adverse environmental factors were present near a home you are considering purchasing? ESRI reports that the EPA has created an online interface called MyEnvironment. The tool uses geospatial technology to get environmental info out there to the public.
