The Division of Environmental Health (DEH) provides primary prevention through a combination of surveillance, education, enforcement, and assessment programs designed to identify, prevent and abate the environmental conditions that adversely impact human health. The DEH enhances quality of life by protecting public health and safeguarding environmental quality, educating the public to increase environmental awareness, and implementing and enforcing Virgin Islands and federal environmental public health laws.
DEH protects and improves public health by preventing, minimizing and eliminating exposure to biological, chemical or physical hazards through a variety of regulatory activities, including permitting and inspecting businesses and public facilities. Environmental Health Inspectors also investigate reports of public health and safety menaces anywhere in the community including residential, commercial and industrial areas.
