CALIFORNIA AMERICAN WATER COMPANY'S MONTEREY PENINSULA WATER SUPPLY PROJECT - DRAFT REVIEW

On September 26, 2012, the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) asked the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) whether the California American Water Company (Cal-Am) has the legal right to extract desalination feed water for the proposed Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project (MPWSP). The CPUC stated that it is not asking for a determination of water rights, but is instead requesting an opinion as to whether Cal-Am has a credible legal claim to extract feed water for the proposed MPWSP, in order to inform the CPUC's determination regarding the legal feasibility of the MPWSP. On November 16, 2012, the State Water Board informed the CPUC that State Water Board staff would prepare an initial report for the Commission and for public review.
