Phase II hazardous debris removal 


County-led program

Plans are being developed by the County for debris removal programs for impacted property owners. Phase II includes removal of fire related debris from affected properties so they are prepared for rebuilding.  Right of Entry (ROE) forms required for this County-led debris removal program can be found here and on the Right of Entry page on the El Dorado County Mosquito Fire Recovery website. 

You may submit your completed ROE to El Dorado County Environmental Health at emd.info@edcgov.us. ROEs must be complete prior to Phase II approval. You will receive an email notification when your ROE is approved for Phase II debris removal from your property. You will be able to be present during debris removal. 

The deadline for ROE submission is December 16th. You will receive an email notification when your ROE is approved for Phase II debris removal for your property.

For questions about debris removal or the ROE forms, please call 530-621-6623 or email emd.info@edcgov.us

Aside from structure debris removal, the El Dorado and Georgetown Divide Resource Conservation District may be able to assess options for dead or dying trees as a result of the fire. Contact them at (530) 303-5329 or at connectwithred@gmail.com


Property Owner-led program (Alternative Program)

Property owners may choose to manage debris removal themselves through the Alternative Program. Under this option, property owners must hire a qualified contractor and environmental consultants at their own expense. With a qualifying structure, property owners cannot cleanup property themselves. All work must be completed according to state standards and must be reviewed and approved by Environmental Management Department (EMD).
