Environmental Health

Message From Ray King, District Director of Environmental Health:ray.jpg
Exactly what is environmental health? Most people are surprised to learn of all the different things we do. We enforce regulations but we also provide many services to the public. We are part of public health but overlap with areas of environmental protection. You might find us inspecting a restaurant, giving advice to a homeowner on asbestos or lead paint, investigating a complaint, issuing a septic system permit, interviewing a victim of West Nile, reviewing a subdivision, sending off the head of a raccoon for rabies testing, and many more activities. We’ve come a long way from the days when most of environmental health concerned simple sanitation.
