CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM
Meeting Date: August 12, 2003
Subject/Title: Authorize the City Manager to execute the amendment to the
agreement with the Contra Costa Water District pertaining to treated water
Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal/P. Eldredge
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute the amendment
to the agreement with the Contra Costa Water District pertaining to treated
On September 26, 1995, the City Council approved Resolution 95-215
authorizing the execution of an agreement with the Contra Costa Water
District for water supply.
On March 10, 1998, the City Council approved Resolution 98-41 approving the
principles of the agreement between East Contra Costa Irrigation District (ECCID),
Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) and the City of Brentwood for Long-Term
Water Supply and authorizing the City Engineer to continue negotiations with
ECCID and CCWD to reach a mutually beneficial agreement for all parties.
On December 14, 1999, the City Council approved Resolution 99-254 approving
the agreements between East Contra Costa Irrigation District (ECCID), Contra
Costa Water District (CCWD) and the City of Brentwood for long-term water
supply, conveyance and treatment.
The agreement between ECCID and Brentwood approved by the City Council in
December of 1999 provided the City with the first right of refusal of 14,800
acre-feet of water annualy to be used for municipal purposes. Additionally,
the City Council approved an agreement with CCWD in December of 1999 to
resolve overlapping service boundaries, provide interim treatment of this
new found water source at CCWD’s Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant and
required both agencies to continue discussions for long treatment
Staff from CCWD and the City have been analyzing several options to provide
the long term treatment of this water. The options ranged from the City
constructing its own facility adjacent to the Randall-Bold Water Treatment
Plant, jointly expand Randall-Bold with CCWD or construct its own facility
elsewhere. During the analysis of these alternatives it was determined that
a “hybrid” approach was the most optimal and cost effective solution for
both the City and CCWD. This approach consists of the City purchasing 3,200
acre-feet/year of existing treatment capacity in the Randall-Bold Plant and
then constructing a scaled down water treatment facility adjacent to
Randall-Bold in the future. This approach provides substantial savings to
the City as further detailed in the Fiscal Impact portion of this staff
This amendment outlines the details for the purchase of this capacity, sets
the criteria for the cost of treating the water and requires both agencies
to continue working out the details pertaining to the “hybrid” alternative
The cost associated with the purchase of the 3,200 acre-feet/year is 10
Million Dollars and shall be paid over two years interest free. This amount
has been accounted for in the Development Fee Program and was budgeted for
in CIP 562-5629 as a part of the construction of a new facility.
For purposes of comparison, the average construction cost for an equivalent
water treatment facility would have been approximately $2.00/gallon or
Twelve Million Dollars, which does not include design, management or
administrative costs. The net capitol savings for this “hybrid” alternative
is 2 Million Dollars.
Since Brentwood will own the capacity right, the debt service or “rental”
portion of our current water treatment costs will no longer be applicable.
Therefore, Brentwood’s cost to treat an acre-foot of water will be reduced
from $450 to $274. The reduced treatment amount paid per acre-foot shall be
variable and will be based upon the total treated water used and the maximum
month. However, this is how the current rates are calculated and therefore
the reduction shall be proportional. The estimated annual savings is
calculated below using the projected water consumption numbers for this
3,000 acre-feet x $450/acre-foot = $1,350,000
3,000 acre-feet x $274/acre-foot = $ 822,000
Estimated Annual Savings = $528,000
It is anticipated that these savings will be used to establish a reserve
fund for operations as well as to save for the new facility that is
anticipated within the next several years. By saving these funds now the
City is able to minimize the anticipated rate increases typically associated
with the capital and operational cost of these facilities.

Municipal Corporation herein referred to as “Brentwood.”
1. RECITALS OF FACT
A. East Contra Costa Irrigation District (“ECCID”) and CCWD entered into an
agreement, dated May 16, 1990, wherein ECCID irrevocably dedicated 21,000
acre-feet annually (afa) of its 50,000 acre-feet confirmed annual water
right to Municipal and Industrial (M&I) use, and of said 21,000 afa, sold to
CCWD a permanent entitlement to use 8,000 afa (Block A), along with options
on 7,000 afa (Block B) to be exercised by December 31, 1999, and 6,000 afa
(Block C) to be exercised by December 31, 2009.
