Latest revision as of 15:29, 25 February 2021

This page is a working area for the ENVS 560 class.

Lists to keep up to date

Don't forget to make sure all major 'issue' and 'summary' pages are listed in one of the site Contents pages.

Ideas for the future

New pages & major updates

  • Safe Harbor Agreements e.g State Parks / Garrapata
  • Smith's Blue Butterfly - ecology, distribution, conservation, regulation, agreements, enforcement, ...

Flesh out California Wildlife Conservation Board page

  • A page on mitigation banking including examples on the Central Coast (e.g. 2 CalTrans banks in our region - at Carmel Lagoon & at Elkhorn Slough)
  • California State Lands Commission
  • Mo CO Ag Land Trust & Ferrini Ranch
  • A page on simulation models used in Env Mgt in the Central Coast, and a page on each model (including links to projects where it has been used). Include models like:

Fill in pages that have been created on this wiki but are empty or mostly empty

Fill in or create pages regarding key regions or location of interest along the Californian Central Coast

Short, dead-end, and pages with the fewest revisions

A good place to look for pages that could potentially need beefing up is under the Special Pages section of this wiki. Specifically, look under:

  • Short pages
  • Dead-end pages
    • These pages do not link to other pages in the CCoWS Wiki (which is something we want to avoid. We want the wiki pages to be as interconnected as possible). Probably means that these pages are undereveloped, too...
      • It would be wise to look through these and add links to other wikis if applicable.
  • Pages with the fewest revisions
    • Also a good place to look for pages that need some minor to major revisions (for example, the California Natural Resources Agency and California Tiger Salamander, and pages are listed here.)
    • This is also an excellent place to look for pages that could potentially be part of your Phase 1 assignment. Some of these pages appear to be moderately fleshed out but have few revisions

Be wary though, looks like some of these pages could be redirected to other beefed up pages. Use the search bar to make sure you aren't re-writing information that already exists.

Minor to moderate updates

  • A member of the public emailed July 2019 asking that SC Dam be removed from maps of the Carmel Watershed
  • Check what we have on who can hold cons easements (e.g. BSLT has applied to be able to do this)
  • Capture the projects, consultants, and models used in this report on the Carmel Lagoon Ecosystem Protective Barrier
  • Add [1] to firms working in our region. They do hab management for Naval Support Activity Monterey in the dunes area.
  • Add basic disclaimer etc to any wikis lacking it
  • Regional water and Desalination in California's Central Coast Region
    • Balanced view of the current desal options.
    • Decision making process about selecting a desal provider
    • Current thoughts on cost to rate payers
  • Status of county's response to new State Groundwater Monitoring regs. Compare to other parts of the state?
  • Get a list of the planned urban development for the next ten years in the CalAm service area and assess the water consumption of those developments.
  • Follow up on Big Sur Watershed management plan as a case study in that kind of public process...what kinds of projects were implemented or are planned as a result of that document. What is the process for getting improvement projects funded? Does the current watershed management planning process work? What is the status of the Carmel watershed management planning process?
  • Issues around los padres Dam.

Updates worked on in 2014:

Leftover ideas after 2014:

  • Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP)
    • Who they are
    • What they do
    • Who are members
    • Student chapter
    • Recent events
  • PG Diversion project & DEIR
  • Hollister Hills - site summary
  • Page on all the water providers in the Monterey Bay Region - the biggies (like Cal Am), and all the teeny weird ones you never heard of (like Seaside Muni). Needs a good set of maps.
  • Other:
    • Water Supply for the Cal Am service area (focus on current impediments to the proposed portfolio approach)
    • Water metering as a means of understanding agricultural water use.
    • Understanding "water policy cycles"---Water supply and Policies that are viable in drought years, but untenable in years of plenty (new big dams in CA, etc).
    • Impacts of the new Salinas River channel maintenance program.
    • Movement toward public takeover of Cal Am water supply system.
    • Is there a physical inventory of extant groundwater resources to fuel existing (or proposed) Fort Ord reuse plans. This could be a close scrutiny of the Monterey Downs EIR.
    • How does the planned desal impact Fort Ord reuse?
    • Potential water use projects that would secure the now tenuous MCWRA rights to about 168,000 af/yr of Salinas Valley water.
    • When new subdivisions are permitted, they must demonstrate a sustainable water supply. Apparently, that approach is flawed, since many areas are in overdraft. What are the minimum criteria for demonstrating "sustainable" water supply and why does it fail in many cases?

Leftover ideas after 2013:

  • CEQA
    • CEQA approaches to each of the main CEQA areas:
      • Visual / aesthetic
      • Transport
      • Wetlands
      • etc.
    • Firms that do CEQA, tabulated by project, role, specialty, client etc.
  • Land use planning in Central Coast
    • County General Plan
    • County Long-Range Development Plan
    • Marina General Plan
    • Seaside General Plan
    • AMBAG Metropolitan Transportation Plan
    • TAMC Regional Transportation Plan
    • Former CA-led County Redevelopment Agencies and new 'Successor' agencies.
    • Fort Ord
      • BRAC / Fort Ord Cleanup
      • History of consistency determinations made with respect to Fort Ord Reuse Plan
  • Viewshed policy (county critical viewshed, approaches taken in CEQA projects)
  • Water rights - How do water rights work?
    • e.g. for projects in CEQA right now (Ferrini, Downs)
  • Drainage studies
    • e.g. Canyon del Rey and current contract to Balance & Whitson
  • Ag Waiver & TMDLs:
    • Can always use more updating with new developments
  • Stakeholder pages:
    • Marina Coast Water District, e.g. its role in Fort Ord re-use
    • MPWMD, e.g. its role in Canyon del Rey drainage study update
    • TAMC
    • AMBAG
  • Specific Watersheds
  • Wildlife:
    • Wildlife habitat corridor planning - State-level efforts, Regional effort led by CalTrans, Local survey led by BSLT, ...
