Carmel Area Wastewater District is a special district dedicated to protecting the public health and the environment by the cost-effective collection and treatment of wastewater and the return of clean water to the environment.
Keeping our water and environment clean is a priority with us. The District considers environmental stewardship a key component of the wastewater treatment business. Our rivers and ocean waters teem with life that depends on the shoreline, beaches, and marshes. They are critical habitats for hundreds of species of fish and other aquatic life. Migratory water birds use the areas for resting and feeding.
Water is also a playground for all of us. The scenic and recreational values of our waters are the reason many people choose to live where they do – and a prime reason that the Central Coast and Monterey Bay area are considered so desirable.
Our mission statement says it all – we link the treatment of wastewater with environmental stewardship.
