PV Water awarded $7.6 million for supplemental water resource

WATSONVILLE—Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency (PV Water) received $7.6 million to support its College Lake Project, which will supply a supplemental source of water for the Pajaro Valley.

The grant was awarded May 4 through the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) Sustainable Groundwater Management Grant Program. 

The College Lake Project will provide up to 2,300 acre-feet per year of surface water, offsetting that amount of groundwater pumping. Groundwater accounts for more than 90% of water demand in the Pajaro Valley Basin.

PV Water will use water from College Lake to reduce the annual groundwater deficit of approximately 12,000 acre-feet per year.
