SCHOCH ROAD COMMUNITY
Salinas River Valley, California Water System Evaluation
The Schoch Rd. community is a small, rural neighborhood located near the City of Salinas, California in North Monterey County. The primary source of water supply for the homes within the community is from privately owned domestic wells. Historical water quality sampling has revealed high concentrations of nitrate in the source aquifer which subject the community members to serious health risks if not treated.
EWB-KC performed a feasibility study which identified a number of alternative solutions to providing the community with reliable, clean water. A report was developed which summarized the alternatives and identified a preferred alternative. The report was submitted to the community and is being used by the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water as part of a grant application for funding the final design and construction of the recommended improvements.
