Environmental data

Many different kinds of environmental data exist. Some provide concentrations of chemicals or other substances and in the land, water, or air that people might be exposed to; the data are used to evaluate exposures to these chemicals. Other data provide information about events or facilities that might cause possible environmental exposures but do not provide enough detail to evaluate exposures. These data are often used to make decisions or set priorities for future environmental health data gathering or regulatory activities.

Data and information for this site are still being developed and added.  We welcome your comments and feedback.
