HEALTH CONSULTATION

HAVEN AVENUE LEAD SITE
OCEAN CITY, CAPE MAY COUNTY, NEW JERSEY


CONCLUSIONS

Lead was detected in the soil at several residences along the north side of the 600 block of Haven Avenue at levels that pose a health threat to those who may come in frequent contact with the soil. The greatest threat is to children, and to a lesser degree, adults.


RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Remediate contaminated areas in yards to reduce exposure to lead contaminated soil.
  2. Ensure that all children less than six years old who reside in residences on or adjacent to contaminated yards are tested for blood lead levels. If elevated levels are detected, implement CDC's recommendations for follow-up activities [5].
