Sanitary Districts were established in England and Wales in 1875
and in Ireland in 1878. The districts were of two types, based on
existing structures: Urban sanitary districts in towns with
existing local government bodies.Rural sanitary districts in the
remaining rural areas of poor law unions.Each district was governed
by a sanitary authority and was responsible for various public
health matters such as providing clean drinking water, sewers,
street cleaning, and clearing slum housing.In England and Wales,
both rural and urban sanitary districts were replaced in 1894 by
the Local Government Act 1894 by the more general rural districts
and urban districts. A similar reform was carried out in Ireland in
1899 by the Local Government (Ireland) Act 1898.
