Document Description
The Projects are priority supplemental water supply projects outlined in PV Water's Basin Management Plan (BMP) Update (adopted in 2014). The primary purpose of the Projects is to help balance the Pajaro Valley Groundwater Basin, prevent further seawater intrusion, and meet the water supply needs in PV Water's service area by upgrading and expanding the existing Harkins Slough pump station, developing Struve Slough as a water supply source, and constructing new recharge basins. The Harkins Slough Project components would consist of upgrades to the Harkins Slough pump station, installation of a backwash and raw water pipeline from the filter plant at the Harkins Slough pump station to an existing gravity sewer in West Beach Street, and construction of two new recharge basins and associated recovery wells and pipelines. The Struve Slough Project components would consist of a new screened intake, new pump station, a new pipeline to connect the new pump station to the Harkins Slough pump station, a new pipeline to connect the Harkins Slough pump station to the recharge basins, and a new recharge basin and associated recovery wells and pipelines.
