Identifying the Longitude and Latitude
U.S. EPA maintains several web sites that can be accessed to obtain a project site's longitude and latitude, which is required on the Rule 5 NOI letter form.
The following directions will help guide you through the web site:
- scroll down to the heading titled “Internet Siting Tools”, and select the provided link;
- enter the requested information to open the area map corresponding to your project site (the subsequent viewed image can be moved by pressing an appropriate directional arrow);
- once the highest zoom setting is selected, an aerial photograph will be shown; and
- place and click the cursor on the desired location on the photograph, and the latitude and longitude be displayed below the photograph.
