The Imperial County Public Health Department, Division of Environmental Health, promotes a healthy, safe environment for all members of our community through the regulation of businesses and facilities, such as retail food facilities, small public water systems, private sewage disposal systems, solid waste facilities, public swimming pools, and local detention facilities.  Members of the Division participate in a chemical spill emergency response team to provide public health guidance during spill containment and cleanup. 

Through our Vector Control program we eliminate honeybee swarms that threaten the community and monitor for mosquito-borne disease agents and provide mosquito spraying and abatement whenever possible. Through education, we work to improve public understanding of environmental threats to community health and how to prevent communicable disease. And through our Animal Care and Control program, we service the unincorporated area of Imperial County covering cover more than 4,050 square miles of towns, desert areas, and agricultural lands. We provide animal control and rescue services in our service areas 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our animal care shelter offers a wide variety of potential pets for you to choose.
