October 18, 2007--Cal Am will operate new Sand City deslination plant (Denver Post)

The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District board voted 5-2 this week to approve a 15-year lease agreement giving control of the desalting plant to Cal Am. The plant will draw from brackish water in the Seaside aquifer to produce 300 acre-feet of clean water a year. It means Cal Am won't have to pump as much water from the Carmel River and the Seaside groundwater basins. California American Water will operate the planned Sand City desalination plant, which is designed to ease the amount of water taken from the Carmel River.
