Recovering from the River, Carmel and Dolan fires continues to be on the top of our minds. We have heard from several residents with concerns about the start of the rainy season and potential issues within the burn scar areas. This webinar is a good opportunity to learn about what you can do to prepare for the winter storm season.

The Phase I cleanup of household hazardous waste and the debris removal process has been overseen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to remove items and substances known to be a threat to human and environmental health. The USEPA teams are working on completing the Phase I process. Next month, property owners may move into Phase II. However, for the Phase II cleanup, owners are required to engage in the Government Program or hire properly licensed and certified contractors and consultants to complete cleanup in the Private Program. The Government Sponsored Debris Removal Program is anticipated to begin field work the first of December. Please note that ALL Property Owners with wildfire debris must submit a Right-of-Entry Permit OR Opt-Out Waiver to the Resource Management Agency by December 15, 2020 @ 5:00pm.
Due to the high volume of calls and questions, Monterey County has now set up a Debris Removal Hotline to answer all questions regarding debris removal and to direct people to the appropriate agencies. If you have questions, please call 831-796-6472
