The EH Division also permits sewage treatment systems and wells for homes in Ross County not serviced by public sewer and water utilities. EH Division responds to public health nuisance complaints, disease outbreak investigations regarding food illness, waterborne illnesses, or environmental issues. The EH Division conducts mosquito surveillance and control activities. You can reach the EH Division by calling 740-775-1158.
