Food Facility Stormwater Inspection Program
The Environmental Health Division is implementing a new stormwater inspection program at regulated food facilities. The program is only for the unincorporated areas and does not apply to facilities within the incorporated areas of the Cities of Auburn, Colfax, Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville or the Town of Loomis.
The data was extracted from our permitting database and mapped using a Geographic Information System.
(GIS). It is a very useful tool for mapping and data management by address of a location. This functionality, however, does retain some challenges and restrictions imposed by the original permit data and mapping by address.
We then compared the current location data from our permitting database and GIS, to the Assessor’s database to determine if sites were in or out of the unincorporated area. If you have a dispute about the location, please contact our Consumer Protection Team immediately, to assure proper assessment of your facility’s location. (530) 745-2300.
When Environmental Health sent out the invoices for facilities involved in the Stormwater Program, a memo titled
"New Stormwater Program and Fee" was also sent. Below are two versions of that memo.

The County has chosen to implement the Stormwater program by developing ordinances and protocols that are Countywide for the unincorporated areas. Environmental Health already has inspectors going out to the facilities, so travel time is not assessed.

Placer County Environmental Health is conducting these inspections in conjunction with inventoried food facilties, and in partnership with Public Works' Stormwater Quality Program. Here you will find information on what Stormwater is about, useful brochures, construction requirements, and many more ...
