• Rudy Fischer selected chairman of Water Pollution Control Agency

    After serving as the city’s representative to the board of the MRWPCA (two years as Vice Chair), Pacific Grove Councilman Rudy Fischer was elected as Chair of the agency’s board at their February meeting. ‘Mostly in this role I will be responsible for running the board’s monthly meetings, getting involved in some of our outreach activities, and coordinating subcommittee roles,” he said.
    The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency is dedicated to meeting the wastewater and water recycling needs of our member agencies while protecting the environment. Their Vision Statement: The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency will be a model customer service provider for the efficient, innovative utilization of wastewater.”
    “I also hope to be a sounding board for the General Managers as the agency goes through an interesting time” said councilman Fischer. The MRWPCA is in the process of expanding their coverage area, looking at major capital improvements to make the wastewater system more reliable, and is spearheading the Pure Water Monterey project. The latter project will eventually provide the Peninsula with just over 3,500 acre feet of potable water each year.Cal Am also wishes to use the PCA’s outfall for discharge from their planned desal plant. The agency is negotiating an agreement to allow that while ensuring the brine produced by the plant does not damage or impair the outfall in any way.
