Report a Concern
Often the only way we are aware of potential health or safety risks is when a citizen contacts our Howard County Community Hygiene Program to report a concern. Upon receipt of a report of unhealthy or unsafe conditions, an Environmental Health Specialist will investigate to determine whether further action should be taken.
If you have concerns related to the environment (e.g. trash, mosquitos) or your health, contact us at 410-313-1773 or you may send an email to [email protected].

A nuisance is any condition that poses an actual or potential threat to health, or other health-related concern. If a nuisance condition exists, the Health Department may require the owner or occupant of a property to take action.
