Maps display information about food facility inspections, beach water quality, mosquito surveillance, and water well drilling.

Residents and visitors to SLO County can easily access location-specific information to help stay safe and healthy, thanks to four map-based tools from the Environmental Health Services team at the Public Health Department. These mapping tools include:  

EatSafeSLO, for people who want to see the results of food facility inspections.
This tool maps restaurants and retail food facilities that are actively permitted in SLO County, with links to inspection reports and program-related services. Restaurant-goers can use the tool to view nearby restaurants based on current location, search by facility name, or explore predefined food hubs. Access this tool on the go at

SurfSafeSLO, for people who want to learn about water quality at the beach.
This tool maps beach water quality testing sites (both current and past) with links to bacteriological lab test results, summarized beach health advisories, beach closures, and information about nearby rain storms that may affect beach water quality. Program-related information is also available. Access this tool on the go at

MosquitoSurveillanceView, for people who want to learn about mosquitoes found in SLO County.
This tool maps seasonal mosquito surveillance sites and provides details about the number and species of mosquitoes found at each site. It also maps the location of dead birds that have tested positive for West Nile virus after being found by the public and reported to the California Department of Public Health.

DrillerView, for professional water well drillers.
This tool provides a countywide base map along with multiple land-use and environmental mapping layers. It also provides analytical tools to assess proposed water well sites, standardized site map templates to support the well permit application process, and links to related services.

These tools were built from the ground up from 2015-2018 as part of an effort to make this information easily available to the public.  Visit our Environmental Health Story Map.
