Your Health and Oil and Gas

Broomfield is embarking on Phase III of a long-range, comprehensive Oil & Gas Program plan focused on a targeted approach to health and safety.  Our Public Health Department is increasing its capacity in the areas of environmental epidemiology and toxicology to begin data collection and trend analysis on the health effects of oil and gas activities.    

Oil and Gas Health Survey

The City and County of Broomfield Department of Public Health and Environment and Colorado School of Public Health at University of Colorado Denver Anschutz campus are working together to better understand the health implications of living near oil and gas development. To accomplish this, CCOB and CSPH are conducting a research study that involves a health survey that will be sent out to 1,600 randomly selected households in Broomfield. This survey will ask questions about recent health symptoms. The responses to this survey will help inform the City and County of Broomfield, health experts, policy makers, and the broader scientific community about the potential health implications of living near oil and gas in our community. Learn more about the survey here.
