What Does Environmental Health Do?

The Environmental Health Program (EHP) oversees the regular health inspections for campus restaurants, markets, food sales, and swimming pools to ensure that they maintain the highest standards of safety and sanitation.  EHP also oversees the campus drinking water lines to ensure the tap water supply to campus is clean and sanitary.

Additionally, EHP can assist with questions about campus pests and health effects of pest management.
