EJSCREEN is EPA’s environmental justice tool for highlighting places that may have higher environmental burdens and vulnerable populations. The tool offers a variety of powerful data and mapping capabilities that enable users to access environmental and demographic information at high geographic resolution, across the entire country.

EPA is announcing the release of the latest version of the tool planned to be available to the public in August 2017. This annual update to the tool ensures that EJSCREEN utilizes the most up-to-date demographic and environmental data. The 2017 version of EJSCREEN has new features – all of which were requested by the public – including:

  • A revised water indicator that vastly improves user ability to screen for potential for surface water pollution.
  • The ability to look at municipalities as identified areas (a common request from our local government users) in addition to states, counties and census boundaries.
  • New map layers including schools, public housing, and prisons.

Please share this event with your network and anyone who may be interested in attending. If you are in need of special accommodations, please contact the event organizer within at least one day of the event. If you have any questions, please forward them to lung.tai@epa.gov.
