Action: The Board will consider the first reading of Ordinance No. 109, which would enable upgrades to the CAWD/PBCSD Recycled Water Project (formerly titled the CAWD/PBCSD Wastewater Reclamation Project).

The proposed program will provide rebates for initial installations of ultra-low consumption dishwashers, ultra-low consumption washing machines, cisterns, hot water demand pumping systems and dual-flush toilets. The proposed ordinance also expands the eligibility area to include all areas within the Monterey Peninsula Water Resources System (MPWRS) and all areas served by California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) within the District, including Bishop and Hidden Hills. Cal-Am currently co-sponsors the District's program. Public comment will be received on this item.
Action: The Board will consider approval of a proposed production strategy for the California-American Water Distribution System for the three-month period of October through December 2003.
