The Recycled Water Facility and Coastal Distribution System pipeline is the agency's most recent major construction project, designed to provide the only new source of water in the basin. These facilities will provide approximately 7,000 acre-feet of irrigation supply to coastal growers. Use of this water eliminates the need to pump groundwater within an area encompassing 7,700 acres.
With the approval of the Basin Management Plan Update, in combination with the recent Integrated Regional Water Management Plan Drought Funding Opportunity, we hope to expand the facilities and improve delivered water quality.
PVWMA continues to develop innovative solutions to the basin's water resource challenges. Watch this space to see our ideas unfold.
