Environmental Health
The primary purpose of the Sweetwater County Environmental Health Department is to ensure that Sweetwater County Residents and visitors to Sweetwater County have clean and safe food and water supplies.  We strive to ensure that unsafe, unhealthy food and water never reaches the public.

This goal is accomplished through educational programs conducted for food service owners and operators by the Environmental Health Department and through a program of safety inspections on food suppliers, restaurants, school kitchens, grocery stores and public water systems.  Additionally, the Environmental Health Department operates an EPA Certified drinking water quality monitoring laboratory.

The Environmental Health Department, along with Community Nursing, Wyoming Department of Health and the Sweetwater County Health Officer, also monitors and acts upon the occurrence of illnesses that may adversely affect residents of the county.
