The mission of the Summit County Environmental Council (SCEC) is to increase public access to information regarding environmental issues relating to the health of Summit County residents and to facilitate communication among the agencies and individuals concerned with those issues.

In order to provide Summit County residents with a structured way to locate resources dealing with these environmental health issues, the SCEC has constructed this site of web links.

We will update this preliminary list of links as issues and circumstances develop. We hope these sites provide beneficial information to Summit County residents.


The Summit County Environmental Council (SCEC) is a product of the first phase of the Healthy Summict 2000 project. Healthy Summit 2000, a community directed project, concluced its first phase in 1996 by indentifying priority health issues for Summit County. Environmental concerns were included in the list of priority health issues.
