Environmental Health Programs
In addition to programs targeted at Child Health, Adult Health, and Women’s Health, the County Health Department also provides Environmental Health Programs. The environmentalists of Meriwether County can be seen throughout the county working to promote the health of citizens by permitting and inspecting septic tanks, local restaurants, and motels and collecting water samples. Environmentalists answer environmental complaints, direct the county rabies program, consult with other environmental agencies and promote child safety through car seat and bicycle helmet programs
