Site Mitigation - Guidelines, Forms & Worksheets
Sites may become contaminated with toxic chemicals through illegal dumping or disposal, from leaking underground storage tanks, or through industrial or commercial activities. These sites may pose a hazard to the public health & safety and the environment. Therefore, the investigation and cleanup of these contaminated sites must be conducted under the supervision of the hazardous materials branch. At a minimum, any investigative work shall require a work plan, site safety plan, application for site mitigation and work plan review and a fee. Allow seven working days for processing. Incomplete or unapproved submittals will be returned. Approval of the work plan must be obtained before any work is started. A letter of closure may be written by the Monterey County Environmental Health Bureau based on the findings of the investigation.

The guidelines cover four phases of work that must be accomplished:

- Verification of monitoring.
Other requirements are also discussed in the Guidelines for Site Mitigation.
