The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency is a government entity dedicated to meeting the wastewater and reclamation needs of its member agencies while protecting the environment. The agency was formed in 1972 to seek joint solutions to the wastewater treatment needs of its member communities: Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Salinas, Sand City, Seaside, Boronda, Castroville, Moss Landing, Fort Ord, Monterey County and Marina, Calif. A board of directors representing each jurisdiction governs the agency. The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency operates the regional wastewater treatment plant located two miles north of Marina. Each day, 21 million gallons of wastewater are processed at the plant, which serves 250,000 people. It also maintains 25 pump stations connected to the treatment plant. The agency also operates the water recycling facility at the Regional Treatment Plant and manages the distribution system under contract from the Monterey County Water Resources Agency.
