The goal of the Environmental Health Section is to ensure the health and well-being of the citizens and visitors to Hampshire County, WV. We hope to accomplish this by educating the public, offering services, and by enforcing public health laws through the various permitted programs we offer and inspect. These programs include food sanitation, individual on-site sewage and water supplies, epidemiological surveillance (Rabies, West Nile Virus, La Cross Encephalitis, Lyme Disease), child care facilities, schools, manufactured home communities, recreational facilities, institutions, lodging facilities, care facilities, and body piercing/tattoo studios.
Other services we provide are investigation of complaints where public health laws may have been violated, water samples, radon testing, and technical assistance to developers and realtors. We also conduct educational programs for food service workers and individual sewage system installers and contractors.
