Environmental Health

The Trumbull Health Departments (THD) focuses on the health interrelationships between our residents and their environment. We are committed to promoting the health and well-being of our citizens and ensuring a safe and healthful environment. As a local health agency, we are responsible for enforcing the public health code of the Connecticut Department of Public Health.

The THD promotes and maintains high environmental health and safety standards for our residents through the administration of many programs. Much of our work emphasizes prevention of the spread of diseases, and we work diligently to prevent potential health hazards before those situations can escalate to a level causing great concern.

Our goal to have a positive and visible impact in our community in areas such as:

  • Day Care Inspections
