Land Use and Onsite Wastewater Treatment (Septic) System

Permit Application Fees:
Restructured and Increased

On June 27, 2017, the Monterey County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the Environmental Health Bureau’s (EHB) proposal to restructure and amend fee related to land use and onsite wastewater treatment (septic) system permit applications. Historically, the EHB’s Environmental Health Review Services, also informally referred to as Land Use, has relied heavily on contributions from the Monterey County’s General Fund to supplement the fees collected for land use permit applications in order to cover all costs associated with running the program. The fees approved in June 2017 are intended to adequately and proportionately recover program costs and reduce reliance on the County’s General Fund Contributions (GFC).

Before we could address the disparity of cost recovery and general fund reliance, the EHB completed a comprehensive fee study. It is important to note that the EHB began tracking staff time to individual projects in 2011, allowing us to accurately assess the average amount of time it takes to evaluate each kind of permit application. Based on the analysis, we’ve reorganized our land use permit fee, reducing the 88 existing permit categories down to just 5 types.

  • Type 1 - Compliance Review
  • Type 2 – Minor Plan Check or Report Review
  • Type 3 – Major Plan or Minor Discretionary Permit
  • Type 4 – Major Discretionary Permit
  • Type 5 – Deposit Projects

Onsite wastewater treatment system (“OWTS” or septic system) permit fees for repairs to existing systems have been adjusted to distinguish between tanks and dispersal fields.

The fees will become effective August 27, 2017. Click here to see the PowerPoint presentation that was given to the Board of Supervisors.
