Consider First Reading of Ordinance No. 160 – Comprehensive Changes to MPWMD Rules and Regulations for Water Distribution System Permits, Year 2014



Action:  The Board will consider first reading of Ordinance No. 160 that extensively amends District rules associated with the Water Distribution System (WDS) and Mobile WDS Permit process.  The proposed ordinance is based on MPWMD Resolution 2013-12 (adopted on July 22, 2013), and policy direction provided by the Board on December 9, 2013.  The proposed changes would implement a more streamlined process, eliminate duplication between MPWMD and Monterey County, and bring the District’s Rules into conformance with generally accepted legal theories concerning rights to percolating groundwater.  No changes are proposed for systems located in, or those which could have an impact on, the Carmel River and its tributaries within the District, the Carmel Valley Alluvial Aquifer, or Seaside Groundwater Basin.
