The project will create a new, watershed-based SWRP for the Greater Monterey County IRWM Region that will meet all requirements of Water Code §10560 et seq. and SWRP Guidelines. The lead applicant is Coastal Conservation and Research, Inc. a nonprofit organization. The plan will be developed on behalf of the Monterey County Resource Management Agency, which administers the Phase II NPDES permit for unincorporated urbanized areas. Watershed boundaries include the Salinas River (within Monterey County, 2,490 sq mi) and Alisal-Elkhorn Sloughs watersheds (232 sq mi). The project will include metrics-based quantitative analyses of hydrologic, topographic, and environmental conditions and opportunities, which will provide a framework for identifying and evaluating implementation projects to include in the SWRP. The resulting SWRP will describe and prioritize multi-benefit implementation projects to achieve water supply, water quality, flood control, environment, and community objectives.
