Environmental Health Services

The Municipality of Anchorage Environmental Health Division is responsible for two primary programs: Food Safety and Sanitation and Air Quality

The Food Safety and Sanitation Program permits, regulates and inspects over 2,000 public facilities in the Municipality of Anchorage. The public facilities we regulate include food establishments, school kitchens, childcare kitchens, public pools and spas, beauty salons, barbershops, habilitative care facilities, and Correctional Community Residential Centers (CCRCs). We also regulate noise, smoking, pests in rental housing, the application of pesticides and oversee the delivery of training and testing for the Anchorage Food Worker Card.

The Air Quality Program is responsible for monitoring and reporting levels of air pollutants, such as carbon monoxide and fine particles, within the municipality of Anchorage. The Program also responds to local air quality complaints and is responsible for various air quality projects.

Do you have a complaint or concern about a public facility regulated by Food Safety and Sanitation? Timely reporting is key for a successful investigation. Responding to complaints and concerns is a priority for the Food Safety and Sanitation Program. If you believe you may have become ill as a result of eating food from a public food facility such as a restaurant or from swimming at a public swimming pool or spa in the Municipality of Anchorage please call our office at 343-4200 or for weekend or after hours, call (800) 478-0084..
