Image of RaftRafting Program
To prevent the possible transmission of diseases and illnesses, the Rafting Program regulates food handling, water supplies, and sewage disposal by commercial rafting outfitters operating on the South Fork of the American River. El Dorado County Environmental Health is responsible for regulating commercial rafting companies because they cater to the public and offer food at the retail level.

The program includes plan review for compliance with the California Health and Safety Code and routine inspections of kitchens and campgrounds.
