Environmental Health focuses on minimizing or eliminating risk factors in the human environment where life and health are threatened. These programs seeks to do this through public education, licensing, inspection, investigations, and enforcement of public health laws.

The main categories for our programs are Community Health Programs, Facility Programs, Inspections, Pollutant Storage Tanks, and Water & On-Site Sewage.
