The Feasibility Study is a regional project to develop and assess alternatives to extract and desalinate groundwater from the 600,000 acre-foot zone of high salinty water within the West Coast Basin. Using existing and stakeholder-provided data, identify and evaluate options for groundwater extraction and treatment, including power supply. Identify project entitlements, necessary environmental review and permits, and costs.
