Environmental Health

Environmental Health is a critical component of the health and well-being of our community. The Environmental Health Protection Section provides services aimed at assuring that the basic ingredients of a vibrant community - its land, food and recreational waters - are safe and healthy. Programs under the Environmental Health Protection Section designated by county ordinance include:

  • Food Protection
  • Onsite Sewage Disposal
  • Recreational Waters (pools, spas, spraygrounds, etc.)
  • Vector Control
The Clay County Public Health Center also inspects lodging establishments through a participation agreement with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
