Migrant Housing

Environmental Health performs a pre-occupancy inspection of all migrant labor camps. The operator of the camp may apply for an inspection at the Environmental Health office which includes a fee of $50 for the first, and an addition $15 for each additional. The inspection includes a thorough review of the septic system to ensure that it is currently operating properly and sized accordingly for the proposed number of occupants. Also, the inspection requires a clean source of water, which may come from a public source or a private well. If a private well serves the labor camp, the water must be sampled and found to be free of total coliform and fecal coliform bacteria.
