Scorecard: Get the Facts on Local Pollution
http://www.scorecard.org/index.tcl


Scorecard provides environmental maps with a pollution locator to search by area, for the following subjects: criteria air pollutants, hazardous air pollutants, lead hazards, lead contamination, animal waste from factory farms, toxic releases from industrial facilities, the Clean Water Act, watershed indicators, and setting environmental priorities. There are sections for chemical profile searches, pollution rankings, health effects (discussing the toxicity of various chemicals), and regulatory controls. There are also forums about community pollution, agricultural pollution, chemicals in consumer products, and the health effects of toxic chemicals.
