Document Description
Chapter 10.72 of the Monterey County Code (MCC) outlines the requirements for obtaining a permit to construct and operate water desalinization treatment facilities within the county. Section 10.72.030(B) of the existing code requires that “each facility will be owned and operated by a public entity.” The project would revise Section 10.72.030 to remove this requirement, allowing both public and private ownership and operation of water desalinization treatment facilities within the county. All other requirements of Chapter 10.72 would remain in effect. Regardless of the type of operator, all future desalinization projects within the county would be subject to the same federal, state, regional, and local regulations regarding development and environmental protection.
