Enviro$en$e, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Web site, is a repository for pollution prevention, compliance assurance, and enforcement information and databases. Included are pollution prevention case studies, technologies, points of contact, environmental statutes, executive orders, regulations, and compliance and enforcement policies and guidelines. The site includes a search engine. Two publications of interest to shipyards that can be found on the site are Waste Reduction Guide: Shipyards and Guides to Pollution Prevention: The Marine Maintenance and Repair Industry.
