In this post 9/11 age of terrorism, we are becoming more aware of the catastrophic threats posed by large quantities of chemicals in our communities. This page will bring together resources from and across the internet to create a comprehensive guide to the chemical risks we face in our communities, what has been done and what needs to be done to reduce them. Your feedback is appreciated. -- Michael R. Meuser




  • Toxic chemical facilities, schools and your neighborhood. Find out more about risks nearby, amount and effects of chemicals onsite and released.
  • Planning for the worst - Worst Case Scenario maps of Augusta, GA. "Ten local industries that manufacture, handle or store dangerous chemicals outlined worst-case scenarios - and more-likely scenarios - of chemical spills during a program Thursday..."
  • Chemical Accident Preparedness Chemical Risk Maps. This is the beginnings of a project here at MapCruzin. It is a model for mapping facilities that submitted their Risk Management Plans (RMPs) to EPA. Unfortunately, the links to the actual reports no longer work since EPA took them offline.


  • Environmental Health Watch: Chemical Facility Site Security. EHW has worked successfully with other organizations to develop, test and implement practical and effective model programs to protect human health and the environment. In addition, we work in coalition with community, labor, public health and other environmental organizations to advocate for a sustainable community.
  • Healthy Schools Network - Healthy Schools Network, Inc. is a nationally recognized, state-based advocate for the protection of children�s environmental health in schools. Founded in 1994, HSN does research, information and referral, advocacy, and coalition-building to build awareness of children�s environmental health needs and to assure every child and school employee an environmentally healthy school.


  • Protecting Public Health and Hazard Reduction - (Chemical plants, terrorism, and right-to-know).
  • ATSDR Report: Industrial Chemicals and Terrorism: Human Health Threat Analysis, Mitigation and Prevention. Note that this reports was "pulled" from the ATSDR website after 9/11 though it contains no information that would place any specific site at risk.
  • EPA Will Not Distribute "Worst Case Scenario" Chemical Accident Data Over the Internet. This is a backgound page that I put together during 1999 as discussions raged over putting "worst case scenarios" on the internet.
  • More Background and resources at
  • Post 9/11 Age of Missing Information. Our growing list of data and reports that are "missing in action" since 9/11.
  • background article about the Chemical Safety Board's withdrawn 600K report. There are links from there to many other related reports and information and to the copy of the report itself.
  • RMP Report - Accident Epidemiology and the U.S. Chemical Industry: Preliminary Results from RMP*Info. The study using Risk Management Plan (RMP) data says, "In two cases, it was discovered that a facility had changed its [RMP] report ... In one case, 9 public deaths had been reported and in the other case 5 deaths ... in both cases, these reports were resubmitted and changed to 0 deaths." Download (PDF format).
