The Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency operates the regional wastewater treatment plant located two miles north of Marina. It also maintains 25 pump stations connected to the treatment plant. MRWPCA member communities are Pacific Grove, Monterey, Del Rey Oaks, Seaside, Sand City, Fort Ord, Marina, Castroville, Moss Landing, Boronda, Salinas and some unincorporated areas in Northern Monterey County.

Additionally, MRWPCA operates the water recycling facility at the Regional Treatment Plant and manages the distribution system under contract from the Monterey County Water Resources Agency. The recycling operations provide irrigation water to 12,000 acres of Castroville farmland.

The use of highly treated wastewater to irrigate landscaping has been practiced for years, yet for food crops, it is relatively new. The recycled water facility is capable of producing an average of 29.6 million gallons of recycled water per day. This is the equivalent of one foot of water over 91 acres of land.

In the future, MRWPCA plans to additionally supply recycled water to city parks, school yards and golf courses.

The MRWPCA was awarded 2000 Best Large Wastewater Treatment Plant in the state by the California Water Environment Association. Factors that contributed to this award were MRPWCA's excellent compliance history, it's innovative team-based management and cost cutting efforts that have prevented residential rate increases for 10 consecutive years.
