EPA Ag Center New Publications and List Server

EPA?s National Agriculture Compliance Assistance Center (Ag Center) has some
useful new entries on its publications list. The Center also offers a new e-mail
system for notifying users about the latest topics posted on the news page at
the Ag Center web site.

New Publications
The Ag Center has again updated its automatic ?fax-back? system for fact sheets
and other publications. The number to call for these publications, and for other
up-to-date information on environmental requirements that affect agriculture, is

New topics such as Food Safety and Y2K information are now available. The list
still includes information on pesticides, underground storage tanks, animal
feeding operations, and many other subjects. Callers can request that documents
be faxed or sent by mail, or can choose to talk to an Ag Center representative.
