• Recycled water now meets 100% of the irrigation needs of all of the golf courses in the Del Monte Forest (Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill, The Links at Spanish Bay, Peter Hay, Cypress Point, Monterey Peninsula Country Club, and Poppy Hills), thus eliminating potable water usage.
• The potable water savings means less watershed impact to the Carmel River. More water can remain in the watershed for native flora and fauna.
• Less treated wastewater is discharged to the Pacific Ocean and Carmel Bay thereby contributing to an overall improvement in ocean water quality in this area – designated by the State of California as an Area of Special Biological Significance.
• A valuable commodity, water, is reused saving drinking water for higher uses and reducing energy costs needed to produce and distribute that water.
