Environmental Health Review Services (EHRS) serves as the liaison between the Environmental Health Bureau (Bureau) and the Resource Management Agency (RMA) and is responsible for review of land use projects and building permits to ensure conformance with regulations where the Bureau is the oversight agency. Additionally, this program reviews, inspects, and approves Supply and Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) and provides annual inspections of sewage treatment and wastewater reclamation facilities.
EHRS works closely with the Resource Management Agency (RMA) Planning and Building Inspection Departments as well as the various sections in Environmental Health. All subdivision applications and single family dwelling proposals are reviewed to ensure adequate water supply and wastewater disposal feasibility. Similar evaluation is completed for any commercial project within the County of Monterey’s jurisdiction. EHRS collaborates with RMA to ensure environmental impacts from development are mitigated or avoided. EHRS staff investigates public complaints regarding Onsite Wastewater Treatment System failure, overflow or odor.
