Water Quality and Quantity
Simply put, we can’t live without it. Clean water supports all living things, and healthy water makes for a healthy community. NDDH inspects private wells and works with agencies responsible for public water supplies to assure that our water is free of harmful bacteria, chemicals and pollutants.
Subsurface Sewage Disposal
The Connecticut Public Health Code Technical Standards serve as the regulatory guideline for subsurface sewage disposal. Site investigations are conducted and recorded, septic plans are reviewed, permits to construct are issued, and all necessary inspections of the septic system are conducted by NDDH sanitarians according to these technical standards.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since 1900, life expectancy in the United States has increased by approximately 40 years. Only seven of those years can be attributed to improvements in disease care while the rest are the result of improved prevention efforts (such as immunizations) and improved environmental conditions, including sanitation and water. The link between the nation’s health and the environment is unmistakable.
