Pollution Information by Zip Code


Pollution Information by Zip Code

Logo for Pollution Information by Zip Code
Enter your zip code for an in-depth pollution report for your community. This is an excellent resource exercise you can use in your courses to stimulate discussions concerning environmental issues. I use this in my sociology courses; however, it can be applied in almost all disciplines.

Although this site did have a lot of info, it took me awhile to access everything and I am still trying to decided what would be the best way to use it in Soc class.

I did not see a lesson plan or suggestions for spot, but I might have just missed it?

This site is interesting.   It is very easy to use and provides information on pollution -- air, water, which companies are contributing to the problem.  Faculty using this site could use it as a resource for lectures on environmental impact of pollution; science, technology and society or contemporary social issues.

This is a great site. I never thought i would find so much information on pollutants on the site. What's best is that they are the pollutants affecting ones community. It can be implemented in many lessons to show students how pollution affects their own community.

Technical Remarks:

No problems.

This site is an excellent resource for anyone. As a teacher, this website could be used to demonstrate key polluters in student's very own backyards!

Technical Remarks:

The listing of primary polluters make this a tangible way to see what is going on in our own communities.
