Environmental Health

EH Office New Location


Environmental Health Division protects the public health through programs specifically designed to promote healthy environmental conditions and reduce risks associated with communicable disease. Our team of Environmental Health Specialists, Practitioners, Risk Assessors, and support staff achieve our goals for the following:

  • To identify and evaluate environmental sources and hazardous agents, and
  • To use surveillance, education, and enforcement to limit exposure to harmful physical, chemical, and biological agents in air, water, soil, food, and other settings that may adversely affect human health. 

Environmental health impacts families and communities in many ways. Review the latest food safety inspections for restaurants, research ways to repel and reduce disease carrying mosquitoes, and learn how to keep private drinking water safe after a flood.
