June 2004


Total System for Month:Total California American Water (Cal-Am) system production for June was 1,525 acre-feet (AF), nearly equivalent to the anticipated goal of 1,527 AF, as shown on the accompanying table (Exhibit 23-A). The 1,525 AF of production in June represents a 12 percent savings from Cal-Am's base year (i.e., Water Year 1988) production of 1,742 AF.


Total System, Water Year to Date:Total system production for the 2004 Water Year (WY) through June 30, 2004 has been 10,772 AF.The anticipated production of 10,913 AF for this same period is based on an annual goal of 15,285 AF from the Cal-Am system, and includes 398 AF of production that was anticipated for injection into the Seaside Basin.Monthly production goals are calculated by multiplying total annual production (15,285 AF) times the average fraction of annual production for each month (based on production data from 1988 to 1997).It should be noted that the total system production of 10,772 AF includes 160 AF that were produced from the Lower Carmel Valley, and injected into the Seaside Basin.The 160 AF of injection water were not produced for customer use and do not count against the SWRCB Order 95-10 diversion limit.Without the 160 AF, Cal-Amís year-to-date system production is 10,612 AF, which is 96 AF or 0.9 percent greater than the year-to-date at month-end target that has been set based on Order 95-10.


Ground Water Production:During June, 22 AF were produced from Cal-Am wells in the Upper Carmel Valley.This production was 27 percent less than the anticipated production of 30 AF.Lower Carmel Valley well production was 935 AF, one percent less than the anticipated production of 947 AF.In June, 568 AF were produced by Cal-Am from the coastal subareas of the Seaside Basin, three percent more than the anticipated production of 550 AF.


Surface Water Production:In June, no water was diverted through the Carmel Valley Filter Plant (CVFP) from San Clemente Reservoir, equivalent to the zero AF of production that was anticipated.The total diversion through the CVFP for WY 2004 has been zero AF, or zero percent of total system production. Average release to the Carmel River from San Clemente Dam during June was 14 cubic feet per second, as measured at the Sleepy Hollow Weir.


The anticipated river flow, storage values and production goals were developed jointly by the District, Cal-Am, and the California Department of Fish and Game in consultation with NOAA Fisheries.Cal-Am and District staff are monitoring reservoir storage, inflow and water quality, and will make additional changes as conditions warrant.Please refer to Exhibit 23-A for additional information regarding Cal-Am production in June 2004.
