    (b)   The state's pollution complaint data that is collected by various state agencies is a specific classification of geographic information that the Commission is charged with the responsibility of making this information accessible to the public. This is being accomplished through coordination with the various agencies and by creating and maintaining a central database for the purpose of reporting and making this information available to the public.
