    Final Environmental Assessment Report Shows DPHS Campus Safe

    The environmental assessment investigation at Dos Pueblos is now completed, and no health concerns were found.

    Geoyntec collected indoor air samples from classrooms and offices and outdoor air samples from various parts of the campus during the winter break in December as part of the environmental assessment.

    Researchers gathered soil samples from the interior of the campus and surrounding school property.

    Geosyntec also tested for electromagnetic fields and radon throughout the campus. Once all of the samples were collected, they were sent to laboratories to be tested, and the results were delivered to District officials.

    The final results confirmed the preliminary analysis in February by Santa Barbara County Public Health that showed the campus was safe.

    In addition, the California Cancer Registry said it could not find a common link or cluster of cases among the cancer staff report.

    “We thank Geosyntec, Santa Barbara County Public Health, and the California Cancer Registry for their assistance in this health assessment. Thankfully, the health assessment found nothing alarming on the Dos Pueblos campus. We care about our employees and will always keep their safety and the safety of our students as a top priority,” said Dr. Hilda Maldonado, Superintendent.

    Geosytnec staff met with DP staff members Tuesday to review the report and answer questions.
