How do I report an elevated blood lead level (EBLL) to Tri-County Health Department?

Contact Kayla Lesperance at (303) 363-3030. She will need to know the name of the child, date of birth, child's address, date of blood lead test, whether it was a venous or capillary sample, test result, and whether it was confirmed as being elevated. She will also need your name, clinic name, and clinic address. Feel free to leave this information on her confidential voice mail. Normally all blood lead test results are reported by the testing laboratory to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). CDPHE then reports blodd lead level's of 5 microgram/deciliter or greater to the respective local health department for follow-up.
