Document Description
The Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency (PVWMA) has proposed to implement Basin Management Plan Projects (the Project) to develop new water supplies to the Pajaro Valley Basin in Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties. The project is comprised of three components: the Import Pipeline, Recycled Water Facility, and Integrated Coastal Distribution System. This document will only represent 24 crossings for the Integrated Coastal Distribution System (ICDS) and 5 crossings for the Import Pipeline. The project includes pump stations, turnouts, wells, and pipeline that will primarily follow farm roads needed to provide complete irrigation to 10,000 acres (gross), or 8,500 acres (net). The proposed ICDS contains a total of 165,670 linear feet of pipeline and is divided into two service areas: Santa Cruz and Monterey. The construction corridor at the Pajaro River crossing will be 30 feet wide and 40 feet wide at the stream crossings. Most of the crossings in the ICDS alignment will be done by open-trench cut with the possibility of jack-and-bore or micro-tunnel at several of the crossings. The Pajaro River will be crossed by jack-and-bore or micro-tunnel. McClusky Slough, if that route is chosen, will also be crossed by jack-and-bore or micro-tunnel. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2003-0170-3 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project operator, Charles McNiesh / Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency.
