Salinas Valley Seawater Intrusion 04/23/18A 08:02 S.S.

Monterey  county  officials  are  debating  a  moratorium  on  new  wells.  That’s  because  of  continued  seawater  intrusion  in  the  Salinas  valley  groundwater  basin,  and  a  deeper  aquifer  that helps  provide  municipal  and  agricultural  water.   A meeting is scheduled to take place on this matter tomorrow, in the County Government Center in Salinas, beginning at 1:30 p.m.
