Estimate of the 2030 land use and water needs in Monterey County, California
Documentation of the methodology and data used to estimate the land use, M&I water needs, and pumped agricultural water under the 2030 conditions. One of the primary goals of the Salinas River Basin Management Plan (BMP) is to meet the agricultural, and municipal and industrial water needs of the Valley under the existing conditions (1995 level of development) as well as, under the future conditions (2030 level of development), while stopping the seawater intrusion and balancing the hydrologic conditions in the basin. In order to meet the 2030 water needs, a reasonable estimate of land use and water use conditions is required.
The major sources used to develop the future land use and water use estimates are as follows: MCWRA Ground Water Extraction Management System; MCWRA GIS Land Use Coverage; Association of Monterey Bay Area Governments and Salinas Valley Integrated Ground and Surface Water Model
