STD Environmental Health

The Bureau of Environmental Health consists of six departments:  Environmental Health, Safety and Management; Food and Consumer Safety; Healthy Homes, Environmental Consumer Management and Senior Care; Housing and Neighborhood Health; Mosquito and Rodent Control; and Water Quality and Hazardous Materials Management.  The Bureau is primarily responsible for enforcing laws and regulations protecting our health while ensuring a safe and healthy environment.  This is done through the inspection of residential and business properties; cleaning of vacant homes and lots; sampling residential wells, lakes, and streams; and providing services to eliminate pests that may cause disease.  The Bureau also accomplishes this mission through education by attending neighborhood meetings, volunteering for activities that improve the quality of life for neighborhoods, working with our most vulnerable populations – children and seniors, producing quarterly educational newsletters, and serving on committees with public and private partners throughout the community to achieve health and safety goals.
