Web Content Accessibility

The California Environmental Protection Agency recognizes the importance of making its digital government services available to the largest possible audience and has attempted to design their Web site to be accessible by everyone. This Web site was designed to comply with the principles of accessibility outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as well as Section 508, Subpart B of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as revised in 1998. We believe most pages on our website and other communications can be reached by the widest possible audience.

If you cannot fully access the information on any web page of this site, please contact us at cepacomm@calepa.ca.gov. Let us know the accessibility issue you are having and we will try to provide the information to you in a alternate format or make the necessary improvements to make the information accessible.

Documents on this Site

This web site contains links to PDF documents that require a recent version of Adobe Reader to view. The Adobe Acrobat Reader may already be installed on your computer as a "plug-in" or "helper application" for your web browser. To find out, click on the "PDF" link for the document you are interested in. If the Adobe Acrobat Reader is properly installed on your computer, the Reader will either download or automatically open a PDF copy of the document, depending on your browser and how it is configured. If the Adobe Acrobat Reader is not installed on your computer, it can be found, free of charge, at the Adobe Acrobat Reader download page.

If you are using a screen reader, you may find it will not read some documents in PDF format. Adobe provides a web site that will convert nonaccessible PDF files to a format that is useable with a screen reader. The Adobe Access site is located at access.adobe.com, and the tool can also be added to your computer as a "plug-in."
