Healthy Environments
healthy activities

We are all responsible for creating healthy environments - at home, work and play.

Environmental Public Health ensures that our drinking water, restaurants, homes, pools and lodging facilities are safe. We also monitor for hazards related to outdoor recreation, prepare for health risks related to climate change, and protect people from unnecessary exposure to radiation.


Oregon’s Public Health Division is working to understand the potential health impacts of climate change and to prepare our communities to protect the health of Oregonians.
