The Environmental Health Division preserves and promotes the health of the public and the physical environment. The Health District sanitarians inspect food service establishments (restaurants), day cares, public swimming pools, nails salons, beauty and barber shops, sanitary nuisances, housing complaints and blight.

We also inspect and approve septic systems and collect drinking and bathing water samples.
