The EnviroMapper tool combines interactive maps and aerial photography to display facility-based information from the Envirofacts Warehouse. There are now six geographically based selection options to help you zoom into areas of interest. Each option essentially does the same thing, offering maps and aerial photos that can be used to locate EPA regulated facilities. However, two options, "By Address" and "By Facility" have the potential to zoom to a point closer to or exactly on your facility.
Coastal Condition This layer is one of the South Atlantic LCC indicators in the estuarine ecosystem. It is an index of coastal condition capturing water quality, sediment quality, and benthic community condition. Reason for Selection This index measures the overall abiotic condition of the system, is well monitored, and is synthesized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) every five years. It integrates measures of water quality, sediment quality, and benthic habitat quality. Input Data -- The EPA Coastal Condition Index (CCI) is a ranking derived from a water quality index, sediment quality index, benthic index, coastal habitat index, and fish tissue contaminants index (US EPA 2012). The coastal habitat...
The Anacostia Watershed lies within the Chesapeake Bay drainage basin, and is one of the most urban watersheds within the basin. According to the Fish and Wildlife Service, the watershed spans over 175 square miles between Maryland and the District of Columbia and is considered by many to be one of the most degraded waterways in the United States. Watts Branch is a tributary stream of the Anacostia River, and flows into the Potomac River which eventually empties into the Chesapeake Bay. In 2010, several partnerships were formed to restore a section of the Watts Branch stream and riparian area. The restoration efforts were focused on a highly polluted 1.8 mile stretch of the stream, running from the border of Prince...
Emissions & Generation Resource Integrated Database - Plants for the Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative
The Great Plains Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GPLCC, http://www.greatplainslcc.org/) is a partnership that provides applied science and decision support tools to assist natural resource managers conserve plants, fish and wildlife in the mid- and short-grass prairie of the southern Great Plains. It is part of a national network of public-private partnerships — known as Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs, http://www.fws.gov/science/shc/lcc.html) — that work collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to leverage resources and share science capacity. The Great Plains LCC identifies science priorities for the region and helps foster science that addresses these priorities to support wildlife...
This map service contains GIS data in Web Mercator from the EPA Office of Water for the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) integrated with reach-related information from the USEPA Reach File Version 3.0-Alpha release (RF3-Alpha). This service also includes hydrographic landmark features in NHD. It is available as a WMS, KML, and REST service as well as the native MapServer service.
