environmental health


Our Cass County Environmental Health Program works to assess, correct, control and prevent harmful factors in the environment through education, regulation and inspection. We inspect restaurants, school cafeterias, special events, septic installations, and well installations.

The Environmental Health Program protects the health and environment of all residents by preventing disease through permit issuance, routine maintenance of environmental conditions and consultation services.
