The Fairfield Department of Health (FDH) recently completed its Accreditation Site Review by the Public
Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). The FDH employees have been working towards this for over three
years. It has been a tremendous accomplishment for the employees of the health department to reach
this point and have the site visit.

All employees of the health department assisted with this process. The Accreditation team took the
lead and attended the site review representing the health department through that process.

Next Steps: The site visit review team has two weeks to submit their report to the PHAB board. The
PHAB board will decide on March 21st (accreditation or an action plan). If we get an action plan, we will
have 90 days to submit the plan and then a year to implement the plan.
Fairfield Department of Health Accreditation Team
The Fairfield Department of Health has been conducting MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer systems) program inspections since Fall 2016. The MS4 program is part of the U.S. EPA's effort to preserve, protect, and improve the nation's water resources from polluted storm water runoff. All discharging aerators in Violet township and Liberty township sections 6 and 30R are required to be inspected at least once during every MS4 five-year permit period. The current permit began in 2015 and will end in 2019. This summer/fall, aeration systems on the following roads are being inspected: Ault Rd, Fairlawn Dr., Mamie Dr., Milnor Rd., Pickerington Rd., Refugee Rd., Toll Gate Rd., and Wagram Rd. in Violet Township. There will be a $32.00 charge for each inspection to be billed to the homeowner after the inspection is completed. If you live on one of these roads, have a discharging aeration system, and currently have a contract with a registered service provider, we do not need to inspect your system. We just need a copy of your service contract to verify it is current. This information can be e-mailed to kelly.spindler@fairfieldcountyohio.gov or contact the Fairfield Department of Health at 740-652-2800. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have concerning this program.
