NEWS NOTES ON SUSTAINABLE WATER RESOURCES Soquel Creek Water District http://www.soquelcreekwater.org/planning-our-water-future/purewatersoquel Water District Explores Groundwater Replenishment Option The Soquel Creek Water District has announced the formal initiation of the environmental review phase for its Pure Water Soquel project. A groundwater replenishment project involves the treatment of municipal wastewater using advanced purification methods and injection of purified water into groundwater aquifers. This project would help address critical overdraft conditions in the Santa Cruz Mid-County Groundwater Basin, as well as prevent further seawater intrusion. The National Water Research Institutes (NWRI) will administer an independent advisory panel to review the feasibility and risks associated with this project.
