SCI 275 Week 1 Community Environmental Issue
Communities across the United States face environmental issues. To see what issues are confronting your community, go to the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s website located at: http://www.epa.gov/myenvironment/.
Enter your zip code.
Scroll down to My Environmental Reports. If the reports are insufficient you may search your own state’s department of environmental protection or department of environmental quality (state agency names may vary but are easily accessible through an Internet search).
Choose an environmental report about an issue in your state or community.
Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper answering these questions:
- Why is this an environmental sustainability issue?
- What are the causes of the issue?
- What are the environmental regulations related to this issue?
- How has this environmental issue been regulated or not regulated in the past?
- What solutions are proposed?
Format your paper according to APA standards.
