• ‘The State of our Watershed’ free public forum Mon. Feb. 13

    A free public forum under the auspices of Public Water Now is planned for Monday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. “The State of Our Watershed” with David Stoldt, General Manager and Larry Hampson, District Engineer of Monterey Peninsula Water Management District will begin at 7:00 p.m.

    After the drought, the fire and the flooding, what is the condition of our watershed? How is the Carmel River doing now? What’s the condition of the Los Padres Dam? Is there sea water intrusion in the Seaside Groundwater Basin? How productive is the Aquifer Storage and Recovery Project (ASR) this year with all the winter runoff?

    What do our conservation trends look like heading into the future? How will the Water Management District function in the role of a Sustainable Groundwater Management Agency (SGMA)? Will it cost the ratepayers more? How are ratepayers affected by your agency’s collection of fees on both property taxes and on our water bills?

    What is the status of your water supply projects including Deep Water Desal and Pure Water Monterey? Are there future options for low cost water supplies?

    Attend the forum at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 490 Aguajito Rd, Carmel (off Aguajito at Hwy. 1 and 68) and find answers to these questions and more.

    PWN Forums are free and open to the public. Visit our website at www.publicwaternow.org for the latest local water news.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm.
