The proposed project is called the CWP and is being proposed by CalAM. The water supply is needed to replace exisitng supplies that are constrained by recent legal decisions affecting the Carmel River and Seaside Groundwater Basin water resources. The CWP would produce desalinated water, convey it to the existing CalAM distribution system, and increase the system's use of storage capacity in the SeasideGroundwater Basin. The CWP would consist of several distinct components: a seawater intake system; a desalination plant; a brine discharge system; product water conveyance pipelines and storage facilities; and an aquifer storage and recovery system.
