CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 17

Meeting Date: February 27, 2001

Subject/Title: Roddy Ranch Non Potable Waterline Reimbursement Agreement 

Submitted by: Engineering: J. Stevenson,/B. Bornstein

Approved by: Jon Elam, City Manager



RECOMMENDATION
Passage of a Resolution approving the Roddy Ranch Non-Potable Waterline Reimbursement Agreement (“Agreement”), and authorizing the Mayor to execute the Agreement.

PREVIOUS ACTION
In June of 1993 the City Council adopted the General Plan including Chapter III – Infrastructure Element, Policy 1.4.2 – Reuse. This policy directs staff to explore ways to use secondary recycled wastewater, including irrigation, dust control, soil compaction, fire protection and to investigate new technology for the use of recycled water.

On May 11, 1999, a Non-Potable Water System informational report was presented to City Council by the City Engineer. The Roddy Ranch system is proposed to be added to the City’s non-potable water system through dedication and reimbursement agreement.

BACKGROUND
Roddy Ranch prepared plans to construct an extension of the City’s non-potable water system that were approved on June 18, 1999, by the City Engineer, titled, “Pump Station & Non-potable Waterline at Deer Valley Road, Balfour Road, and Fairview Avenue.” The extension includes the construction of a pump station located adjacent to Fairview Avenue at the ECCID canal. An appropriately sized pipeline was constructed from this pump station northerly in Fairview Avenue to Balfour Road and westerly in Balfour Road to Deer Valley Road. This pipeline will initially be used to supply ECCID surface water to Roddy Ranch, SunCal, and Brookfield Homes, for irrigation purposes. This facility will also be able to supply the City’s 8” non-potable line in Balfour Road so we can utilize untreated surface water from the ECCID canal to irrigate the City’s landscaping on Balfour Road. Ultimately, this line will be utilized by Roddy Ranch, SunCal, Brookfield Homes, and SPA ‘G’ and ‘H’ areas. Once the 20” non-potable line is constructed adjacent to Storm Line ‘A’ this spring, this facility will make it possible to distribute blended tertiary treated water for irrigation purposes also.

The Roddy Ranch system is an integral part of the City’s overall non-potable water system. The City wide system will ultimately be capable of being fed from the Tertiary Sewage Treatment Plant, the newly installed pump station supplying ECCID surface water, and some of our potable wells that we prefer not to use for potable purposes such as well 10A. This system sets up the infrastructure to be able to sell our tertiary water to these westerly projects, as there will be meters at each turnout. We will pay ECCID for the surface water we pump and we will bill the end users for what they use. This gives the City the opportunity to introduce a blending of the tertiary water into ECCID surface water and reuse it for irrigation to comply with the State Water Quality Control Board Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion permit.

The attached Benefit Agreement, if approved by Council, would require users to pay Roddy Ranch back for their proportional share of the cost of the facility and the City would take ownership of the facility. SunCal and Brookfield Homes are prepared to pay their proportional share to Roddy Ranch with the execution of this agreement and will be allowed to tie into this system to receive non-potable water for their irrigation, mainly the golf courses. These developers are required by Tentative Map conditions of approval to install a non-potable water system to irrigate landscaping and golf courses within the subdivision. All facilities will be dedicated to the city with the execution of this agreement between the City and Roddy Ranch.
