Wastewater Treatment Facilities
Environmental Health Review Services is responsible to ensure that all wastewater treatment facilities in Monterey County that discharge treated sewage effluent to the ground surface are in compliance with Monterey County Code, Chapter 15.23, SEWAGE TREATMENT AND RECLAMATION FACILITIES. The purpose of this chapter is to minimize the potential nitrate impact on groundwater supplies from land disposal by sewage treatment operations within Monterey County. All applicable facilities must maintain an annual operating permit with the Environmental Health Bureau and submit a quarterly report which demonstrates the net impact to the groundwater aquifers will not exceed that of effluent containing six mg/1 nitrate-nitrogen.
