Blackwell Uncovered


ATSDR/CDC Contact and Question Form

Under CERCLA (The Superfund Act) Congress created the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry "ATSDR" to provide information on toxic substances in our environment.  Above is a link to their website.  Under 42 USC. 9604 (i) (6) (B), the ATSDR can preform a Public Heath Assessment under two cercumstances.  

1. When a Superfund Site is preposed for the National Priorties List (NPL). 
"A Superfund Site can be preposed to the NPL when it scores on the Hazardous Ranking Score (HRS) of 28.50 or more Blackwell had an overall Score of 70.71.  But our site was defered to the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality before the site could be preposed to the NPL."

2.  When a citizen petitions the ATSDR and request for a public health assessment to be conducted.
