The Placer County Conservation Program (PCCP) is a County-proposed solution to coordinate and streamline the permitting process by allowing local entities to issue state and federal permits. The proposed PCCP is a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) under the Federal Endangered Species Act and a Natural Community Conservation Plan (NCCP) under the California Natural Community Conservation Planning Act.
Our mission is to protect the health and safety of the community from potential hazards present in our everyday environment. Food, drinking water, garbage, sewage, and hazardous chemicals, are just some of what we monitor on a daily basis.
