Document Description
The proposed Pure Water Monterey Groundwater Replenishment Project would divert new source waters to the MRWPCA Regional Treatment Plant for two purposes: 1) to create purified recycled water for recharge of the Seaside Groundwater Basin to replace 3,500 acre-feet per year of CalAm's current water supplies, enabling CalAm to reduce its diversions from the Carmel River by the same amount, and 2) to provide additional recycled water to growers within the existing Castroville Seawater Intrusion Project's service area for crop irrigation. Water sources proposed to be recycled, treated and reused by the GWR Project include municipal wastewater.
