Environmental Health seeks to protect public health through the application of regional surveillance of public health risk factors, risk reduction programs, inspection/evaluations and issuance of licensing/construction permits in the areas of food service, sewage disposal, drinking water, campgrounds, swimming pools, body art facilities, surface water, vector monitoring and Household Hazardous Waste reduction/education activities.
