The Health Department's Environmental Health Service is committed to enhancing the quality of our environment, promoting a safe and healthy community for Lawrence County residents and surrounding areas. We seek to serve the needs of the rural community by providing essential environmental health services designed to ensure people can work, raise families, recreate, and grow without the threat of foodborne, or vector borne disease and to protect and preserve environmental resources such as earth, water, air, fauna, and flora. We work to improve the health of our environment by promoting collaboration and education.
