[This message was posted by Stella Bourassa, StellaVB@aol.com] In reading this posting (she is refering to a 9/19/00 posting from the CPEO Brownfields listserve which is copied below), I am wondering: Could this new application be implemented by local governments regarding FUDS/BRAC sites? Due to having the environmental damage around long after those of us have 'passed on', a need to use IC/LUC's for an extended period of time, this would seem a viable solution for keeping track of these contaminated and dangerous sites. Please advise!

Or what federal resources can be marshaled to redevelop an abandoned factory or to protect a wetland in your town? Or want to know if there are any environmental hazards that your child walks by on the way to school? Thanks to HUD E-MAPS, which was created by marrying HUD's Community 2020TM software to EPA databases, the answers to these and thousands of other questions are now just a few mouse clicks away. [The web address is www.hud.gov/emaps]. The backbone for the application launched today is HUD's Community 2020TMsoftware, a CD-ROM that provides users with more than 600 types of census data for geographic areas as big as a state or as small as a block. Developed initially in 1997 as an internal project management tool, the software has won an Innovations in Government Award from the Ford Foundation and Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government. The software provides detailed, site-specific financial, managerial, demographic and program information for virtually every entitlement or competitive grant awarded by HUD since 1992. It includes information on single-family and multi-family housing projects assisted by HUD's Federal Housing Administration. Through the use of HUD E-MAPS, people can obtain: * Site-specific information about all Superfund sites as well as descriptions of the laws and regulations governing the Superfund program. * A listing and description of Brownfields, which are abandoned, idled or under-used industrial or commercial facilities where expansion or redevelopment is limited by real or perceived environmental contamination. Also included is information about Brownfields Tax Incentive Zones as well as the locations of its pilot programs. * Reports about air pollution emitted from such sources as electric power plants, steel mills, factories, universities and others. * Information that tracks which facilities use, manufacture, transport or release some 650 toxic chemicals, including information about air emissions, surface-water discharges, releases to land, underground injections and transfers to off-site locations. * Information about businesses that generate, transport, treat, store and dispose of hazardous waste, including the status of permits, regulatory compliance and clean-up activities. * Trend analyses of hazardous waste generation. * Information about which companies have been issued permits to discharge waste water into the nation's rivers, including expiration date of the permit, how much a company is permitted to discharge, and how much and what the company has discharged.
