Western Municipal Water District wins two awards

Marina Coast Water District wins project of the year twice over

Marina Coast Water District recently announced that it received two Projects of the Year awards, one for emergency disaster preparedness and the other for an environmental project. Both awards are from the American Public Works Association (APWA), Monterey Chapter.

The first award is for the Ord Village Lift (pump) Station. This project involved taking the existing Fort Ord Village sewer lift (pump) station located on the west side of Highway 1, within the Fort Ord Dunes State Park (FODSP), and moving it to the east side of Highway 1 away from the Dunes and closer to most of the district’s customers.

The second award is for Recycled Water Pipelines. These recycled water pipelines expand the geographic reach of the Regional Urban Water Augmentation Project to serve irrigation customers along 5 miles of newly completed recycled water distribution mains in the Cities of Marina, Seaside, and unincorporated Monterey County. This was the culmination of many years of work, partnering with Monterey One Water to build the recycled water treatment plant, modifying ordinances, developing rates, negotiating with permitting agencies, training on safety protocols, building infrastructure, and more.
