The board must also include representatives from the respective county health departments, health care professionals and providers, and elected officials. The board shall identify the community environmental health needs and types of services which should be provided.
(3) As used in this section:
(a) “Low-income community” means a contiguous grouping of residences with a significant portion of occupants who have a family income equal to or below 100 percent of the most recent federal poverty level and who are exposed to multiple sources of environmental contamination.
(b) “Contaminated site” means any contiguous land, surface water, or groundwater areas that contain contaminants that may be harmful to human health or the environment and includes federal Superfund sites and state or federally designated Brownfield areas.
