The District is currently evaluating a project, Pure Water Soquel, that would involve treating municipal wastewater with advanced purification methods and replenishing the groundwater basin with purified water to help address critical overdraft conditions in the Santa Cruz Mid-County Groundwater Basin and prevent further seawater intrusion.
The District is preparing an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to evaluate the potential environmental effects of the Project. As the first step in the EIR process, the District has published a Notice of Preparation and has extended accepting comments through January 5, 2017.
How to submit comments:
