Committee Charge

The Northern Metals Consent Decree Advisory Committee (referred to from here in as the Advisory Committee) shall be charged with providing recommendations for the budget breakdown of the $600,000 dedicated to community asthma and lead reduction work within the parameters of the four projects defined in the consent decree. The Advisory Committee shall also be charged with providing recommendations on how the City can best implement the four projects defined by the consent decree, including recommendations on how to define impacted communities, how to identify and educate the at-risk residents, how to identify and reach the families of children with asthma, and how to conduct lead-screening events.

The consent decree states that the mitigation project shall include projects in the impacted neighborhoods to:

(1) identify and educate at-risk residents on asthma triggers; (2) enroll families with children suffering from poorly controlled asthma in a new asthma trigger mitigation program; and (3) implement community and block-by-block blood lead level screening events in cooperation with local clinics which will offer follow-up venous blood screening as needed; and (4) identify and connect affected individuals with resources to help reduce environmental exposure to lead.
