DISCUSSION: At its meeting on August 20, 2018 the Board discussed the proposed decision of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) regarding the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project (MPWSP) application A.12-04-019 of California American Water Company (Cal-Am). The CPUC is expected to act on the proposed decision at its September 13th or September 27th meetings.

Comments on the proposed decision are due by September 4th and oral arguments are scheduled for August 22nd.
