IN THE COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA SIXTH APPELLATE DISTRICT MARINA COAST WATER DISTRICT, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. CALIFORNIA COASTAL COMMISSION, Defendant and Respondent; CALIFORNIA-AMERICAN WATER COMPANY, Real Party in Interest and Respondent. H042742 (Santa Cruz County Super. Ct. No. CV180839), Unpublished Opinion, 10/26/2016

ABSTRACT: The unpublished opinion of author Patricia Bamattre-Manoukian, and concurring participants Franklin D. Elia and Nathan D. Mihara, Sixth Appellate District, regarding Marina Coast Water District v. California Coastal Commission (Case Number H042742), document copy is embedded. 
INTRODUCTION Real party in interest California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) wanted to construct and operate a temporary test slant well on private beach property owned by CEMEX, a company that used the site for sand mining. Cal-Am was required to obtain coastal development permits for the project from the California Coastal Commission (Coastal Commission)1 and the City of Marina. In its permit application to the City of Marina, Cal-Am stated that the purpose of the temporary test slant well project was to gather technical data regarding the feasibility of a subsurface water intake system for a potential future desalination project.
The Marina City Council denied Cal-Am’s application for a coastal development permit and Cal-Am filed an appeal to respondent Coastal Commission. After preparing a staff report addressing the environmental impacts of the test slant well project and holding a public hearing, the Coastal Commission issued the coastal development permit sought by Cal-Am.
Appellant Marina Coast Water District (Marina Coast) is a municipal water district that provides water service to 30,000 residential and commercial customers in the City of Marina and the former Ford Ord Army Base. According to Marina Coast, the test slant well will pump groundwater from the Salinas Valley Groundwater Basin from which Marina Coast also pumps groundwater. Marina Coast filed a petition for writ of mandate2 challenging the Coastal Commission’s decision to issue the coastal development permit to Cal-Am, which the trial court denied in its August 24, 2015 judgment.
On appeal, Marina Coast contends that the trial court erred in denying the petition for writ of mandate and the Coastal Commission’s approval of Cal-Am’s coastal development permit should be reversed because the Coastal Commission lacked appellate jurisdiction. Alternatively, Marina Coast contends that the Coastal Commission’s approval violated several provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code § 21000 et seq.) For the reasons stated below, we find no merit in Marina Coast’s contentions and we will affirm the judgment.3
CONCLUSION Under the applicable standards of review, we have determined that the Coastal Commission had jurisdiction to hear Cal-Am’s appeal of the City’s denial of Cal-Am’s application for a coastal development permit for the test slant well, since the City Council’s denial of the application was a final action and there was a substantial issue as to conformity with the City’s LCP. We have also determined that Marina Coast failed to show that the Coastal Commission violated CEQA in approving Cal-Am’s coastal development permit for the test slant well. We will therefore affirm the trial court’s August 24, 2015 judgment, which denied Marina Coast’s petition for a writ of mandate challenging the Coastal Commission’s decision.

State Water Resources Control Board Deny Petitions for Reconsideration of Water Rights Order No. 2016-0016 Filed by Ratepayers Association of the Monterey Peninsula (WRAMP, aka Water Plus) & Public Trust Alliance

ABSTRACT: On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, the State Water Resources Control Board adopted the proposed Order Denying Petitions for Reconsideration of Water Rights Order No. 2016-0016, adopted by the Board on July 19, 2016, filed by Ratepayers Association of the Monterey Peninsula (WRAMP, aka Water Plus) and Public Trust Alliance. "Order WR 2016-0016 extends the date by which Cal-Am must cease its unauthorized Carmel River diversions from December 2016 to December 2021 and sets a maximum diversion limit of 8,310 acre-feet, subject to further reductions of 1,000 acre-feet should Cal-Am not satisfy specific milestone dates for construction of, and thence use of water from, a desalination project and a recycled water project (Pure Water Monterey)." (DRAFT) CONCLUSION For the reasons stated above, the State Water Board finds that State Water Board Order WR 2016-0016 was appropriate and proper, and denies the petitions for reconsideration. To the extent that the petitions for reconsideration purported to raise issues not addressed in this order, the State Water Board finds that the issues do not raise substantial issues related to the causes for reconsideration enumerated in California Code of Regulations, title 23, section 768. ORDER IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT the petitions for reconsideration are denied.

Carmel Art Association Presents SOLO SHOW CAROL CHAPMAN, SOLO SHOW HELENE GOLDSTEIN, GALLERY SHOWCASE SUSAN GIACOMETTI ‘ON BIRDS’ & GALLERY SHOWCASE JEFF DANIEL SMITH

Carmel Art Association 

Mission Statement: 
The Association exists to provide its members with a permanent art gallery, to advance knowledge of, and interest in the arts, and to create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among artists and the community. 

A Proud Heritage: 
The legendary Carmel Art Association was formed on August 8, 1927 by a small group of artists who gathered at “Gray Gables,” the modest home/studio of Josephine Culbertson and Ida Johnson at the corner of Seventh and Lincoln in Carmel-by-the-Sea. These nineteen “pioneers”—who grew up in the 19th century and individually found their respective paths to Carmel from all corners of the world—each desired a greater sense of community, a spirit of collaboration, and a place to show their work. Before the meeting concluded, they had established an association with a mission “to advance art and cooperation among artists, secure a permanent exhibition space, and promote greater fellowship between artists and the public.”
