Environmental Health Department

As part of the Public Health Department, Environmental Health (EH) is focused on controlling environmental factors that impact human health and environment (food, water, and air). EH staff conducts routine inspections and complaint investigations related to health and sanitation in all food establishments, child care facilities, and schools. Environmental Health oversees the permitting, installation and use of onsite wastewater treatment systems (septic systems), protecting drinking water resources and surface waters from pollution. In addition, the Environmental Health department responds to complaints concerning swimming pools, public accommodations, mobile home parks, campgrounds and other recreational facilities.

The Fall Food Safety Forum will be held on 9/28/17 from 9:00am to 10:30am at Sauce on the Blue 358 Blue River Pkwy #H Silverthorne, CO. 

The purpose of the meeting is to develop better communication between environmental health, operators and consumers on food safety topics. These forums are held twice per year, spring and fall, and are not one-way communications or trainings, rather an open discussion.

Proposed Agenda

All retail food operators are encouraged to attend. Pass this notice on to anyone who may be interested, including the public.

Please RSVP   and include any topics you would like to discuss. Thank you for your partnership,
