At the Eagle County Environmental Health, our mission is to safeguard the health and well-being of our community by protecting consumers, the air we breath, and the water we drink through environmental health measures. Through education, oversight, and collaboration, we are committed to applying the environmental health laws set forth by Colorado Revised Statutes to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all visitors and residents to work, live, and play.

Our core service areas include retail food establishment safety, licensed child care facilities, school health and sanitation, and on-site wastewater treatment (aka septic's).
