Environmental Health Services (EHS) promotes public health and protects the environment of Vanderburgh County citizens. To accomplish this goal the section utilizes practices and procedures to ensure federal, state and local laws are met and offers education to residents to prevent future hazards. These investigations can be initiated from reports filed by citizens or other local, state or federal agencies. Citations may be issued and corrective actions are initiated because of these investigations.  Court actions may be a part of this process.  Citizens with any environmental concern should contact the environmental section. Reports may be made anonymously.
