Pool, Tanning & Tattoo Facility Inspections

Tanning Beds & Tattoo Parlors

Local Inspectors make sure that the equipment used in the tanning beds meet health and safety guidelines, and that the operators are knowledgeable in the procedures to help protect the patrons from skin damage.  

Tattoo Parlors are checked for sterilization and sanitary conditions. With the increase in blood borne diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C, it is imperative that these operations are following strict public health safety rules and regulations.


Swimming Pools & Spas

Ever wonder why there is so much chlorine in swimming pools and spas? Because we require it to protect people from transmitting and contracting disease through the water. The Environmental Health Department conducts a comprehensive inspection of all public swimming pools and spas in the three county area. Items such as water quality, disinfection, testing, construction, safety and lifeguard certification are all scrutinized on an annual basis to provide a safe environment for the public.

Food Service Inspections

Food Service inspections are performed by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals for Carroll and Greene Counties, and by The Shelby County Environmental Health Department for Crawford County.
