Environmental Health Services


Beginning March 24, 2020 the Environmental Health Services Division will not be allowing walk-in services. Walk-in services include applying for permits, submitting plans, radon test kit pick-up, medication drop-off, FOIA requests, and property transfer form submissions. For your convenience, a drop box is available outside of the employee-only entrance located on the lower level of the building.

All office consultations are postponed until further notice,  and in most cases, we will be able to assist you via email at or over the phone at 586-469-5236.

 Due to this quickly evolving situation, our staff is currently being rotated while also keeping the office open, and this may delay requested services.

**If you are in need of emergency services for your onsite septic system or drinking water well, please call or email for prompt attention**
