There are no impacts from the Coronavirus to Monterey One Water’s wastewater or water recycling treatment processes. The Coronavirus, a respiratory illness like the flu or cold, is a prime example of the viruses and other pathogens wastewater treatment plants are designed to treat. Any updates on COVID-19 and Agency operations will be posted on our website.
Our primary responsibility is to process wastewater so it is safe for reintroduction into the environment. This occurs through three types of discharge, each of which is closely monitored and regulated by state and federal agencies. Monterey One Water staff prepare and submit monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual water quality reports to regulators at the California Water Boards.
