HAZARDSCAPES: Toxic & Nuclear Risks In Your Backyard?

We have created this page so that you can learn more about the potential risks you and your family may face from toxic chemical accidents and releases and nuclear waste in your community where you live, work and play. These resources are organized into 3 categories: Air Quality Forecasts, Pollution, Chemical Accidents and Nuclear Waste.

Air Quality Forecast Finder

  • Where I Live - EPA Air Quality Forecasts (Ozone). Click here for forecasts.

  • Today and Tomorrow's Air Quality Forecasts - EPA's updated AirNow website provides forecasts and easy-to-understand maps updated on an hourly basis on ozone air quality information from monitors in 39 states and Washington, D.C. (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin). Within the next month, Idaho, New Mexico and Colorado are expected to be added. The expanded website will also include same day and next day forecasts for over 160 cities across the country.

    These forecasts are based on EPA's Air Quality Index (AQI), which uses a color-coding system to rate air quality as good (green), moderate (yellow), unhealthy for sensitive groups (orange), unhealthy (red), very unhealthy (purple) or hazardous (maroon); the AQI also provides cautionary health statements for each rating. EPA shares the AQI forecasts for all major cities in the United States with weather service providers who make the information available to newspapers, television and radio.

    Smog is created by a chemical reaction between nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds in the presence of sunlight. When inhaled - even at very low levels - smog can cause acute respiratory problems, aggravate asthma, reduce lung capacity, inflame lung tissue and impair the body's immune system.
