Pure Water Monterey

Notice of Determination for the Modifications to the Pure Water Monterey Groundwater Replenishment Project (or the Expanded Pure Water Monterey Project) April 27, 2021


The Pure Water Monterey project provides a clean, safe and sustainable source of water for Monterey County. It emphasizes advanced water recycling  technology, replenishment of the groundwater supply and protection of the environment.

Pure Water Monterey provides both purified potable water for domestic use, as well as a supply for irrigating one of the state’s most fertile agricultural areas in the Salinas Valley. The project is  the first of its kind to utilize not just wastewater, but stormwater, food  industry processing water, and impaired surface waters of the State. It is an environmentally sustainable solution for our area’s water supply problem.
