(10/13/05) EPA is offering a new tool on its Web site to display test results from floodwater and sediment sampling in Louisiana impacted by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Air monitoring and ambient water data will be added as they become available. The EnviroMapper for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita combines interactive maps and aerial photography to help zoom into sites or areas of interest. Data from other states will be added as it becomes available.
Data from EPA and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality sampling sites can be searched by zip code, address, facility, watershed, or latitude/longitude. In addition, the "By Facility" option provides access to sampling data directly adjacent to or nearby specific manufacturing and chemical facilities. Some views allow you to select or de-select layers of information such as street names or bodies of water. The earliest data available on this Web tool is from Sept. 3, 2005. http://www.epa.gov/enviro/katrina/
