Environmental Services Department Information

The Maricopa County Environmental Services provides essential, regional environmental services seeking to prevent and remove environmental health risks. 

The Department’s Environmental Health Specialists and Field Technicians are in the community every day making sure that among other things, food in all the eating and drinking establishments in the County is protected from contamination, that water supplies throughout the County are safe to drink, and that vector-borne illnesses and risks are minimized.
