Sanitary Nuisances

Citrus County Health Department

Sanitary Nuisances 

Sanitary Nuisances should be reported.  The type and severity of the nuisance will determine who to contact.  If there is a potential for injury to any person or property please contact Law Enforcement. 

The Environmental Health Section investigates alleged nuisance complaints and initiates enforcement action against those entities responsible.  Typical nuisances addressed by the health department include, but are not limited to failing septic systems, sewage leaks, the keeping of diseased animals which pose a threat to human health, and the creation, maintenance, or causing of any condition capable of breeding flies and mosquitoes.
