Statescoop interviews Missouri and Arizona representatives about their Gateway for Community Assistance.
From the article
To prevent this and protect residents, Missouri and Arizona have partnered on a new online portal to help cities decipher environmental standards when upgrading water systems and infrastructure. The portal, called the Gateway for Community Assistance, launched on April 30 and acts like an automated compliance consultant. It offers communities a planning tool with customized recommendations on specific projects, a catalog of available state services and compliance details on wastewater, drinking water, storm water, solid waste, air quality, and other areas. The tool is aimed at assisting cash-strapped communities that might not have the on-site engineering staff or funding to hire outside help.
