Document Description
The proposed project is called the Coastal Water Project (CWP). The water supply is needed to replace existing 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 California American Water (CalAm) distribution system, and increase the system's use of storage capacity in the Seaside Groundwater Basin. The CWP would consists 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 and recovery (ASR) system.
