Environmental Health

Environmental health strives to prevent injury and illness and promote health by evaluating and mitigating environmental sources and hazardous agents. This is done through education and enforcement of environmental laws. The Washington Ozaukee Public Health Department currently licenses and regulates retail food, hotels/motels, bed & breakfasts, public swimming pools, campgrounds, and body art in Washington County. Programs provided in both Washington and Ozaukee Counties include sampling and inspecting small public drinking water systems, beach monitoring, and providing radon information and test kits.
