The Pure Water Monterey project will provide a clean, safe and sustainable source of water for the Monterey Peninsula and the Salinas Valley. It emphasizes advanced water recycling technology, replenishment of the groundwater supply and protection of the environment.
Pure Water Monterey provides both purified potable water for domestic use , as well as a supply for irrigating one of the state of California’s most fertile areas; the Salinas Valley. The project will be the first of its kind to utilize not only wastewater, but stormwater, food industry processing water and impaired surface waters of the State. It is cost effective compared to other water processing projects, assists underserved communities and is an environmentally sustainable solution for our area’s water supply issues.
