9 News, 11/6/19

The City and County of Broomfield (CCOB) rolled out an enhanced public health concern form and public health nurse followup program this week.

In response to reports from residents living near the Extraction well pads of nausea, nosebleeds and headaches that align with the results of the new Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Study, CCOB “is enhancing data collection around reported health concerns to be used to inform future policy through Broomfield.org/ImmediateConcern.”

The CCOB announcement states, “Public health staff will followup on each reported health concern with a phone call, both new and past concerns going back 30 days. Broomfield is also building environmental epidemiology and toxicology expertise to collect data and conduct comprehensive analysis aimed at informing and addressing resident’s health concerns related to oil and gas activities.”
