Childhood Lead Abatement Program

Investigations Available or Lead Information

Upon receiving a notification of elevated lead levels in a child 6 years of age or younger; the Environmental Division initiates an environmental investigation (in conjunction with our Nursing Division's related investigation) as to the source of lead. This is often related to the residence of the affected individual. Once the source of lead is identified, the Environmental Division directs abatement measures. In addition, the department provides printed information on lead to residents upon request.
