2003 Engineer’s Report to support an assessment for the Salinas Valley Water Project of the Monterey County Water Resources Agency
A 2003 Engineer’s Report describing the technical basis for a new assessment that would fund the capital, operation and maintenance costs of the Salinas Valley Water Project. The project would include the operation and maintenance of existing reservoirs, construction of the Nacimiento Dam Spillway Modifications, and construction of the Salinas River Diversion Facility. The project would be implemented by the Monterey County Resources Agency to meet the water supply goals of the Salinas Valley – halting seawater intrusion, continuing conservation of winter flows for recharge of the basin through summer releases, providing flood protection; improving long-term hydrologic balance between recharge and withdrawal, and providing a sufficient water supply to meet water needs through 2030.
