Notice: Due to the COVID-19 crisis our physical office will be closed until further notice. We are available to answer questions via phone at 503-846-8722 or email at hhsehealth@co.washington.or.us.

The mission of Washington County Environmental Health is to protect and promote the health of the public by providing inspection and disease prevention services in the areas of food safety (including restaurants and other public food service facilities), public pools and spas, recreation facilities, mosquito control, smoke-free workplace enforcement, onsite wastewater management and drinking water.

We strive to enhance the quality of life in our county and community by educating, performing routine inspections and investigations, taking enforcement action when warranted, and interacting with state, federal and local agencies when appropriate.
