Webinar: Risk-Based Funding Pilot: Methodology, Lessons Learned, and Application (Recorded June 17, 2015) Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) In 2011, CDC launched a one-year risk-based funding pilot to accelerate the development of public health/medical/behavioral health risk identification and reduction models, interventions that are proven to reduce risk, and promising practice that can inform the larger awardee community. This pilot was part of a broader risk-based funding project that is intended to provide additional funding to "higher risk" jurisdictions. ASTHO, with support from CDC, hosted a webinar, Risk-Based Funding Pilot: Methodology, Lessons Learned, and Application that captured knowledge garnered from this risk-based funding pilot. Representatives from state and local health and academia in Texas, New Jersey, and Los Angeles County discussed methodology, lessons learned, and potential applications of jurisdictional risk assessments.

On the whole, American drinking water is safe. However, more than a year after toxic lead levels forced a federal state of emergency in Flint, MI, 63 percent of Americans report that they worry a great deal about polluted drinking water. This statistic comes from a new Gallup poll indicating that water pollution ranks the highest of six environmental concerns among respondents. While pipes in Flint are expected to be replaced with the help of a $97 million settlement, there are other cities with histories of unsafe lead levels — or other toxins — in drinking water. These contaminants can threaten health, particularly among children. This Forum grappled with safekeeping American drinking water supplies. Does the drinking water infrastructure need replacement? How would such an effort look? Do public alert systems help? What about other potential lead exposure sources? What is the role of regulation in a time of proposed deep cuts to EPA funding? What does the public need to know? This timely discussion was held in advance of Earth Day. Presented April 20, 2017, jointly with The Huffington Post. Watch the entire series at ForumHSPH.org.

Building U.S. Resilience to Global Warming Impacts - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2009-10-22 - The consequences of global warming in the United States will be significant even in the case of deep reductions in future heat-trapping emissions. The current and anticipated impacts -- including sea level rise, more frequent heat waves, regional drought and flooding, and more intense tropical storms -- pose a serious threat to our health, environment, economic well-being, and national security. While Congress works to curb carbon pollution to avoid the worst effects of global warming, America must look at adaptation measures that will protect communities from harm caused by global warming that is already set to occur. On Thursday October 22, 2009 at 9:30 a.m., the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a hearing on adaptation entitled, "Building U.S. Resilience to Global Warming Impacts" in room 2175 Rayburn House Office Building. WITNESSES: John Stephenson, Natural Resources and Environment, Government Accountability Office; Eric Schwaab, Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources; Stephen Seidel, V.P. for Policy Analysis and Gen. Counsel, Pew Center on Global Climate Change; Kenneth Green, Resident Scholar, American Enterprise Institute. Video provided by the U.S. House of Representatives.

The challenges exist at the national, regional, and local levels, but often the ability and authority to address issues are lacking. The discussion will address what is needed to integrate a response that is forward thinking, and can be accepted by the public and special interests.

Although generally associated with dams, canals and flood protection in the United States, USACE is involved in a wide range of public works throughout the world. The Corps of Engineers provides outdoor recreation opportunities to the public, and provides 24% of U.S. hydropower capacity. The corps' mission is to "Deliver vital public and military engineering services; partnering in peace and war to strengthen our Nation's security, energize the economy and reduce risks from disasters."Their most visible missions include: Planning, designing, building, and operating locks and dams. Other civil engineering projects include flood control, beach nourishment, and dredging for waterway navigation. Design and construction of flood protection systems through various federal mandates. Design and construction management of military facilities for the Army, Air Force, Army Reserve and Air Force Reserve and other Defense and Federal agencies. Environmental regulation and ecosystem restoration.

A dirty bomb or radiological dispersal device is a speculative radiological weapon that combines radioactive material with conventional explosives. The purpose of the weapon is to contaminate the area around the dispersal agent/conventional explosion with radioactive material, serving primarily as an area denial device against civilians. It is however not to be confused with a nuclear explosion, such as a fission bomb, which by releasing nuclear energy produces blast effects far in excess of what is achievable by the use of conventional explosives. Though a radiological dispersal device would be designed to disperse radioactive material over a large area, a bomb that uses conventional explosives and produces a blast wave would be far more lethal to people than the hazard posed by radioactive material that may be mixed with the explosive. At levels created from probable sources, not enough radiation would be present to cause severe illness or death. A test explosion and subsequent calculations done by the United States Department of Energy found that assuming nothing is done to clean up the affected area and everyone stays in the affected area for one year, the radiation exposure would be "fairly high", but not fatal. Recent analysis of the nuclear fallout from the Chernobyl disaster confirms this, showing that the effect on many people in the surrounding area, although not those in close proximity, was almost negligible.
