Public Health Protection – A Geologist’s Perspective
Daniel C. Lang, Deputy Director, Center for Environmental Health – NYSDOH
Geologists have unique qualities, scientific principles and expertise that make them well equipped to put the public health challenges of our time into context. They understand that events of geologic significance (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, climate change effects, etc.) do not just spontaneously occur but in fact are mere symptoms of long-term, ever-changing, and often hidden (or ignored) processes. The profession of geology has therefore attracted like-minded people of a certain temperament and cool-headed nature that can be modeled by public health professionals.
This presentation will highlight some of the key public health protection initiatives in New York State and how geologic principles can be applied to help us better implement these programs. Drinking Water Source Protection, Water Infrastructure Improvements, Lead Service Line Replacements, Emerging Contaminant Monitoring, Maximum Contaminant Levels, Indoor Air Quality and Wastewater Surveillance are just a few of the relevant environmental health programs that would benefit from geologists’ perspectives. Deep dives into the Drinking Water Source Protection Program and the Statewide Wastewater Surveillance System will show how these public health protection initiatives can be successfully implemented with a better understanding of the effects of long-term processes and background monitoring programs so familiar to geologists.
