Project Title & Description
Environmental Justice Small Grant Program
The purpose of this project is to create a baseline data set for ambient air, water, soil, and health in Conejos County with regard to radioactive, hazardous, and toxic contaminants and respective diseases that can be caused by exposure to said contaminants. A second goal is to establish an air monitor station that will have the ability to collect radioactive, hazardous, and toxic contaminants for laboratory analysis. With baseline data, residents of Conejos County will have a mechanism to measure the impact of federal and other actions on air, water, soil, and health in Conejos County.
