The Environmental Resources Department oversees the Milk & Dairy Industry as follows:

  • Inspects market milk ("Grade A") and manufacturing grade ("Grade B") dairy farms for conformance with quality and sanitation requirements - See our Dairy Farm Water Protection Handbook
  • Samples milk at the producer level and conducts an analysis in our Public Health Lab, for bacterial content and the presence of contaminants, to ensure safety.
  • Routinely collects samples of finished products from retail outlets and analyzes for compliance with standards.
  • Investigates consumer complaints and follows up with appropriate actions.
  • Condemns milk and milk products that may be unfit or unsafe for human consumption.
