About Pure Water Monterey
Pure Water Monterey is an advanced water recycling project, jointly developed by two public agencies – Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (MPWMD) and the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency (MRWPCA). Pure Water Monterey is a multi-benefit, integrated, regional solution that will provide a water recycling model for other regions in California.
Using proven, advanced, multi-stage treatment to provide a safe, reliable and sustainable drinking water supply that will comply with or exceed strict state and federal drinking water standards, the project will reduce water taken from the Carmel River and the Seaside Basin. In doing so, it will help meet regulatory orders and enhance water supply reliability by diversifying local water sources.
The purified water will comply with or exceed strict state and federal drinking water standards. The purification process includes membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, oxidation with hydrogen peroxide and ultraviolet light followed by natural percolation into the groundwater basin. This technology has been proven safe and reliable throughout the United States and the world.
Special thanks to the County of Monterey for its ongoing support of the Monterey County Business Council’s efforts for economic development and education.
