The Environmental Public Health Division seeks to ensure safe facilities, proper water supply, and proper sewage disposal. Currently, there are 1,112 mobile home communities in Indiana. Each of these facilities is inspected by one of 10 field staff. Licenses to operate a mobile home community are for a period of four years.