B. ECCID, CCWD and the California Department of Water Resources (“DWR”)
entered into an agreement dated April 11, 1991, and further amended that
agreement on February 7, 2000, wherein it was agreed that CCWD could pump
ECCID water for M&I use at its Rock Slough and Old River intakes, and could
serve ECCID water within CCWD and within an area corresponding to ECCID’s
water right place of use.
C. CCWD and the Diablo Water District entered into an agreement dated June
6, 1989, wherein CCWD and DWD agreed to build and operate the Randall-Bold
Water Treatment Plant and agreed to cost sharing for the project.
D. Brentwood and CCWD entered into an agreement dated October 19, 1995,
whereby CCWD sold to Brentwood a permanent entitlement to use 7,000 afa of
said Block A water, and whereby CCWD further agreed to negotiate with
Brentwood concerning the remaining said Blocks B and C under Section 2.i
thereof, which has been fully complied with.

as specified in Section 2.c of the October 19, 1995 agreement.
F. ECCID and CCWD have entered into an Agreement effective January 1, 2000
which provides for the permanent entitlement of 8,200 afa to be served in
CCWD and for an additional 4,000 afa to be available to CCWD in shortage
periods and which provides for payments to ECCID by CCWD for the water used,
and which supersedes the ECCID-CCWD agreement dated May 16, 1990.
G. Brentwood and ECCID have entered into an Agreement dated December 14,
1999 which provides for the permanent entitlement of 14,800 afa from ECCID

and ECCID, dated December 14, 1999, or in the agreement between CCWD and
ECCID, effective January 1, 2000, that supersedes and replaces the May 16,
I. Brentwood and CCWD have found it in their best interests to enter into
this Agreement effective January 1, 2000, in order to provide for their
long-term water supplies, to allocate costs of meeting those supplies, to
provide the basis for a potential long-term agreement between CCWD and
Brentwood for conveyance and treatment of Brentwood’s water, and to resolve
potential conflicts regarding service in overlapping service boundaries by
providing a means by which Brentwood can lawfully serve water to customers
in CCWD’s territory.

3. LONG TERM WATER SUPPLY FOR BRENTWOOD
A. Brentwood and CCWD shall equitably share the costs of CCWD’s past
payments required to maintain its entitlement to the ECCID water subject to
the May 16, 1990 ECCID-CCWD Agreement. The total amount Brentwood is
obligated to reimburse is approximately $586,000 (64.4% of the total
payments through December 31, 1999 to ECCID [$2,350,000] less annual
payments by Brentwood under the October 19, 1995 Agreement for Block A less
any quarterly payments on the reimbursement already made). These past
entitlement payments represent a buy-down cost per acre-foot of water as
stated in the ECCID-Brentwood Agreement dated December 14, 1999.
B. Brentwood may continue to finance this reimbursement, provided that the
final payment shall be made on or before December 31, 2006. The District
shall invoice Brentwood on an annual basis starting with January 1, 2000
following a request to finance. Invoices shall be due and payable upon
receipt. The rate of interest paid to CCWD for financing the reimbursement
shall be six percent (6%).
C. Nothing is this agreement shall be construed to change or alter any
provisions of CCWD’s agreements with ECCID or ECCID and DWR.
D. City purchase of a 6 mgd capacity right at Randall-Bold to serve City
customers in the CCWD service area (a.k.a. overlap area, refer to Section
i. The City of Brentwood hereby purchases and CCWD hereby sells to the City
the treatment capacity right to treat up to 3,200 acre-feet (AF) of water
per year at Randall-Bold. The maximum daily usage of this treatment capacity
right shall not exceed 6 mgd. The City will not own the treatment capacity
in title, but will have a reserved capacity right at Randall-Bold for the
life of the facilities.
