Environmental Health

Ararat Rural City’s Environmental Health Unit protects and promotes the public health and wellbeing of all communities within the municipality as well as our natural environments including the air we breathe and water we drink.  This is through a range of services designed to protect our communities and the environment.

Programs include food safety, the regulation of domestic waste water disposal, the investigation of infectious disease outbreaks, tobacco education and enforcement, as well as the investigation of public health nuisance complaints.
