CHDs implement the operational environmental health aspects of this program component and perform other functions which include conducting sanitary surveys, plan reviews, evaluating water treatment and distribution systems, collecting and evaluating water samples, and investigating waterborne disease outbreaks, including conditions associated with bacterial/viral, chemical, and radiological contaminants.
