The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency is applying on behalf of the Monterey Regional Stormwater Management Program to develop a collaborative regional Stormwater Resource Plan for the Monterey Peninsula, Carmel Bay, and South Monterey Bay IRWMP planning region. The Monterey Peninsula region is 347 square miles, including six coastal cities and portions of unincorporated Monterey County. The region includes two Areas of Special Biological Significance. The main watershed is the Carmel River Basin, and the region overlies two DWR groundwater basins, Carmel Valley and Seaside. The Stormwater Resource Plan will identify new water supply sources for the region and provide additional water quality and environmental multi-benefits. New water supply sources are critical following a cease and desist order issued on the Carmel River and the adjudication of the Seaside Groundwater Basin, which together have resulted in a significant reduction of the region's legal water supplies.
