Subject/Title: Consideration of a request from the property owners of 2800 Anderson Lane to have the City prepare and submit an Out of Agency Service Request to LAFCO for sewer and water service
Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal/P. Eldredge
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Authorize staff to prepare an Out of Agency Service Application to LAFCO on behalf of the property owners of 2800 Anderson Avenue.
The previous property owner of 2800 Anderson Lane had contacted the City and requested water and sewerservice for this property. This property is outside the City’s current City limits and is located north of Lone Tree Way and just east of Anderson Avenue. Annexation of this property into the City is currently scheduled to go to LAFCO this summer.
This property was recently sold and the new residents have experienced poor water quality from the private water well that serves the property. The limit for nitrates in drinking water is 45 mg/l and test results provided by the previous property owner indicate nitrate levels of 66 mg/l. This residence needs to obtain another potable water source that is free from, or below the maximum level of 45mg/l. The options are to dig another well on-site or to connect to the City system, which is in the vicinity of the property and was installed as a part of the Pulte Homes project across the street. However, connecting into the City system requires LAFCO approval due to the property residing outside the City limits. There is sufficient capacity to serve this residence in the water system should Council direct staff to proceed and LAFCO approves the Out of Agency Service Agreement.
The property owners are responsible for all City fees (connection, inspection, staff time and monthly sewer charges) as well as all associated LAFCO fees and construction costs should LAFCO approve this. Therefore, there is no fiscal impact to the City.
