Environmental Health staff work on multiple programs daily to keep the community healthy. Here we provide information on some of the many programs we cover along with rules and regulations guiding those programs. Our goal is to prevent illness through education, surveillance, and enforcement.

 

More in-depth information is provided on the left-hand side of the page for several more environmental health programs.

 

Swimming Pools
All public pool, spa or recreational water parks must obtain a valid operating permit from the local health authority. Environmental Health inspects these facilities and trains staff to minimize illnesses and injuries associated with contaminated or hazardous conditions in or around swimming pools.
