Abstract : The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District was created by the California legislature in 1978. Its creation was prompted by the severe water shortage on the Monterey Peninsula during the drought of 1976 and 1977. The District boundaries encompass the cities of Carmel, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Sand City, Seaside and portions of Monterey County, primarily in Carmel Valley. Two of the District's principal goals are to expand the Peninsula's water supply and to protect and restore the natural resource values of the Carmel River. These mandates have become increasingly important as the 1987-1991 drought continues into its fifth consecutive year. This part of the report covers mitigation measures for protection of the area's aquatic animals/plants, and habitats for wildlife and fishes. Runoff from the area watersheds, water flow rate into and through rivers and streams and ground water conditions are discussed.
