Environmental Health - About Us
Volusia County Environmental Health seeks to protect, promote, and enhance the health and well-being of the public and the environment through the application of scientific principles, education, and environmental health laws and regulations.
Environmental Health Specialists perform food hygiene, group care, tattoo, body art, mobile home park and tanning facility sanitation inspections; conduct on-site soil evaluations and inspections of septic systems; perform bacteriological and chemical sampling of public and private wells; ensure the proper handling and disposal of biomedical waste; conduct zoonotic disease and rabies investigations, and public swimming pool sanitation inspections. Environmental Health Specialists also monitor and permit public drinking water systems and perform well surveillance sampling.
An equally important function of Environmental Health is to provide timely advice and information to the public, businesses, and other governmental agencies on public health issues and concerns. This is especially critical when the health of Volusia County residents and visitors is threatened during emergencies such as hurricanes, fires, floods, hazardous materials incidents, sewage spills, and outbreaks of disease.
