About Environmental Protection
The branch is comprised of nine, very technical, specialty programs: Cannabis Compliance and Enforcement, Medical Marijuana, Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention, Cross Connections and Water Pollution Control, Drinking Water, Land Use, Radiation Management, Recreational Waters, and Solid Waste Management. Although the programs are very diverse in nature, they share one common thread, the protection of public health as well as the environment.
