Drinking Water & Wells
The Snohomish County Health Department's drinking water program helps ensure that an adequate and safe, potable source of water is available to all proposed residences before construction.
Beaches, Lakes & Rivers
The Snohomish County Health Department protects the environment and water quality of the county’s lakes, rivers, and the Puget Sound waterfront.
Floods, earthquakes, and other disasters in Snohomish County can damage or contaminate your well, so it is important to be aware of health and safety precautions.
Pools & Spas
Swimming or playing in water that is contaminated or high in natural toxins can cause illness, which is why the Snohomish County Health Department regulates pool water quality and safety features in Snohomish County. We conduct routine inspections at parks, hotels, athletic clubs, apartment complexes, and schools.
Regular water tests are recommended for all household water systems. Owners of private wells should test their drinking water based on these recommendations.
