June 2022 JEH: Direct From CDC/Environmental Health Services
Journal of Environmental Health (Volume 84, Number 10)
Editor's Note: The National Environmental Health Association strives to provide up-to-date and relevant information on environmental health and to build partnerships in the profession. In pursuit of these goals, we feature a column on environmental health services from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in every issue of the Journal.
In these columns, authors from CDC's Water, Food, and Environmental Health Services Branch, as well as guest authors, will share tools, resources, and guidance for environmental health practitioners. The conclusions of these columns are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily represent the official position of CDC.

People in the U.S. have access to some of the safest public drinking water supplies in the world. Environmental health professionals are one of the key groups that help make drinking water safe. They also help make water safe for communities that depend on private wells, residents in buildings with complex water systems, and swimmers who exercise regularly in pools. The Water, Food, and Environmental Health Services Branch within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention supports environmental health professionals with tools and resources to strengthen safe water for community health. This month’s column highlights some of these resources.
