FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To accomplish its mission to protect human health and the environment, EPA must pay close attention to status and trends in the nation’s air, water, and land, as well as related trends in human health and ecological systems. To help meet this need, EPA embarked on an initiative in 2001 to assemble the most reliable indicators of national environmental and health conditions that are important to EPA’s mission. EPA initially presented these indicators in its Draft Report on the Environment Technical Document and its publicly oriented companion document, the Draft Report on the Environment, both released in 2003. Since then, EPA has revised, updated, and refined the ROE in response to scientific developments and feedback from EPA’s Science Advisory Board and other stakeholders. As a result, the EPA’s 2008 Report on the Environment (EPA/600/R–07/045F), released May 20, 2008 (73 FR 29134), provides both an update and an improvement over the 2003 draft edition. In addition, EPA’s Office of Environmental Information produced the companion document, EPA’s 2008 Report on the Environment: Highlights of National Trends (ROE Highlights), released September 24, 2008, which presents the key findings of the ROE in a format intended for the general public and without the technical detail. In an effort to make the content of both ROE documents widely available, EPA has created a dynamic Web site— the electronic Report on the Environment (eROE)—which has all the ROE information in a searchable format. In addition to the indicator findings and charts, it includes the methodology, references and sources of additional information behind the indicators in the report. The ROE Highlights document has an accompanying Web site with links to the ROE-wide site. Both reports are available for download from the ROE front page and the online topics are linked together to make navigation seamless. Furthermore, EPA plans to update indicator information online as new data become available so the public has access to the most current information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: To accomplish its mission to protect human 
health and the environment, EPA must pay close attention to status and 
trends in the nation's air, water, and land, as well as related trends 
in human health and ecological systems. To help meet this need, EPA 
embarked on an initiative in 2001 to assemble the most reliable 
indicators of national environmental and health conditions that are 
important to EPA's mission. EPA initially presented these indicators in 
its Draft Report on the Environment Technical Document and its publicly 
oriented companion document, the Draft Report on the Environment, both 
released in 2003. Since then, EPA has revised, updated, and refined the 
ROE in response to scientific developments and feedback from EPA's 
Science Advisory Board and other stakeholders. As a result, the EPA's 
2008 Report on the Environment (EPA/600/R-07/045F), released May 20, 
2008 (73 FR 29134), provides both an update and an improvement over the 
2003 draft edition. In addition, EPA's Office of Environmental 
Information produced the companion document, EPA's 2008 Report on the 
Environment: Highlights of National Trends (ROE Highlights), released 
September 24, 2008, which presents the key findings of the ROE in a 
format intended for the general public and without the technical 
detail.
    In an effort to make the content of both ROE documents widely 
available, EPA has created a dynamic Web site--the electronic Report on 
the Environment (eROE)--which has all the ROE information in a 
searchable format. In addition to the indicator findings and charts, it 
includes the methodology, references and sources of additional 
information behind the indicators in the report. The ROE Highlights 
document has an accompanying Web site with links to the ROE-wide site. 
Both reports are available for download from the ROE front page and the 
online topics are linked together to make navigation seamless. 
Furthermore, EPA plans to update indicator information online as new 
data become available so the public has access to the most current 
information.
