2020 Carmel Area Wastewater District Sphere of Influence Amendment and Annexation Proposal
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The proposed project is the 2020 CAWD Sphere of Influence (SOI) Amendment and Annexation in accordance with relevant codes and ordinances of the District, local jurisdictions, and the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000. The project area includes all CAWD’s current jurisdictional boundaries in Monterey County, California and the areas being considered for SOI amendment and annexation; project areas include portions of the unincorporated communities of Carmel Valley and Carmel Highlands. The proposed project requires approvals from: 1) CAWD Board of Directors, 2) Monterey County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) and 3) Coastal Commission authorization for expansion of the wastewater service boundary within the Coastal Zone. The project proposes annexation of approximately 925 acres of developed land, outside of the current CAWD SOI, in locations where the District either anticipates, or has received applications for, sewer service connection requests due to failing septic systems. The project actions identified above would result in the extension of the jurisdictional boundaries of the District to allow for future wastewater service extension in this area.
