Business Assistance

The District is charged with protecting the public health and the local environment. We successfully accomplish this goal by working with our customers: the businesses we regulate and the public we serve. The Business Assistance Program is designed to further this cooperative relationship by helping businesses access the variety of resources we offer. For information or assistance, call the Business Assistance Line (805) 979-8050, or e-mail [email protected].
