Environmental Health

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.

EH oversees the permitting, installation and use of onsite wastewater treatment systems (septic systems), protecting drinking water resources and surface waters from pollution.

EH also responds to complaints concerning swimming pools, public accommodations, mobile home parks, campgrounds and other recreational facilities.

Food Safety Excellence


As a part of National Food Safety Month, each year Environmental Health recognizes retail food establishments that demonstrate Exceptional Commitment to Food Safety.  See the Award winners from 2017 and 2018. Due to COVID and a restructuring of Colorado's inspection system in 2020, this program has been on pause. Summit County and CDPHE are working to roll out a Statewide Excellence Program for the entire state in 2023. View Inspection Reports for local restaurants.
