Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency

5 Harris Ct Bldg D, Monterey, CA 93940

Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency is a joint powers public agency providing wastewater treatment and water recycling services.  MRWPCA treats an average of 20 million gallons of wastewater per day from 12 member entities including: the cities of Pacific Grove, Monterey, Seaside, Sand City, Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Castroville, Moss Landing, Salinas, Boronda and unincorporated areas of northern Monterey County.  The water is treated so well it can be reused for crop irrigation.  When not recycled, the water is safely discharged 2 miles into Monterey Bay. MRWPCA's Salinas Valley Reclamation Project is the largest water recycling facility in the USA to recycle water for freshly edible food crops.   This project is in partnership with the Monterey County Water Resources Agency, which owns the 12,000 acre Castroville Seawater Intrusion Project distribution system.  Together they form the Monterey County Water Reclamation Projects, which began delivering recycled water in 1998.
