Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services, Division of Environmental Health Division (DEH) staff will be hosting three public workshops over the next three months to help evaluate the county’s Local Area Management Plan (LAMP).
The purpose of the workshops is to give participants an opportunity to evaluate the LAMP’s water quality assessment program so staff can better understand the performance of existing Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS) and consider any negative effects of OWTS on our groundwater and surface water resources.
Required every five years, the evaluation report will be submitted to the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.
The key to a thorough assessment is consideration of the community experience. To support this effort, DEH is planning three public comment workshops this year, including an Online Preliminary Workshop scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. (Registration via Eventbrite)
Information about additional in-person workshops in June and July will be announced once the times and locations have been finalized.
The latest workshop information can be found on DEH’s Public Announcements webpage. If you have any questions regarding the upcoming public workshops, please contact DEH Land Use Program staff at 707-445-6215 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
