Lake County Board of Health: Yesterday & Today

Originally formed to protect citizens from the smallpox epidemic, local Boards of Health have been serving Montana communities since as early as 1879. They soon began addressing a variety of communicable diseases such as polio, tuberculosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.  Today’s public health statutes go beyond communicable disease to include other conditions of public health importance such as non-communicable diseases and injuries. MCA 50-1.

Communities continue to be served by local Boards of Health that work closely with agencies like the Montana Department of Health and Human Services, Montana Department of Environmental Quality, and tribal health organizations to help ensure the health and safety of Montana’s citizens.  MCA 50-2.

The Lake County Board of Health oversees all facets of the Lake County Health Department including Public Health, Environmental Health and Solid Waste. The Board meets bi-monthly to discuss current public health topics such as communicable disease, emergency preparedness, wastewater regulations, and family health programs and also to review variance requests from county wastewater treatment system regulations.
