The California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) and the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) announce the availability of the Second Public Review Draft of the California Communities Environmental Health Screening Tool (CalEnviroScreen). This draft of CalEnviroScreen presents an updated screening methodology to identify California communities that are disproportionately burdened by multiple sources of pollution and presents the statewide results of the analysis using the screening tool. 

Input received on the previous draft of this report [http://oehha.ca.gov/ej/cipa073012.html] was valuable and is reflected in changes in the current report. OEHHA considered input that Cal/EPA received from the Agency’s Cumulative Impacts and Precautionary Approaches (CI/PA) Work Group, as well as comments received at regional and stakeholder-specific public workshops, an academic workshop, and written comments from the public. A summary of the major changes to the CalEnviroScreen methodology and report is also provided below.     

Cal/EPA and OEHHA will convene a public meeting of the Agency's CI/PA Work Group on Friday, January 11, 2013 for the Work Group and the public to provide input on this CalEnviroScreen report. More information on the meeting is available at http://oehha.ca.gov/ej/cipa121912.html. The draft agenda for the meeting is available at http://www.oehha.ca.gov/ej/pdf/011113PublicAgenda.pdf
