GRANTS ANNOUNCED TO LOCAL COMMUNITIES TO
ACCESS ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION

In 1996, President Clinton directed EPA to develop a program that allows 
communities across the country the
opportunity to provide timely environmental information to local citizens. 
This program is known as Environmental
Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT). EMPACT is 
designed to provide public access to
clear, timely and accurate environmental monitoring data using the latest 
technology which will be established in
86 of the largest metropolitan areas. EPA is now announcing the award of 
approximately $3.4 million in grants to
seven communities, which marks the second year of awards of grants to eight 
communities. This year's projects will
provide environmental information through advanced measurement, information 
management and communications
technologies. These projects focus on innovative ways to track and deliver 
real-time environmental information on
the status of the air, water and the ecosystems in local communities. This 
year's winners are: City of Tulsa,
Okla.; Washtenaw County, Mich.; City of El Paso, Texas; Narragansett Bay, 
R.I.; Syracuse City, N.Y.; South Florida
Water Management District; and the City of Cheyenne, Wyo. More information 
on EMPACT is found at:
