Document Description
The Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency (PVWMA) has prepared the draft Revised Basin Management Plan (Revised BMP) to address water resources management issues in the Pajaro Valley. The Revised BMP provides a review and update of previous water supply studies to outline the extent of the Pajaro Valley's groundwater over-pumping and seawater intrusion problems. The Revised BMP identifies available options and evaluates alternative strategies to meet the agency's objectives, two of which are evaluated in detail in the EIR: the BMP 2000 Alternative and the Local-Only Alternative. These alternatives involve development of long-term water supplies. Projects include water conservation, water recycling, potential import of Central Valley Project (CVP) water and construction of an import pipeline connecting the Pajaro Valley to the San Felipe division of the CVP, and/or development of local water supplies potentially including diversions from streams and sloughs.
