( - Washington -- The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) has launched a Chinese-language Web site with materials
on a variety of issues ranging from lead-poisoning prevention, energy
efficiency and clean water to proper management of pesticides.

The site is aimed at the Chinese-speaking communities in the United
States and worldwide. Currently presented in traditional Chinese
characters, the site eventually will carry simplified Chinese as well.
Chinese is the third most commonly spoken language in the United
States, after English and Spanish. EPA says the new portal also should
enhance environmental cooperation between the United States and China.
EPA currently has cooperative programs with several Chinese
governmental bodies to address threats to human health and the
environment, including initiatives on air pollution, water pollution
and management of hazardous waste and toxic substances.

The agency also collaborates with China on research, policy
development and strengthening of environmental enforcement capability.
Chinese-language materials on a wide range of environmental topics are
available on the EPA Web site.
