The city of Monterey, a waterfront community in Monterey County, is situated along Monterey Bay on the Pacific coast in central California. With nearly 30,000 year-round residents, Monterey’s population swells to more than 70,000 people during the peak visitor season from May through October. Popular attractions in Monterey include the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf and the annual Monterey Jazz Festival. Monterey is also recognized for its rich history of resident painters and authors beginning in the late 19th century.

Incorporated in 1889, Monterey had been famous for the abundant fishery in Monterey Bay. That changed in the 1950s, when the local fishery business declined due to overfishing. More recently, Monterey has been notable for its involvement in post-secondary learning of languages other than English and its major role in delivering translation and interpretation services around the world. In 1995, Monterey was proclaimed as “The Language Capital of the World”. Among Monterey’s top employers are The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), an accredited research university operated by the United States Navy; Pacific Gas and Electric; and Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Monterey, California has a lengthy history of activity in industries known for their use of asbestos-containing materials.
