Association Water Policy
is hereby resolved by the Carmel Valley Association that the future water
supplies should conform to the following principles:
new water supply facilities, except for improvements within the CalAm distribution
system, should be owned by public agencies that are under the direction
of a board on which officials elected by Monterey Peninsula citizens are
substantially represented, such as MPWMD and MRWPCA.
The water supply plan shall be developed in a public process that is fully
open and transparent
is of the essence and therefore:
agency or agencies that will own and operate the facilities, working under
very tight timelines should develop the specific facility plans and environmental
selection of options shall be based on the estimated time required to complete
the project and an assessment of the risks of delay due to potential threats
as well as the cost, water quality, reliability and environmental impacts.
projectís production capacity for the Monterey Peninsula, as well as Peninsula
growth and drought protection policies and as many other details of the
project as practicable should be those that were developed for Phase 1 of
the Regional Desalination Project EIR.
