UC comments to Department of Public Health Draft Public Health Statement available

November 19, 2007

On July 15, 2007, the state Department of Public Health (DPH) released a draft "Public Health Assessment" (PHA) regarding the University's Richmond Field Station (RFS). The draft PHA evaluates existing RFS environmental data, makes conservative assumptions regarding possible exposures to contaminants found at the site, estimates potential health impacts, and evaluates health concerns raised by some RFS employees.

UC Berkeley's comment letter on the draft PHA is available on the Technical Documents page of this website.
