Different program elements apply to different geographic areas because we focus where we will have the biggest impact on reducing health risks. For example, the Family Health Program targets families of pre-schoolers in Trail and Rivervale because these are the areas where higher blood lead levels are more likely to occur.
Our program also looks for ways to extend services to other people who might want or need them. For instance, if you live in the Lower Columbia outside Trail or Rivervale, you may request blood lead testing for your children up to age 5. Also, the Lead Safe Renovation Program provides free supports throughout the Lower Columbia to renovators of older pre-1976 homes where lead-based paint may be an issue.
In 2019, we expanded our soil testing and remediation program. We offer soil testing and, in qualifying yards, replacement of soil or improvements to ground cover on a prioritized basis. For more information, click here.
We have a resource library with Fact Sheets on four program areas: Family Health, Home & Garden, Air Quality and Eco-system Management as well as an FAQ section that answers common questions. Please check out our program maps for the geographic areas covered by those services.
