Environmental Health Regulations

Proposed Health Code Changes:

The Missoula City-County Health Department is proposing to update the Missoula City-County Health Code.  Members of the public are invited and encouraged to participate in this process by learning more about why changes are necessary and making comments on the draft regulations. 

-Health Code Draft Changes (PDF)

-Regulation 1 (Wastewater Treatment and Disposal) Draft Changes including changes in response to public comment 10-09-09 (MOST CURRENT) (PDF)

-Regulation 1 Draft Changes without Appendicies 08-21-09 (PDF)

-Regulation 1 Draft Changes with Appendicies 08-21-09 (PDF)

-Regulation 5 (Drinking Water Well Protection) Draft Changes (PDF)

 Why updated/new regulations? An update to the Health Code is necessary as the last major update occurred in 2004, and the last minor update occurred in 2007.  As with any regulatory document, changes are periodically required as situations arise that do not fit within current rules, and language changes are needed to clarify sections of the rules.  Moreover, updates are needed to ensure certain components of the regulations remain relevant and practical to implement.


The public is invited to attend the Health Board meeting
