Child Lead Poisoning

Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Resources

The N.C. Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) coordinates clinical and environmental services aimed at eliminating childhood lead poisoning.  Environmental Health Specialists in Brunswick County work closely with staff from the CLPPP to identify and eliminate lead poisoning hazards in homes and buildings occupied by children less than 6 years of age with elevated blood lead levels and/or confirmed lead poisoning or where conditions which could present a lead poisoning hazard to children exist.
