Environmental Health Programs
Lapeer County Environmental Health staff are charged with protecting the public from environmental contaminants in food, water, sewage and reducing soil infiltration in our local waterways. Staff do this by using State and Local regulations to permit, inspect and/or license body art establishments, campgrounds and childrens camps, food service facilities, swimming pools, drinking water supplies, adult foster and child day care facilities, septage hauling trucks, and building projects near surface water. Staff respond to environmental complaints and consult with residents about water quality, sewage and indoor air quality issues.
General Environmental Health Programs
Staff inspect body art establishments, campgrounds, children camps and public swimming pools that are license by the State of Michigan. Adult foster care facilities and child day care programs are also inspected for health and safety violations, but the Michigan Dept. of Human Services holds the license.
Staff do not complete inspections for bedbugs or air quality including mold. We do have radon test kits for sale. The following links are solid information and resources:
