  • Beach Closure Lifted: MacAbee Beach

    The closure of MacAbee Beach in Monterey has been lifted. The beach was posted due to a report to Monterey County Health Department's Environmental Health Bureau that sewage had spilled into the bay. Samples taken on August 14, 2017 reveal indicator bacteria levels considered safe for recreational contact.

Welcome to Environmental Health Review

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 Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS or septic system permit applications) and oversees quarterly monitoring of effluent produced by sewage treatment and wastewater reclamation facilities.

EHRS works closely with the Resource Management Agency (RMA) Planning and Building Services 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.

Consultations and Requests for Service

Members of the EHRS team are available to answer questions and concerns you may have about land use and onsite wastewater regulations. However, due to limited resources, we must limit these consultations to 15-30 minutes in duration. If you require additional time with an EHRS team member, a Request for Service must be submitted with applicable fees to recover cost associated with their time to meet with you and conduct research.

To make the most of your conversation with an EHRS team member, please request a copy of EHB records related to your property before contacting them to schedule an appointment. A File Review Request form is available here and may be returned to 1270 Natividad Road or faxed to (831) 755-4880. Please note that it can take up to 10 business days for the files to be make available to you, though we make every effort to complete the request before then, so please plan accordingly.
