Re: RE: Proximity of DR Sites & U.S. City Hazards

I agree with the USGS and/or NOAA.  However, local administrative staff and law enforcement may not be able to provide 
you such information under the Critical Infrastructure Information Act of 2002, esp. if the site or location is close 
to or within proximity of a 'high risk' area.  Your local/state EPA, not to mention the U.S. EPA, may be "toothless" 
against directives coming from DHS, which may override your request.  Start with your local county Office of Emergency 
Management group (formerly "Emergency Services Disaster Agency", or "ESDA").  Your county-based OEM is a subset to the 
Department of Homeland Security, which services FEMA.  Start there and work your way up.

If you get too many hastles or get nowhere with your local county group, you might have to make a request using FOIA to 
DHS.

Is you are in the US, contact your state's dept of environmental protection.
They have the geologist that create these maps. Also, you could try FEMA.

As to major environmental hazards, the US Geologic Survey and NOAA have
authoritative information. However, there is still much unknown, therefore,
considerable risk arising from that fact.  Local authorities should be able
to provide maps regarding flood plains and other material of interest to
zoning/community planners and the construction industry.
