The Environmental Health Division works for you! We serve all residents of Snohomish County and our visitors by helping everyone avoid disease and injury from the things we come into contact with every day including: food, drinking water, waste water & septic systems, solid & hazardous waste, school and water recreation facilities. How can we help you?
Drinking Water The goal of the Water Program is the prevention of communicable disease and illness associated with drinking water from small public water systems and individual wells.
Food Safety The Snohomish Health District helps ensure the safety of the food you eat by training food workers, permitting and inspecting restaurants and other food establishments, and by following up on complaints of illness and other issues.
Hazardous Waste The Solid Waste and Toxics (SWT) Program investigates complaints and provides education to homeowners, schools and small businesses on storage, handling and disposal of hazardous waste.
Pest Control The Program provides individual consultation about the control of rodents and other public health pests, and distributes rodent control information in neighborhoods associated with improper solid waste handling, storage and disposal practices.
Restaurants Performing routine inspections of food establishments helps to assure the public will receive safe food and beverages. View inspection reports, a list of licensed caterers and current restaurant closures, if any.
