Over the next several weeks, many more residents have filed complaints with the local health department demanding something be done to help monitor the levels and protect t heir health. Please use this scenario to set up your paper (i.e. you can write as though you are a part of the PH team that is investigating this, you can set the name of the town to make it more realistic…have fun with this and tell the story of this scenario while still answering all of the questions in the directions). Please be aware that the questions that are asked in the directions should NOT be used as subtitles of your paper. Create short titles (stick to a single line if possible) to use that capture the essence of the questions.
