Environmental Health

Environmental Health (EH) ensures documentation of identifiable environmental health threats and enforcement of appropriate Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon Administrative Rules, and city and county ordinances regarding environmental health and safety.

Environmental Health conducts a variety of inspections of licensed facilities each year.

In addition, EH receives and investigates public complaints regarding environmental health hazards; investigates reported cases of food-borne illness, waterborne illness and other non-communicable and communicable diseases; provides information on diseases and vectors to public; and works with other governmental agencies in conducting epidemiological or environmental investigations.

EH surveys public water systems in the county to ensure compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act.
