Document Description
As instructed by the voters pursuant to Measure J, the District is proposing to acquire the Monterey Water Supply system, referred to as the MCD water system, that serves the Monterey Peninsula and outlying areas within unincorporated Monterey County and within the District’s jurisdiction; the acquisition and subsequent operation of this water supply system by the District represents the proposed project. The existing system is currently owned and operated by Cal-Am, a subsidiary of the publicly-traded company, American Water Works Company, Inc. The District’s proposed acquisition of the MCD water system would include all associated assets (i.e., real, intangible, and personal property) including, but not limited to: - Water systems and production wells; - Utility plants; - Water rights; - Water supply contracts; and - Records, books, and accounts. The proposed project includes the District’s subsequent operation and maintenance of the MCD water system. The District is proposing only to acquire and operate the existing MCD water system, and is not proposing changes or expansion to the physical MCD water system or to the associated water rights nor is the District proposing any changes to the manner of operation of the MCD water system or the exercise of the associated water rights.
