New Monterey desalination public meeting announced

The second meeting of the Monterey Regional Desalination Project Community Involvement Forum will be held on 23 August 2011 in the Monterey Plaza Hotel, Cannery Row.

The Community Involvement Forum is sponsored by California American Water, Marina Coast Water District and the Monterey County Water Resources Agency.

The forum concerns the desalination and aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) project those agencies have proposed to replace diversions from the Carmel River and address future water needs in the former Fort Ord. The forum, which meets quarterly, is open to everyone and provides an opportunity to learn more about regional water supply issues.
