1995 - Monterey County Water Conservation Alternatives - An Analysis

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

The major goal of this study ,prepared by Agland Investment Services, Inc. on behalf of the Monterey County Water Resources Agency, was to estimate the direct and regional economic impacts of different policies aimed at encouraging agricultural water conservation in the Salinas Valley. The study also looked at combinations of conservation measures which could provide a least cost conservation contribution to the seawater intrusion problem. Agland concluded that policymakers should consider adopting a least cost approach when they considered the mix of infrastructure projects and urban and rural conservation measures.

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Water Reports

California State legislation outlines the objectives and purposes of the Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) and states that the MCWRA is to “carry on technical and other necessary investigations, make measurements, collect data, make analyses, studies and inspections pertaining to water supply, water rights, control of flood and storm waters and use of water both within and outside of the agency ...” The MCWRA is responsible for the managing, planning and engineering of the water resources of the Salinas Valley. This report was prepared in part to fulfill that responsibility.

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

This report provided the Salinas groundwater basin hydrogeology informaion documented since the 1950s in order to provide a better understanding of the advancement of seawater intrusion into groundwater zones. Since the later 1990s, well logs, geopyhsical and lithological data supporting a three-dimensional study of the inter-related ancestral fluvial and alluvial-fan depositional environments making up the groundwater bearing zones (180-Foot and 400-Foot aquifers) and their implications on seawater intrusion pathways.

The economic importance of a detailed rendition of hydrostratigraphic characteristics was to assist in the construction and placement of future water supply and monitoring wells within the study area. Seawater was ...
