Environmental Public Health

Environmental Public Health Division

The Environmental Public Health Division works to protect public health by ensuring the integrity of the food supply, clean drinking water, neighborhood cleanliness, and hazard-free workplaces. These objectives are accomplished through the following activities:

  • Securing compliance with State rules on food safety and public drinking water through surveillance, monitoring and inspections
  • Permitting retail food establishments
  • Responding to citizen complaints on food, water supply and neighborhood nuisances
  • Abating neighborhood nuisances such as abandoned and unsafe buildings through owner notification and demolition
  • Reducing lead poisoning through screening children, case managing children with lead poisoning and removing lead-based paint from qualifying homes
