The Environmental Health Division's mission is to protect the health, prevent disease and promote health for all persons in Del Norte County. 

Environmental Health is the prevention, preservation, and improvement of environmental factors affecting the health and safety of our community.

The Environmental Health Division is charged with the responsibility of enforcement of pertinent California health laws, rules, regulations, and Del Norte County Ordinances.

The common title of our staff is "Health Inspector" but the official title is "Environmental Health Specialist".

The State of California mandates that only qualified trained professionals may perform the duties within the scope of this field.  Our Environmental Health Specialists have backgrounds in the sciences including chemistry, physics, biology, microbiology, mathematics and environmental health.
