Colorado Cooperative Program for Environmental Health Assessments (CCPEHA)
CCPEHA represents the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment cooperative partnership with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the principal Atlanta-based federal public health agency responsible for the health issues related to hazardous waste.
CCPEHA is the only state public health program that evaluates the public health implications of exposures to environmental contamination using the ATSDR public health assessment process, and identifies appropriate actions for particular communities to prevent or reduce exposures that are potentially harmful
Overall, CCPEHA helps communities by:
Identifying pathways of human exposure and evaluating human health risks associated with Colorado hazardous waste sites, and providing guidance to regulatory agencies responsible for cleanup.
Identifying appropriate public health actions for particular communities in order to prevent or reduce exposures that have been, are being, or potentially harmful.
Continuing efforts to address community health concerns through community involvement and health education.
