Updating Chapter 10.72 of the Monterey County Code, Desalinization Treatment Facilities
The expected Board date to review the draft ordinance on June 18. Please check back on this website for the draft ordinance when available.
The Environmental Health Bureau (EHB) is responsible for assuring that any desalination treatment facility can produce safe, potable and reliable water without creating other public health risks. A county permit for construction of a desalination treatment facility is required to be obtained from the Director of Environmental Health prior to securing any building permit from the Resource Management Agency (RMA) for such a facility. Also, a permit for operation of a desalination treatment facility must also be obtained from the Director of Environmental Health before distributing any water from the desalination treatment facility. These requirements are listed in Chapter 10.72 of the Monterey County Code. On May 15, 2018, the EHB received direction from the Board initiating amendments to Chapter 10.72 of the Monterey County Code regarding the permitting and operational requirements of a desalinization treatment facility.
The proposed changes to Chapter 10.72 will:
- Clarify the regulatory scope of the ordinance.
- Clarify ambiguous language in the provisions of Chapter 10.72 relating to ownership and operation of desalination treatment facilities by a “public entity”.
- Clarify technical, managerial, and financial criteria.
Below you will find more background information regarding these actions. EHB plans on returning to the Board of Supervisors in the Fall or Winter of 2018 to follow up on Board direction. A draft of the proposed changes is currently being reviewed by County Counsel and will also be posted on this webpage when completed.
