The Board of Health, under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, ensures that all state regulations pertaining to public health are enforced. The Board may also promulgate local regulations that it deems to be in the best interest of public health.
The Board of Health employs a Professional Engineer/Agent to review all plans concerning stormwater runoff, drainage, and septic system design as they pertain to subdivisions, commercial property, and private homes. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) gives local boards of health the authority to draft and enforce regulations to enhance Title 5, private wells, and drainage.
The daily activities are coordinated by the Administrative Agent. The routine services and compliance activities are performed by a Health Agent, a Public Health Nurse, and the Inspector of Animals.
