Environmental Justice Burden Indicators in Georgia

Working with our partners, Science for Georgia has developed an Environmental Justice Burden Index. This index is based on information from the White House’s Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool (CEJST) and the EPA’s Environmental Justice Screening and Mapping Tool (EJ Screen).

The “story map” shown below shows how this data works together to create a Georgia EJ Burden Index and then specifically to show the location of sites on the Georgia Environmental Protection Division’s (EPD) Hazardous Site Index (HSI).

From this base index, Science for Georgia and partners are creating Stories of Burden for individual communities across Georgia.

Check out the map below.
