About the Edition

This thesis compares the economic cost of the Monterey County Water Resources Agency (MCWRA) groundwater allocation plan for the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin (SVGB) to a proposed free market allocation plan using transferable water rights. This analysis develops a detailed free market allocation program. It also estimates implementation costs for both plans, including the initial investment in office facilities and water use monitoring equipment, and monthly operational costs. The thesis analyzes representative water users from the Urban, Industrial and Agricultural sectors of the valley. A marginal cost curve for reducing water use is developed for each representative. These curves are used to determine the compliance costs for each allocation plan. This study concludes that the free market allocation program is more efficient than the MCWRA"s allocation program, assuming both plans use similar water use monitoring systems. Furthermore, the current MCWRA allocation program does not prevent overdrafting in the SVGB.

Salinas Valley Groundwater Process: Collaboration Works Following the passage of California's Sustainable Groundwater Management Act in , the Salinas Valley Basin faced the challenge of creating a new, local management agency to oversee the critical basin. The Salinas Valley, in turn, relies almost completely on groundwater for its water supply. Stakeholders across the Salinas Valley, including representatives of county and city government as well as the agriculture industry, collaborated on the framework for a groundwater sustainability agency. The Salinas Valley Water Project, Phase II will put to beneficial use the water right allocated to MCWRA by Water Right Permit by further developing surface water resources that will be used to offset groundwater pumping. Reduced groundwater extractions will, in turn, help to halt seawater intrusion in the Salinas River Groundwater Basin. Salinas Valley Basin Integrated Sustainability Plan January, - 5 - SECTION 5 GROUNDWATER CONDITIONS. This chapter describes the current and historical groundwater conditions in the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin. In accordance with the SGMA emergency regulations §, current conditions are any conditions occurring after January 1.
