Lead Prevention and Awareness

The Health Department has been notified by MDEQ of elevated lead (Pb) levels in soil samples from a section of Port Huron between Water Street and Lapeer Avenue. Although the source of lead in this area remains unclear, preliminary reports have provided enough information for the Health Department to recommend blood lead testing for residents in this area. A letter from the Health Department has been sent to these inviting them to receive blood lead testing (finger stick). Testing will be offered June 26 from 9:00am – 12:00pm and 5:00pm – 7:00pm at Harrison Center located at 55 15th Street, Port Huron. Other testing options include making an appointment at the SCCHD or at your doctor’s office.

St. Clair County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) / Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

The St. Clair County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) and Community Health Needs Assessment Summary (CHNA) are posted on our Statistics and Data page under Community Health Assessment Profiles. These reports produce comprehensive health data with a purpose to generate a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) and look at future considerations of how/what funding to use for all public and private groups that identify health as a priority area. The (CHIP) process has officially begun and is a long-term, systematic effort to address public health problems based on the results of community health assessment activities and the community health improvement process. We will work to define the vision for the health of a community; set priorities; coordinate & target resources; develop policy & define actions; and address strengths, weaknesses, opportunities & challenges. This process will be jointly facilitated by the St. Clair County Metropolitan Planning Commission and Health Department.
