Action:  The Board will consider the second reading of Ordinance No. 109, which would enable upgrades to the CAWD/PBCSD Recycled Water Project (formerly titled the CAWD/PBCSD Wastewater Reclamation Project).  Water entitlements held by the Pebble Beach Company in accordance with MPWMD Ordinance No. 39 would be made available to properties throughout Del Monte Forest, rather than only to properties owned by the Pebble Beach Company.  Ordinance No. 109 would amend MPWMD Rule 23.5.  First reading of this ordinance occurred at the October 20, 2003 meeting.   The Board will first consider approval of CEQA findings in support of its action on Ordinance No. 109.  Public comment will be received on Ordinance No. 109 and the CEQA findings under this item.
