Accessibility

The California Environmental Protection Agency recognizes the importance of making its digital government services available to the largest possible audience and has attempted to design their Web site to be accessible by everyone. This Web site was designed to comply with the principles of accessibility outlined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as well as Section 508, Subpart B of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as revised in 1998. We believe most pages on our website and other communications can be reached by the widest possible audience. If you cannot fully access the information on any web page of this site, please contact us at cepacomm@calepa.ca.gov. Let us know the accessibility issue you are having and we will try to provide the information to you in an alternate format or make the necessary improvements to make the information accessible. In our effort to provide a fully accessible and optimized user experience for all site visitors, CalEPA has taken careful measure to ensure an excellent user experience, regardless of the assistive technology being used to access this site or the specific abilities of those individuals seeking access to this site. CalEPA’s website is monitored and tested regularly by internal resources and by AudioEye, a third-party provider of Web Accessibility testing and monitoring. As issues of accessibility are identified, results of automated and manual testing are managed through the AudioEye® Digital Accessibility Platform. As new solutions are discovered to improve the user experience, remediation is tracked through the AudioEye system and fixes are implemented to improve the website user experience.
