Center for Hazardous Substances in Urban Environments

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

About 80 percent of the U.S. population lives in metropolitan areas. These urban residents face a number of pressing environmental problems including exposure to toxic chemicals from Superfund sites, landfills, incinerators, leaded paint and gasoline, Brownfields, industrial release, and pesticide use. In this context, EPA Regions 1 and 3 have both identified [HTML_REMOVED]Urban Livability[HTML_REMOVED] as a strategic priority. Focusing on the upper mid-Atlantic to the Northeast, the mission of this Center is two-fold: (1) to promote a better understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes for detecting, assessing, and managing risks associated with the use and disposal of hazardous substances in urban environments and (2) to disseminate the results of the research and provide technical expertise to various stakeholders including community groups, municipal officials, EPA, State, and local regulators, and industry.
