An Environmental Sanitation Program includes regulating and inspecting restaurants, food stores, schools, daycare centers, foster homes, nursing homes, and private sewage disposal facilities. The Department works with federal, state and regional agencies to monitor and control water and air quality in the City. The department investigates and takes abatement actions to eliminate public health nuisances and hazards.

By monitoring, investigating and reporting communicable diseases, the Department is part of the State Health Department’s disease control program. Purchase of service agreements with Home Health Care and Community Services and Monadnock Family Services provide public health nursing and direct nursing care and mental health services.

Safe and Serv-Safe courses are being provided to food service workers in the community to enhance their education in food service. The University of New Hampshire Co-Operative Extension Service is co-sponsoring these programs with us.
