2016 deadline on reducing pumping from Carmel River

"The state Water Resources Control Board on Wednesday released its third version of a proposed cease-and-desist order aimed at the Peninsula's water purveyor.

Among the revisions in the latest version is a Dec. 31, 2016, deadline for California American Water to bring its pumping from the Carmel River within legal limits.

The state Water Resources Control Board says the company has taken too long to develop a new water source, and continued pumping, above the legal limit, is harming steelhead trout in the Carmel River. " From Monterey Herald 9/17/09 http://www.montereyherald.com
