Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Project

Filed under: Infrastructure in the Public Interest,Water — Mike Warburton @ 5:57 pm

Monterey Peninsula Cities cannot continue to dry up the Carmel River to satisfy their water demands.  A regional water supply project including a desalination plant in the coastal salt water intrusion zone is feasible and can be operated in the long term public interest.  Oral arguments before the California Public Utilities Commission will start Wednesday in the approval process for the agreements between agencies and companies that will make the project possible.  The Public Trust Alliance will be there to ensure that long term public trust interests are adequately protected.
