EPA Goes Mobile


Now here’s something in the department of “this has potential” …..The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a Web site tailored for cell phone users http://m.epa.gov, with the goal of making EPA more visible to people on the go.  Initial services available include:

  • Contact information for EPA’s national and regional offices;
  • Environmental information listed by ZIP code;
  • EPA news releases;
  • Greenversations blog, including their question of the week;
  • Link to USA.gov’s helpful list of other state and federal agency mobile Web sites.

OK. So that’s a modest start. Maybe you should give the EPA  some ideas about what else you think they ought to tell us. Comment here or send emails directly to the EPA.

  • Thanks, Ellen. We’re also hoping people will help us by letting us know what they really would use a mobile EPA site to do. I hope your readers will use the feedback form. We’ve already gotten one surprising request: for the environmental chunk of the Code of Federal Regulations. It came from a compliance officer who needs references on-site.

    And thanks, Sameer – great link! I’ll be sure to pass that along.

    Great start, hopefully one day we can make it a two way communication between the EPA and citizens.
