2015 - Preliminary Engineering Design Report For Control Of Non-Winter Drainage At Carr Lake Jan 2019

2015 - Preliminary Engineering Design Report For Control Of Non-Winter Drainage At Carr Lake

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

Landowners at Carr Lake reported increasing issues with proper drainage of the agricultural fields that made up the vast majority of the former lake bed. The primary driver of the study was the recognition that a more complete understanding of the site topography and hydrology is necessary, both to frame the pertinent issues and to identify any measures that may be appropriate to enhance drainage in the ditch system. Therefore the project work plan included two main fieldwork components, topographic survey and hydrologic monitoring. The fieldwork was followed up by data post processing, mapping, and associated supporting analyses.

Work was ...


1995 - Hydrogeology And Water Supply Of Salinas Valley, White Paper By Salinas Valley Ground Water Basin Hydrology Conference Apr 2018

1995 - Hydrogeology And Water Supply Of Salinas Valley, White Paper By Salinas Valley Ground Water Basin Hydrology Conference

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Water Reports

The solution to the water resource problems within the Salinas Valley had been known since at least 1946. The best solution, proposed at that time by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), recognized that sufficient supplemental water could be developed within the basin recognizing the need to transfer water from the Forebay Area to the Pressure and East Side areas. The Salinas Valley Ground Water Basin Hydrology Panel urged Monterey County Water Resources Agency to focus on completion of the extraction facilities and conveyance system similar to those outlined in the DWR Bulletin 52 in 1946; to continue studies ...


2006 - Monterey County Water Resources Agency - Reclamation Ditch Watershed Assessment And Management Strategy, Final Report Mar 2018

2006 - Monterey County Water Resources Agency - Reclamation Ditch Watershed Assessment And Management Strategy, Final Report

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

The 2006 Watershed Assessment and Management Strategy was completed for the Reclamation Ditch Watershed in northern Monterey County, California, for Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA). The report provides an assessment of the Reclamation Ditch Watershed that incorporates the entire watershed above the Potrero Road tide gates (near Moss Landing) on the Old Salinas River Channel, excluding the influence from the Salinas River itself via the Old Salinas River Channel. The Reclamation Ditch Watershed thus includes the watersheds of: Tembladero Slough, Merritt Lake, Santa Rita Creek, Espinosa Lake,Gabilan Creek, Natividad Creek, Alisal Slough and Alisal Creek.


2017, October - Recommendations To Address The Expansion Of Seawater Intrusion In The Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin Oct 2017

2017, October - Recommendations To Address The Expansion Of Seawater Intrusion In The Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Engineering Reports

This report provides a discussion of the current knowledge and related background information surrounding seawater intrusion pathways and potential impacts thereof on the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin. The report also serves as a body of evidence to catalogue the findings used to support the six recommendations presented. Each recommendation can be implemented on its own or in concert with the others, and the relative importance of each is discussed individually in this report. However, the recommendations are conceptualized as a comprehensive solution that, along with continued operation of projects that have been constructed for the same purpose, have the strongest ...

2013, November 19 - Protective Elevations To Control Sea Water Intrusion In The Salinas Valley, Geoscience For Mcwra

Miscellaneous Monterey and San Luis Obispo County Documents and Reports

A report prepared in support of preventing revocation of Permit 1043 (State of California Division of Water Rights Permit for Diversion of Use of Water – Amended Permit 11043 dated 110-Jul-49) that allows for appropriation of water from the Salinas River in Monterey County California not to exceed 400 cfs with annual maximum diversion not to exceed 168,538 acre feet per year. The report addresses the potential beneficial uses of diverting water to help increase groundwater levels in the Pressure and East Side Subareas that would in turn help to control seawater intrusion.


2015, January 16 - State Of The Salinas River Groundwater Basin - Hydrology Report Jun 2017

2015, January 16 - State Of The Salinas River Groundwater Basin - Hydrology Report

Monterey County Water Resources Agency Water Reports

A study conducted for Monterey County under County Professional Agreement 14-714, in response to Referral No. 2014.01. Prepared by Brown and Caldwell under the oversight of Monterey County Water Resources Agency, this report addresses the effects of prolonged drought by considering likely changes in groundwater head elevations, groundwater storage, and seawater intrusion. Some steps are offered that might help alleviate the consequences of further depleting groundwater storage. They study area is MCWRA Benefit Zone 2C which largely straddles the Salinas River in Monterey County. Zone 2C consists of 7 subareas: Above Dam, Below Dam, Upper Valley, Arroyo Seco, Forebay ...
