Environmental Health & Safety

It is the mission of the Putnam County Health Department to protect our community from environmental safety hazards. Our Environmental Health Specialists help local businesses and community members secure required permits to operate and go on-location weekly to inspect businesses and ensure they are meeting West Virginia’s health standards for housing, water, food, sewage, and the Clean Indoor Air Regulation of Putnam County.
