Why is this useful?
See abstract for description by authors. This is useful as it helps define air, water and soil pollution -- in the context of our daily activities (not like a textbook). It explains to the users where to find data on each type of pollution including their levels and their sources, using federal databases. It also explains which federal (and some state) agencies are responsible for which types of pollutants -- so people know whom and how to call with their questions.
