ics related to the everyday lives of people with inflammatory
bowel disease (IBD). Friends and family members are welcome.
There is also a Guilford group already in existence, which
meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7p.m. in Guilford’s
police station.
Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis are the two main disease
categories that belong to a larger group of illnesses called
inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Both illnesses are marked
by an abnormal response by the body’s immune system and
can take a toll on one’s physical, as well as emotional, life.
Crohn’s disease is a chronic disorder causing inflammation of
the digestive or gastrointestinal (GI) tract, most commonly af-
fecting the small intestine and/or colon. Ulcerative colitis is a
chronic disease of the colon, or large intestine. The disease is
marked by inflammation and ulceration of the colon mucosa,
or innermost lining.
The New Haven group meets at 40 Temple Street, Suite
1A (paid parking available: Temple Street Garage) in New Ha-
ven, CT. Guilford Police Department is located at 400 Church
Street in Guilford, CT. For more information, contact Sally at

Online Tool Helps Homebuyers
Think Green
E
nvironmental Data Resources, Inc. (EDR), a company based
in Milford, provides environmental information and reports
for properties in the United States. Recently, the company
launched the EDR GreenScreenerTM, which offers free informa-
tion on environmental contamination for residential properties.
Today’s homebuyer is more aware than ever of environmental
issues and associated health problems. That is why issues found
inside the home, like radon, mold and lead-based paint, are
routinely evaluated during inspections. But pollution can also
originate from outside sources, such as an oil leak from an un-
derground storage tank, which can travel through soil, ground-
water, or air, and impact nearby homes. The GreenScreenerTM
is an online tool that allows users to plot a property by address to
view known and potential issues, such as leaking underground
tanks, hazardous waste sites, and superfund sites. It detects five
types of environmental concerns that may exist on or around
a property. Records of prior environmental contamination are
searched within 1/3 of a mile from the property, except for leak-
ing storage tanks, which are searched to within five hundred
feet. This tool aims to help homebuyers make an informed
decision, whether simply providing piece of mind about the
Happiness is a bowl
property, or helping assess when further steps should be taken
of cherries and a book
to mitigate issues. EDR generates over 750,000 environmental
risk reports a year in support of real estate transactions, and
of poetry under
corporate and government initiatives. It also provides contact
information for government agencies responsible for reporting
a shade tree
and monitoring contaminated sites.
