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

ToDo 2014:

  • Ideas
    • Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP)
      • Who they are
      • What they do
      • Who are members
      • Student chapter
      • Recent events
    • GW Replenishment project - Jessica
    • Desal
    • Salinas River Channel Maintenance project/issue
    • CEQA
      • PG Diversion project & DEIR
      • Special status species:(John I., ...)
        • What the different designations are
        • What are their implications e.g. under CEQA
        • Where are lists of these species
        • What are prominent SS species in our region
      • CNDDB / CEQA
        • What is it?
        • Notable EIRs that have used the CNDDB, and how
    • Hollister Hills - site summary
    • Fort Ord
      • HCP (Devon)
    • From Doug:
      • Water Supply for the Cal Am service area (focus on current impediments to the proposed portfolio approach)
      • Water supply for underserved, marginalized communities of the Salinas Valley. Tera, ....
      • 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. Clearly 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?
