Continued Hearing on Apparent Insufficient Physical Supplies to Serve Ryan Ranch Water Distribution System and Determination as to Whether, and to What Extent, System Capacity and/or Expansion Capacity Limits Should be Modified



Action:  This item is continued from the January 21, 2009, meeting when the Board conducted an administrative hearing as required by MPWMD Rule 40 to determine if the system capacity (production) and/or expansion capacity (connection) limits for the Ryan Ranch Water Distribution System should be modified because the physical water supplies do not appear sufficient to support the previously set system limits.  California American Water, the owner and operator of the system, was notified of the insufficiency on September 19, 2008.  Public comment will be received.
