Consider Second Reading and Adoption of Ordinance No. 174 - An Ordinance of the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District Suspending Authority to Accept Water Permit Applications for New Connections Based Upon Paralta Allocation, Pre-Paralta Allocation, Quail Meadows Subdivision Annexation, and Water West Reserve



Action:  The proposed ordinance would supersede Urgency Ordinance No. 173 adopted on August 15, 2016, and suspend staff’s authority to accept Water Permit applications for new Connections when the application relies on a Jurisdiction’s Paralta or pre-Paralta Allocation, the Quail Meadows Annexation, or the Water West Reserve until the Main California-American Water Company Water Distribution System is no longer subject to a Public Utilities Commission ordered moratorium or the District explicitly rescinds or repeals this measure.






Consider First Reading of Ordinance No. 175 - Modification of District Rules re Use of Water from the Carmel Valley Alluvial Aquifer for Water Supply



Action:  The Board will consider modifications to the Rules for Water Distribution Systems that depend on the Carmel Valley Alluvial Aquifer for supply.  The modifications reflect the Board policy set in August 2016 to reverse the trend of seasonal dewatering of the Carmel River and ensure that new development has a long-term sustainable supply.
