Site revamped with business in mind

As part of a major redesign of its online presence, the New England office

of the Environmental Protection Agency last week launched its first Web

page for the region's small businesses.

Much of the information found at the {http://www.epa.gov/region01/steward/smallbusiness}

First Stop environmental home page was available previously — but hard to

find — on the EPA's New England regional site, said Tony D'Avanzo, special

assistant to the regional administrator. He said the new home page for small

businesses presents information in a much more user-friendly, centralized

manner.

Small-business owners can use the site to find:

* Full text and summaries of local, state and federal laws and regulations.

* How to find experts who can help solve technical problems.

* Equipment, products and services that help reduce pollution and waste

of natural resources.

Web page content was developed in collaboration with state environmental

agencies, organizations and businesses, D'Avanzo said. The site has extensive

links to state and interstate agencies and organizations, such as the Association

of Local Air Pollution Control Officials.
