Environmental Health Programs
The mission of the Egyptian Health Department Environmental Health Programs is to prevent the occurrence of infectious disease within Gallatin, Saline, and White counties by performing comprehensive food protection, private sewage, potable water, solid waste and vector control programs. All programs are conducted in accordance with local and county ordinances and state statutes.
The Food Service Program performs activities to identify, reduce and whenever possible, eliminate factors which may cause food-borne illness. This is achieved by permitting and performing routine inspections of all permanent, mobile and temporary food service establishments within the three counties.
Solid Waste Management is responsible for ensuring the proper storage, handling and disposing of solid waste to eliminate vectors, nuisances and the transmission of disease organisms.
