Project Description: San Lucas is a small unincorporated community (pop 269) in rural Monterey County. The community water system is owned and operated by the San Lucas Water District. In 2011 the District’s only well began to exceed the State-mandated MCL for nitrates. The Monterey County Health Department Environmental Health Bureau issued a "do not drink" order to all residents of the community, and directed the Water District to obtain a new permanent long-term source of supply that will continue to meet legal water quality standards for at least twenty years. The County of Monterey is providing technical assistance to the Water District to seek and obtain grant funding, study project alternatives, and implement the design engineering, environmental review, permitting and construction of a selected project to provide a long-term permanent water supply.
