Environmental healthEnvironmental Health Program

Sanitation is a way of life.  It is the quality of living that is expressed in the clean home, the clean farm, the clean business and industry, the clean neighborhood, and the clean community.  Being a way of life it must come from within the people; it is nourished by knowledge and grows as an obligation and an ideal in human relations.
The Environmental Health Division works diligently behind the scenes to assure and improve sanitation conditions in restaurants, public swimming pools, sewage disposal, used oil recycling, underground storage tanks, and other vital but little-noticed areas. 
We work constantly to assure that you; our neighbors, family and friends, can enjoy wholesome foods in restaurants by educating food handlers in safe handling, preparation and service of the foods we all enjoy.  We work to assure that sewage is handled so it cannot have contact with humans; and properly treated in the earth so only pure water returns to the water table.  We work to educate swimming pool operators so that you and your children swim in clean water free of disease and other hazards.  We test drinking water in our lab so that you know that the water at your tap, from your town, is clean and safe.
We stand ready at all times to assist you and your neighbors, in keeping our communities clean and free of nuisances and threats to public health.  We train and practice on emergency deployment of our Mass Vaccination Clinic to respond to disasters, both natural and man-made, so that we will be prepared to serve when called.
