- Environmental Health
You may not realize it, but environmental public health is a part of your everyday life, from the food we eat to the water we drink. Jefferson County Public Health works to prevent, investigate and respond to health threats from environmental sources, such as our air, water, land, the food we eat and the domestic and wild animals and insects we encounter. Jefferson County Public Health collaborates with the Planning and Zoning Department to provide Environmental Health Permit Searches on food establishments and on-site wastewater (septic systems).
