In the late 1980’s, the Legislature declared childhood lead exposure to represent the most significant childhood environmental health problem in the State of California.  Subsequently, California enacted landmark legislation to prevent childhood lead poisoning, in part by establishing local programs such as San Joaquin County’s Child Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP).

San Joaquin County’s CLPPP was established in 1994 with the mission of eliminating childhood lead poisoning by identifying and caring for lead burdened children and preventing environmental exposures to lead.  The CLPPP’s vision is a healthy, lead-safe environment where all children can achieve their full potential. 

The Program is under the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch, California Department of Public Health.
