Exploring the Toxic Trends Map Application Webinar- August 28th 1pm-2pm EST
The Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) is pleased to announce this webinar under its collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The webinar will highlight the work conducted by our grant recipient, The Huxley Spatial Institute at Western Washington University (WWU).
The Toxic Trends application is an invaluable public tool that allows users to access important industrial chemical information from any internet connected device. The map’s unique visual mapping layout provides an easier method for the public to learn about toxic chemical information and the associated risks within their community.
The Toxic Trends map application visually represents industrial air pollution information to citizens across the United States by mapping the relative risk from air pollution that industrial facilities pose to the human health of their communities and how those risks might change over time. The application utilizes facility air data from the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) database coupled with risk values based on modeled output data from the EPA’s Risk Screening Environmental Indicators (RSEI) model for assessing TRI data.
