Environmental Health PrioritiesEnvironmental health involves understanding hazards in our homes and communities, and preventing them from harming our health.
The Health Department was awarded a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to find out what environmental health issues are most important to county residents, and what we should do about them. To do this, Pierce County Coalition for Environmental Health Priorities members met from April 2007 to January 2009. Please click on the link for meeting agendas, notes, and more:
