Site Mitigation - Guidelines, Forms & Worksheets

Sites may become contaminated with toxic chemicals discarded-television_fysOVeAdthrough 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.
