The project area extends approximately 18 miles, from the town of Castroville in the north to the city of Carmel in the south. The MPWSP would include a seawater intake system, which would consist of 10 subsurface slant wells' (eight active and two on standby) extending offshore into the submerged lands of MBNMS, and a Source Water Pipeline. The slant wells would be constructed at the CEMEX sand mining site in the northern coastal area of the city of Marina and would extract 24.1 million gallons per day of source water through the seafloor in MBNMS.
