Environmental Health (Sanitation, Food Permits)

What is the Environmental Health Program?

Mission Statement:    We protect and promote the health and well-being of Hawaii’s residents and visitors.  We accomplish this with professionalism, integrity and fairness through education and regulation in areas of food safety, disease, prevention, community sanitation and emergency response.

The Environmental Protection and Health Services Section of the Maui District Health Office provides direct services in Sanitation, Vector Control and Food Safety Education.  Services include food permits and inspections; public swimming pools, milk safety, tattoo and mortuary inspections; rodent and mosquito consultations and monitoring of nuisance vectors and new vector borne diseases.  A full background on the program responsibilities and available forms can be obtained at http://hawaii.gov/health/environmental/sanitation 

This section also administers various environmental health programs assigned to the island such as Wastewater, Clean Air, Safe Drinking Water, and Food and Drug.
