Environmental Health & Preparedness
The Environmental Health Division consists of a staff of dedicated and professional people who work every day to assure the citizens of the Health District have a safe and healthy environment where they can live, work and play.
The Environmental Health Division is divided in three units.
- The Food Protection and Public Safety Unit inspects restaurants, grocery stores, campgrounds, swimming pools, schools and Tattoo and Body Piercing facilities to name a few.
- The Residential Services Unit inspects residential sewage treatment systems, small commercial sewage treatments systems, private water treatment systems and performs animal bite investigations. They also conduct mosquito control seasonally.
- The Emergency Response, Plumbing and Solid Waste Management Unit inspects plumbing systems, landfills, infectious waste generators and responds to environmental spills.

Educational classes for sewage system installers, food service operators, homeowners and others are provided many times through the year. Please contact us find out when and where!
The safety of the public and our staff is a priority for the Health District. To aid in identification, our Environmental Health inspection staff carry two forms of identification; a photo identification card and a metal badge. We encourage, and our inspecting staff welcome, the public to ask to see both forms of identification to prevent unauthorized access to a building, business, or home. No Health District personnel will ever treat an operator, business owner, or homeowner differently for asking for identification. Should someone arrive at your location and not be able to produce both forms of identification, please turn them away and call our office immediately.
