The Monterey County Mosquito Abatement District was established in December 1950 at the request of residents under the authority of the Health and Safety code 2060. The District covers 458 square miles of Northern Monterey County. Our nine member Board of Trustees serve the residents of Salinas, Marina, Seaside, Sand City, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, and the unincorporated areas of Northern Monterey County. As an independent special district, the MCMAD is supported by ad valorem property tax revenues and a parcel fee that was voted in by the residents of Monterey County in 2014.

Our Mission

To protect public health and comfort by abating existing mosquito breeding sources and prevent new ones in order to permit full use and enjoyment of our backyards, recreational facilities, agricultural and industrial areas.

With a biologist on staff, consultation services can be supplied to agencies planning to alter and/or restore wetland habitat in order to minimize mosquito production in the finished project. The MCMAD reviews proposed development plans in order to minimize the possibility of the creation of new mosquito breeding sources.
