Report a Concern

We usually find out about possible health or safety problems when someone from the community gets in touch with our Howard County Community Hygiene Program to let us know about the issue. When we get a report about something that seems unhealthy or unsafe, one of our Environmental Health Specialists will look into it to decide if we need to do something more.

If you have worries about the environment, like trash or mosquitoes, or if you're concerned about your health, reach out to us at 410-313-1773.
