What is an Impervious Surface?

The purpose of this map is to provide a representation of the impenetrable/impervious surfaces located within Salinas. Impervious surfaces are mainly man-made areas, such as pavements or sidewalks, that do not readily allow liquid to pass through. These areas are of concern for storm water drainage management. The impervious surface dataset was computer generated using aerial imagery and is an estimate of impervious areas. Actual conditions may not be accurately reflected in this dataset.

What Does Water, Waste and Energy (WWE) Division Do?

The Water, Waste, and Energy Division provides technical support in the specific areas of Water, Waste, and Energy.  These areas have been identified as focus areas that are complex and have local and regional significance.  The Division is essentially a Public Works special projects team that is working on larger scale, complex Public Works efforts that require a systemic approach.

The Water, Waste, and Energy Division is reorganizing and consolidating the City’s Stormwater Permit compliance efforts; managing energy programs to complete city energy efficiency projects; managing and providing technical support of solid waste initiatives led by the City to provide effective and economical solid waste services for the City; managing and providing technical support for water recycling/re-use projects and working with City partners as part of the Pure Water Monterey Project towards solutions for water supply needs for City residents and the agriculture industry; and managing and overseeing City sustainability goals and programs including the Urban Greening Program.
