Environmental Health Services
The Environmental Health Division of the Cattaraugus County Department of Health is charged with enforcement of the NYS Sanitary Code (10 NYCRR), NYS Public Health Law and Sanitary Code of the Cattaraugus County Health District. In addition, we issue permits and review engineering plans for many associations, businesses and activities, which potentially impact public health. All fees charged by the Environmental Health Division are established by the Cattaraugus County Legislature (Environmental Health Services Fees).
Below is an outline of the Environmental Health Division's services and responsibilities.
Our offices also provide services and education to residents regarding documented or potential environmental health hazards.
Accessing Environmental Health Records
Environmental Health records may be accessed by any member of the public by filing a "FOIL Request Form" with the Cattaraugus County Clerk's Office.
Please note that records concerning private property may be provided to the owner (or their designated representative) on request without filing this form.
