Document Description
The project is a public-private partnership aimed at addressing the long-standing water supply deficit in the Monterey Peninsula. The Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) would own, construct, operate, and maintain wells and related facilities through which brackish source water will be extracted and transported to a desalinated plant. MCWD would own, construct, operate, and maintain a desalination plant and related facilities to transport desalinated water to a delivery point, where some of the desalinated water will be received by MCWD and some will be received by CAW. CAW would own, construct, operate, and maintain the pipeline, conveyance, and pumping facilities necessary to deliver water to its customers. The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Authority (MRWPCA) would own, operate, and maintain the outfall for return of brine to the sea.
