Application to Amend California American Water Distribution System – Interconnection of Ryan Ranch and Bishop Units in Seaside Basin for Emergency Use



Action:  The Board will consider a request by California American Water (Cal-Am) to interconnect its Ryan Ranch Unit to the Bishop Unit via a 300-foot one-way pipeline.  Bishop water would be used to augment Ryan Ranch supply during those periods when Ryan Ranch capacity is lacking.  No other changes to either water system are proposed.  Both systems are in the Laguna Seca Subarea of the Seaside Groundwater Basin.  The Bishop source would replace the current emergency intertie from the main Cal-Am system, thus reducing extractions from the Carmel River and/or Seaside Coastal Subbasin.  This intertie is part of the 2015-2017 General Rate Case recently approved by the California Public Utilities Commission and supported by the District.

Consider Adoption of July through September 2015 Quarterly Water Supply Strategy and Budget



Action:  The Board will consider approval of a proposed production strategy for the California American Water Distribution Systems for the three-month period of July through September 2015.  The strategy sets monthly goals for surface and groundwater production from various sources within the California American Water systems.
