The mean environmental health hazard index of San Bernardino County, CA was 29 in 2015.

Median Environmental Health Hazard Index

The environmental health hazard exposure index summarizes potential exposure to harmful toxins including carcinogenic, respiratory, and neurological hazards. Values are percentile ranked and range from 0 to 100, with higher values corresponding to less exposure to harmful toxins. Data is computed for U.S. counties by applying summary statistics across all census tracts present in a county and is current as of 2015.

    RICAPS Solid Waste Contribution to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    data.smcgov.org | Last Updated 2018-06-06T21:01:45.000Z

    Data by city showing solid waste contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the County. This data is part of the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS) program. Each city in San Mateo County has the opportunity to develop its own Climate Action Plan (CAP) using tools developed by C/CAG in conjunction with DNV KEMA https://www.dnvgl.com/ and Hara. http://www.verisae.com/default.aspx. This project was funded by grants from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E). Climate Action Plans developed from these tools will meet BAAQMD's California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) guidelines for a Qualified Greenhouse Gas Reduction Strategy.

    San Francisco Plant Finder Data

    data.sfgov.org | Last Updated 2018-11-07T16:41:36.000Z

    This is the plant list used by the SF Plant Finder (http://sfplantfinder.org). The San Francisco Plant Finder is a resource for gardeners, designers, ecologists and anyone who is interested in greening neighborhoods, enhancing our urban ecology and surviving the drought. The Plant Finder recommends appropriate habitat-building plants for sidewalks, gardens and roofs that are adapted to San Francisco's unique environment and climate. The plants in the database include California natives and Mediterranean climate exotics. A large subset of the California natives are actually local San Francisco natives. We strongly recommend local natives since they provide the best habitat for local pollinators and other wildlife with whom they have co-evolved. San Francisco natives are the most closely adapted to the climate and environment of the San Francisco peninsula of course, and so they are the best in terms of water and soil conservation, ecosystem health, and overall sustainability. You can get the geographic ares for plant communities represented in this dataset here: https://data.sfgov.org/d/27u4-a5b3

    RICAPS Transportation Contribution to Greenhouse Gas Emissions

    data.smcgov.org | Last Updated 2018-06-13T15:40:14.000Z

    Data by city showing transportation contribution to greenhouse gas emissions in the County. This data is part of the Regionally Integrated Climate Action Planning Suite (RICAPS) program. The majority of cities used the “in-boundary” methodology that relies on data from the Highway Performance Monitoring System. The inventories for South San Francisco and Unincorporated County use the “origin-destination” methodology from that relies on data from Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). So, directly comparing vehicle miles traveled (VMT) across all cities is not statistically possible.

    Countywide Waste by Destination 1995 - 2013

    data.smcgov.org | Last Updated 2016-02-29T17:06:32.000Z

    Data about the amount of solid waste in San Mateo County by the waste's destination. Destination means the county where the waste was disposed. Alternative Daily Cover (ADC) means CalRecycle-approved materials other than soil used as a temporary overlay on an exposed landfill face. ADC is measured in tons. CalRecycle-approved materials other than soil used as a temporary overlay on an exposed landfill face. Generally, these materials must be processed so that they do not allow gaps in the face surface, which would provide breeding grounds for insects and vermin. Public Resources Code section 41781.3 stipulates this practice is recycling, not disposal, and authorizes CalRecycle to adopt regulations, such as Title 27 California Code of Regulations, section 20690. Approved materials include processed green materials, sludge, ash and kiln residue, compost, construction and demolition debris, and special foams and fabrics. Also see Local Enforcement Agency (LEA) Advisory #48. Data is based upon information reported by permitted facility operators and compiled by County/Regional Agency disposal reporting coordinators. Only finalized data are shown in these reports.
