Environmental Public Health


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
