Practice-based research and initiatives

EHS’s partnerships with the local health districts of East Shore and Stratford and the Connecticut departments of Public Health (DPH) and Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) provide community-based partnerships and projects to address wastewater and private well water quality, superfund sites and reduction of PFAS in the state's air, water and soil in Connecticut. The Yale WATER study examines the impact of unconventional oil and gas development on drinking water quality in Pennsylvania and Ohio, while evaluating other factors that may influence drinking water chemistry in these locations.
