Connections between sanitation, public health and environment runs through the environmental knowledge, and provides to the men the understanding of it. Thus, the present study aimed to perform a diagnosis of the current environmental sanitation situation in Jutaí, Amazonas state, as a way of implementing an environmental education program as a tool for Environmental Health assurance in the city. The data were taken in available database of the Brazilian Institute of databases of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), the Ministry of Cities (National Secretariat of Environmental Sanitation) and in information research in municipal administrative sectors bodies. The physical and social characterization of the city was carried out through information provided by municipal administration and government. The guidelines of Environmental Education project will be proposed based on a Participation-Action Proposed Method for the Knowledge Construction - PROPAAC. As results, analysis presented that city water supply is underground, through pipe wells. Moreover, is remarkable that Jutaí has no sewage network. Solid waste gathering covers 90% of the city, held by a pickup truck purchased in 2012 and waste final disposal occurs in the open dumpsite. Thus, was observed that Jutaí is among the worst county of Amazonas state regarding to the sanitation system. Therefore, the effective implementation of environmental sanitation services and investments in environmental education programs in the city are proven necessary.
