We believe that a healthy community starts by creating a safe environment for our citizens to live in. We accomplish this through science-based risk assessment, policy development, monitoring and inspections, consultation, education, and enforcement of regulations designed to protect the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the places where we live, play, and work. While protecting human health is our primary objective, we also act in concert with many other agencies, programs, and organizations whose work helps to protect and enhance environmental quality.
Environmental Health areas include Air Quality, Body Art, Child Care Facilities, Public Health Land Use reviews, Retail Food Licensing, Food Safety, On-Site Wastewater Systems, Public Pools and Spas throughout El Paso County.
