The Environmental Health Division (EHD) is charged with the responsibility of enforcement of pertinent California health laws, rules, regulations, and Shasta County Ordinances. This responsibility covers Shasta County as well as the three incorporated cities within the County.

While the traditional objectives of the EHD have focused on the control of microbiological hazards, new areas of potential public health concern have arisen. These areas involve solid and liquid wastes, water pollution, food contaminants, storage and handling of hazardous materials, and other problems of a completely different nature and magnitude than epidemic diseases of the past. The EHD has subsequently responded with significant changes in both mandates and corresponding objectives. In order to better clarify the EHD's responsibilities, the following overview was designed to provide a brief description of its organizational structure.
