EPA (environment)

United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) secures the adherence to environmental standards and publishes reports on the environment, e.g. when catastrophes occur.

The EPA has collated their reports regarding the World Trade Center here.

Residential Dust Cleanup Program

In April 2002, the mayor of New York City asked the EPA to study the potential environmental consequences of the dust from Ground Zero spreading over downtown Manhattan, and to secure that the population was protected from possible health dangers. The initiated program meant that citizens living in the lower part of Manhattan could have
their homes cleaned and have the dust tested.
