State Biomonitoring Grants
4 Corners States Biomonitoring Consortium
(Utah*lead, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico)
The 4 Corners States Biomonitoring Programexternal icon is organized through a consortium between the states of Utah (leading state), Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The consortium leverages resources from a variety of programs to increase the capability and capacity among the states for biomonitoring.
The consortium is implementing key studies based on similar residential, occupational, socio-economic, demographic, and environmental concerns among the state’s residents.
- The Private Well Drinking Water and Metals Contamination Study assesses exposure to metals of concern from well water in the consortium states.
- The Exposure of Four Corners States Residents to Metals, Pesticides and Consumer Products assesses exposure to herbicides, pesticides, and phthalates in the consortium states.
- The San Luis Valley Children’s Study assesses exposures of children ages 3 to 13 to hazardous chemicals including metals, pesticides, and phthalates.
CDC’s Division of Laboratory Sciences awarded the 4 Corners States Biomonitoring Program $787,870 in fiscal year 2017 for the biomonitoring program.
