Lead Illness Investigations

Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program

When a child is identified as having a high blood lead level, investigators with the Environmental Health Division work closely with the Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services and the child's family to identify and remove the cause of the lead poisoning.

This program also provides education and outreach to other agencies and the public.
