The division is comprised of six sections, Environmental Health Services, Public Water Supply, Public Health Pest Management, Shellfish Sanitation, On-Site Wastewater and Radiation Protection, with all but Radiation Protection having strong relationships between water and their areas of concern. The Office of Education and Training is also part of this division.
