Paso Robles Groundwater Basin - Supply Options Study


Supply Options Study Update

On January 28, 2014, the Board of Supervisors authorized the Public Works Director to execute a contract with Carollo engineers to evaluate water supply options for the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. The contract was executed on May 8, 2014. A kick-off meeting between staff and the consultant team was held on May 16, 2014, however the project was put on hold in June and July in order to complete the IRWM Plan and Drought Grant Application. The scope of work includes identifying and evaluating:

  • Cost Estimates
  • How much State Water, Nacimiento Water and Recycled Water may be available, including its quality/suitable uses
  • When each water supply option may be available (i.e. how long into the future, duration, wet/normal/dry years)
  • Alternative points of delivery to the Basin for each water supply option
  • Other considerations including regulatory, contractual, environmental, financial, timing and public/institutional acceptance
