Worried about EPA issues? They have a website...

About to buy a property or tax lien and worried about EPA issues? Want to know if there are any EPA issues with your neighbors? (That rancid smell from the anti-social guy's house up the block HAS to be toxic - right?)

The EPA has a simple website that allows you to quickly see if any EPA issues are noted on the parcel.

Do a Google, Bing, Yahoo search for "Cleanups in my Community". It will take you to the EPA page or click this link to go to the page.

Scroll down to the "Find your community" section:

And then you can use a street address, or city, county, state, zip code to show the area. Then click "Map It!" and the map zooms to the area showing several different colored symbols indicating the types of EPA issues.

You can look at the legend on the page to determine what each symbol means. Then hover and click on a symbol to see the address and details of the issue for the parcel.

You can get all kinds of information on the site as well. Including Grants (you don't have to pay back) for cleaning up sites.
