The Environmental Health Division provides services that prevent, protect and educate our community about potentially harmful effects and diseases in our environment. 

Environmental specialists called sanitarians ensure that restaurants and other food establishments meet local and state standards. They regulate residential and small flow sewage systems, tattoo and body piercing parlors, solid waste landfills, swimming pools campgrounds and manufactured home parks.

This division also monitors school environments, inspects public nuisances such as illegal sewage discharges, trash accumulations, rodent and other animal and insect disease vectors, and other potential public health problems.
