Farmworker Housing Complex on Hitchcock Road, is currently on septic. The complex is outside the City of Salinas city limits. The housing complex hosts up to 160 temporary farmworkers for the growing season. The complex drinking water is supplied by a groundwater well which is close proximity to the septic system. The owner's of the complex would like to connect the system into the regional wastewater system. The temporary farmworkers wages are far below the severely disadvantaged community standards. Connecting this complex into the regional system would reduce nutrient loading in the groundwater, plus provide enhance health and safety for those individuals who live in the complex.
Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency
The project is a septic-to-sewer consolidation project with Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency to reduce aquifer loading to the underlying aquifers and improve the quality of life for the residents of the farmworker housing complex.
