CalEPA started a project to create a digital map of jurisdictional boundaries for Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs) and their associated Participating Agencies (PAs).This effort is in response to challenges with determining CUPA and PA jurisdiction based on zip codes. The current zip code-based identification of jurisdictional boundaries is problematic in densely populated areas sometimes causing confusion over who has jurisdiction. This may result in delays coordinating emergency response activities. The map resulting from this project will be incorporated into CERS NextGen for regulator assignment. The CUPA GIS Project will establish an accurate dataset to increase efficiency for emergency response teams and address CUPA assignment challenges. This website will be used to provide project updates and additional information as the project progresses.
