NOTICE OF BLOOD TESTING
3:00 to 7:00 p.m., June 29th, 2004
at the Rico Elementary School
Blood testing for the presence of lead will be offered on Tuesday,
June 29th, 2004, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Rico Elementary
School. Blood testing is offered at no charge for all residents in
the Rico area.
This blood testing event is part of the on-going effort to collect
data and understand the health risks associated with the presence
of high lead content soils in the Rico area. All persons are encouraged
to take advantage of this blood testing event. Testing of children
is especially encouraged because development age children are more
susceptible to the adverse affects of elevated lead in blood. If you
are interested in blood testing for you or your family but are not
able to attend this blood testing event, please contact Eric Heil,
Town Attorney, at (970) 967-5550 or email@example.com,
or Marilyn Griebel, at (970) 967-7201, for information on other options
for blood testing.
This blood testing event is sponsored by the Town of Rico, Department
of Local Affairs, Atlantic Richfield Corporation and Rico Renaissance.
