Public Health Response to Possible Crisis

In this assignment, you will submit a research plan for a public health department to investigate a possible crisis and recommend a public health response to this potential crisis.


Read through the following Centervale scenario and investigate the linkages between the health and illness problems in Centervale and the water supplies and waste disposal services. You must consider the full public health impact of the landfill situation and the water supply policies.
Centervale’s Landfill Facility


Centervale’s landfill facility has accepted, with the town’s approval, contaminated soil from the Middle Earth Energy Corporation. The landfill is located above ground and the operators plan on selling the soil to small farms in the county. The soil is known to be contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and lead that exceed the limits set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In the past, the EPA has discovered several leaks in the landfill’s liner.


The landfill is located above the town’s main aquifer, which supplies well water to 10,000 residents who live in either Simon or Diamond Townships. In Taylor Township, 750 residents use both well water and Metropolis water for small farms. The other residents only use well water.
Part 1: Research Plan

Design a detailed 4-page plan to research the impact of these services on the community’s health. Your plan must diagram or otherwise specify the steps from research to risk assessment and propose a plan for risk management. In your plan, include the following:

Identify the potential crisis and use that information to develop a clearly stated research objective.
Identify the data that must be collected and justify the purpose of collecting the data.
Identify possible collaborators in data collections.
Identify and justify the type of studies that need to be designed.
Predict any barriers to conducting research.
Use your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet to conduct research. Cite all the sources. Organize the information in a logical structure. Support your ideas with research information and reasons. Consider important alternatives and explain why you select a particular one. You may use your previous assignments for justification of your plan.

Part 2: Response Plan

Consider the full public health impact of the event and how your research will be applied. Design a 4-page detailed set of recommendations for action to remove or minimize risk to Centervale citizens, including the following:

Describe and justify the persons or agencies that must be contacted.
Identify possible collaborators in reducing risk, and explain what they can do to reduce the risk.
Justify the expense (i.e., time, labor, equipment, or money) each collaborator would incur by explaining how their action would result in benefits.
Describe and justify the type of monitoring that would be needed.
Predict any barriers to implementing your interventions.
Use your textbook, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet to conduct research. Cite all the sources. Organize the information in a logical structure.

Age of Oil

Question environmental science
As you know, our world is heavily dependent on oil. In Chapter 6 of Contemporary Environmental Issues, you have read that there is concern about the possibility of reaching a peak in oil production, while Chapter 8 of Contemporary Environmental Issues introduces a variety of possible alternative energy sources. Based on the concern that we may be running out of oil, describe at least two renewable alternatives to oil that are currently available and discuss the barriers that keep these alternatives from replacing oil as our primary means of energy.

Latroya Lavigne
One renewable alternative to oil is ethanol. Ethanol is comprised of corn, sugar, and switch grass of which 10 percent is mixed with gas making e10. E10 is a noteworthy substitute for conventional 100 percent fuel (Kopp, 2006). Kopp destinations the way that as ethanol winds up noticeably well known, generation will build which implies an expanded cost to buyers as one reason that ethanol still can’t seem to totally supplant fuel as an essential vitality source. Shale gas is another accessible option that is saved uniquely in contrast to different gasses and requires an even penetrating strategy to discharge the gas from rocks. Well shale gas has expanded underway, the technique for hydro fracturing use to discharge the gas has caused little tremors and the chemicals utilized as a part of the procedure may make water supplies perilous for utilization (Turk and Bensel, 2011). The administration assumes an essential part in safeguarding that the change to fuel options is a smooth one. One method for doing this is to offer natives government motivations and authorize strict ecological laws (Mingyuan, n.d.).

Hydropower – this alternative to oil uses the force of falling water to produce electricity. According to the website (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.hydropower has been used for many different purposes early as the Han Dynasty between 2002 BC and 9 AD. French engineer Benoit Fourneyron first used it to produce power in 1827.
In modern times one of the more common methods is to build a tall dam and the water behind the dam is diverted to a reservoir. In the internal workings of the dam, water flows down through the dam picking up speed and turning turbines. This in turn spins electromagnets near stationary coils of wire producing electrical current. This is a very clean form of energy that is renewed by rainfall. Once the dam is built it doesn’t require fuel to run helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is cheap to operate and maintain and it is proven and reliable. There are barriers that will keep it from totally replacing oil, specifically lack of areas to develop the dams needed to produce hydropower. The United States in particular has developed many of the areas suitable to this type of power.

Solar Power – this alternative to oil uses the Sun. It uses solar photovoltaic panels to convert sunlight into electricity. Another way to convert solar energy into electricity is through solar thermal of concentrating soar power systems. Mirrors are used to concentrate the sun’s rays on a tank or a pipe that contains fluid. This can produce steam that can be used to spin a turbine that generates electricity. Solar power has its limitation when trying to used it to replace oil completely. Depending on the season and where in the world you are the sun is only up for part of the day and in different intensities. It is also degraded by weather and dust.

According to the website (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. in the last decade solar have experienced an average annual growth rate of 68% and the cost to install solar on your home has dropped more than 70% since 2010. It is a growing trend that will help to cut into oil usage in the future if it keeps growing at that rate.

Experimental Design Methodology

Following the extensive literature review, the researcher must decide how he or she will address the questions being asked. This is done by formulating an experimental design that will allow for the objective testing of the hypotheses. Assume again that you want to test the interaction between farming and water quality. Based on background research and an extensive literature review, you have come up with the following hypothesis: If a lake is located directly adjacent to an agricultural field, then it will have higher levels of phosphorous in the water than lakes located more than 500 meters from an agricultural site.


Begin this assignment by reading the “How Do I Write the…Methods” as listed in your required readings. Then, read the scientific journal article from Macreadie, Hughes, and Kimbro (2013) paying particular attention to how the methods section is written.


Now you are to design an experiment to test the hypothesis. In one page or less, list your proposed study site, independent variable(s), dependent variable(s), experimental group, control group, and number of replicates. Then, write a two- to -four page methods section for your proposed design. You should use the knowledge learned through this week’s readings to formulate an accurate and concise experimental design. As explained in your readings, the methods should provide enough detail so that other scientists could repeat your work and verify your findings. Pretend that you have already completed the study and utilize the past tense throughout the section. Reading through the methods sections of the paper by Macreadie, Hughes, and Kimbro (2013) should provide you with a strong example of how a methods section should be written.

How to Measure and Use Leaf Area Index

Prepare: Measuring leaf area is an important method in plant ecology and agricultural science. Leaf area index (LAI) is one of the most widely measured variables used to describe plant canopies and plant growth rates. In the past, measuring LAI was destructive because every leaf within a given area needed to be collected and measured. Today, there are a variety of simple and advanced methods that can be used to non-destructively estimate LAI.
Review: View the following videos and websites to learn about how LAI is measured and how it can be used in ecological, agricultural, and environmental studies.
Write: Your post will be based on the alphabetical order of your last names and should be between 250-300 words.
Everyone: Explain LAI and provide two examples of how it can be used in environmental research and management. Reference two scholarly or credible sources in addition to your textbook to develop your post. You are encouraged to review the recommended materials this week to help you develop knowledge on the methods and applications of LAI.
If your last name begins with the letters A through L, then review the video on measuring leaf area with Adobe Photoshop or Image J, and summarize the key points of the method to the class using your own words. Indicate the benefits and limitations of using this method. Use supporting examples to illustrate your points.
