Settlement agreement between California State Water Resources Control Board and the Monterey County Water Resources Agency of dispute arising over the proposed revocation of Permit 11043 (Application 13225) authorizing the diversion of 400 cubic feet water per second from Salinas River for municipal and agricultural uses, not to exceed 168,538 acre-feet per year.

Description

Monterey County Water Resources Agency (formerly Monterey County Flood Control and Water Conservation District) submitted Application 13225 and 13226 (combined into Permit 11043) in response to problems of seawater intrusion in the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin examined by California Department of Public Works in Bulletin 52 published in 1946. The express intent of the application was to implement the solutions outlined in Bulletin 52 to combat sweater intrusion by diverting 400 cubic feet water per second from Salinas River for municipal and agricultural uses, not to exceed 168,538 acre-feet per year.. Phase I was successfully implemented in 2010. Phase II had yet to be implemented. A hearing on the proposed revocation of Permit 11043 was set for August 13, 2013. A settlement agreement between the California State Water Resources Control Board and the Monterey County Water Resources Agency was entered into in June 2013 that provided amendments to Permit 11043 and established milestone for the implementation of Phase II of the Salinas Valley Water Project.
