Site Assessment Section
We strive to protect the public's health through the following:
- Creating scientifically sound and useful assessments that embody environmental justice principles and equity
- Providing opportunities, knowledge, tools and resources that enable communities to make informed decisions
Annual Stakeholder Roundtable Proceedings
Each year the Environmental Health Investigations Branch's Site Assessment Section (SAS) convenes a day long Stakeholder Roundtable. The Roundtables are part of the proactive outreach to stakeholders representing diverse communities in California and representatives of NGOs, academia, federal, state and local agencies. It provides the Site Assessment Section with an opportunity to discuss environmental public health concerns in a neutral setting; it fosters a productive learning environment for all participants and provides the SAS with guidance for its current and future work.
