Salt & Nutrient Management Plan

The Pajaro Valley Water Management Agency (PV Water) developed a Salt and Nutrient Management Plan (SNMP), as required by the State Water Resources Control Board’s (State Water Board) Recycled Water Policy.  The SNMP will contribute to the implementation of two key water management strategies in the Pajaro River Watershed Integrated Regional Water Management (IRWM) Plan Update scope of work, including groundwater management and water recycling.

The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) adopted a Recycled Water Policy in May 2009 that requires development of plans to manage salts, nutrients, and other significant chemical compounds in every groundwater basin or subbasin in the state.  The SNMPs are intended to help streamline permitting of new recycled water projects while ensuring attainment of water quality objectives and protection of beneficial uses.  As part of the IRWM Update, SNMPs will be completed for the entire Pajaro Watershed which includes lands in three different counties, requiring three separate management plans.  The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) will lead the Llagas Subbasin; the Bolsa, Hollister, San Juan Bautista Area, and Tres Pinos subbasins are managed by the San Benito County Water District (SBCWD); and the Pajaro Valley Groundwater Basin is managed by PV Water.

SNMP Final Cover Oct2016

Development of the SNMP was through a stakeholder driven process.  Key tasks are listed below:

Task 1: Identify SNMP stakeholders & convene a committee

Task 5: Develop salt and nutrient goals and objectives
Task 6: Develop implementation plan
