  •   Monterey County Declares Hepatitis A Outbreak Among Homeless Population

    Since early 2017, the San Diego and Santa Cruz County Health Departments have been investigating local hepatitis A outbreaks among individuals who are homeless or use illicit drugs. Unfortunately, disease levels in Monterey County have now reached outbreak levels. Since October 2017, hepatitis A has been diagnosed in 9 individuals with a history of homeless in Monterey County. These individuals did not travel outside of Monterey County so are assumed to have become ill due to transmission within the homeless and illegal drug use communities in Monterey County.

EHRS - Permit Process Guide

This brochure is designed to give the general public an introduction to the permit process involving Environmental Health Review Services (EHRS) of the Environmental Health Bureau (EHB). This guide gives you an overview and can help you successfully navigate Environmental Health planning and construction permit review as well as onsite wastewater treatment system permit processes.

EHRS - Planning Permits

Planning permit applications are routed by RMA-Planning Department to EHB for review and recommendations. The overall planning permit process is very well detailed on the Planning Department’s website. When contemplating a project it is important to speak with a land use technician before contacting EHB to determine what the site development requirements are and what the zoning will allow on your project site.

Find information on your current planning or construction project status by visiting the County of Monterey Resource Management Agency Online Construction Permit Information Website.
