PRESS RELEASE

NEW WEBSITE FOR TRACKING ENVIRONMENTAL ENFORCEMENT

Tags:

Olympia, WA – Washington Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility today launched a new web resource displaying enforcement data from state, federal and local environmental and natural resource agencies, highlighting improper permits and other bad management practices, and providing public employees with information about their rights and options.

The website’s ‘data slices’ include enforcement records from the Washington Department of Ecology, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, U.S. Environmental protection Agency and local environmental protection and enforcement agencies.

“This new resource will arm the public with the data it needs to ensure the long-term health of Washington’s vibrant environment,” stated Washington PEER coordinator Lea Mitchell. “It will also serve as a gathering place for public employees concerned that their agencies are not upholding their missions.”

The site address is: www.wapeer.org
