Environmental Health

The Environmental Health team protects and improves public health across the City of Ballarat. We inspect, monitor, educate and regulate facilities and the immediate environment to make Ballarat a great place to live. 

All local food businesses, accommodation businesses and beauty, hair, and skin penetration businesses are inspected and registered to ensure public health and safety. 

We can help you to negotiate unreasonable noise in your neighbourhood and issue permits for septic tank and waste water systems. 

We conduct routine inspections of all public pools, spas and associated facilities across the municipality to check water quality.


How can I make a complaint?

Call our Environmental Health team on 5320 5500 to make a complaint about conditions of food, health and accommodation premises or food safety and suitability.
