WATER POLLUTION IDENTIFICATION & CORRECTION
The mission of the Water Pollution Identification & Correction program is to protect the public from waterborne illness and other water quality related hazards. Water that is polluted with fecal bacteria is our primary concern. Our job is to ensure that surface waters are safe and sanitary so you don't get sick when you swim in them or eat the shellfish. Our program is nationally recognized for its innovation and effectiveness. Our work on your behalf includes:
- Collecting water samples
- Investigating fecal bacteria sources of water pollution; and
- Taking steps to correct problems
The work of public health centers on prevention. This means an important part of our job is to ensure that you have the information necessary to do your part in helping to prevent water pollution.
The links in this section will give you a closer look at the work we do on your behalf.