ii. The capacity right will be made available to Brentwood using CCWD’s
share of the plant capacity. It is the intent of the District to provide
treated water to Brentwood in accordance with the terms of Article 7 of the
Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) dated June 6, 1989 between CCWD and DWD. The
District may also elect, from time to time, to deliver water to the City
from its Bollman Water Treatment Plant. Should treated water be delivered
from the Bollman Water Treatment Plant, for payment purposes, the water will
be paid for as though it had been produced and delivered from the RBWTP.
iii. The cost for the 6 mgd capacity right shall not exceed $10,000,000 (Ten
Million dollars). Within 30 days of executing this amendment, the City shall
pay half the amount due ($5,000,000) to CCWD. The remainder of the payment
($5,000,000) shall be due one year later upon written notification from CCWD.
iv. CCWD shall be responsible for the quantity and quality of the treated
water up to the discharge side of the pump station as further described in
Section 4.D.ii. The City shall responsible for the water quality downstream
of this location.
v. If and when capital improvements are made to the treatment processes at
Randall-Bold specifically to meet state or federally mandated regulatory
requirements, the City shall pay its proportionate share based on its
vi. In the event it becomes necessary to make capital improvements the City
shall be consulted in advance of the work and agreement will be reached as
to the scope of the project, the proportionate share of costs to be
allocated to the City, and the timing for repayment. The key principle for
reaching such an agreement is that the City’s share of repayment shall be
proportionate to the benefits received from the improvement. The City shall
not be responsible for paying any costs associated with CCWD or DWD
expansions that do not benefit the City.
E. New Treated Water Pump Station and Pipeline at Randall-Bold Water
Treatment Plant to Serve the City of Brentwood
i. The City shall build a pump station and pipeline at the Randall-Bold site
to convey treated water produced by CCWD to the City’s distribution system.
The new facilities will be used on an interim basis to convey water treated
as described in Section 4. The facilities will remain in use after the
interim period to pump water treated at Randall-Bold using the City’s
capacity right as described in Section 3.D.
ii. The City shall pay all costs associated with the project and shall enter
into an agreement with CCWD to specify the responsibilities of both parties
during design, construction and operation of the project.
iii. As further defined in the separate design and construction agreement,
final inspection and acceptance of the project shall be by the City and CCWD
. After final acceptance, the City shall transfer ownership of the pump
station to CCWD.
iv. Both CCWD and the City agree that the purpose of the pump station is to
provide treated potable water to Brentwood. The City will be consulted by
the CCWD if any future modifications to this use are contemplated. If future
modifications involve use of the pump station to convey water to any party
other than Brentwood, the parties shall negotiate the requirements for
reimbursing a portion of Brentwood ’s capital cost to build the facility as
well as any applicable replacement, maintenance and depreciation costs. This
reimbursement shall be based upon the ratio of benefit to be provided or in
other words total flow provided in gallons per minute measured at a mutually
v. CCWD will provide an easement to the City for maintenance of the portion
of treated water pipeline built on CCWD-owned property. The cost of the
easement shall be determined by a property appraiser mutually agreeable to
both parties. The City shall prepare all documents and pay all costs
associated with the property assessment, preparing and recording the
vi. The City shall own and maintain the entire pipeline in perpetuity. The
City shall, at its sole expense, remove the pipeline if for any reason in
the future it is abandoned. If the pipeline breaks and causes collateral
damage, the City is responsible unless said damage is due to the sole
willful negligence of CCWD. The City will be permitted access to the
pipeline as well as the pump station as needed for maintenance or
inspections. For security reasons, access to the site shall be controlled by
vii. In addition to the water delivery provisions of Section 8.D, the City
and CCWD shall develop a procedure for scheduling water deliveries that
meets the needs of the City and does not adversely impact the operations of
F. Commitments, Responsibilities and Schedule for Implementing A Long-term
Treated Water Agreement
i. The City and CCWD shall collectively establish the “Principles of
Agreement” for a long-term treated water supply agreement by December 31,
2003 and have construction of all new facilities substantially completed and
ready for operation before expiration of the January 2000 Agreement
(December 31, 2006).
ii. The long-term agreement shall address treatment of the City’s ECCID
supply for customers outside the overlap area at a new treatment facility
located on Randall-Bold property and separate from facilities that treat
water for customers in the overlap area. The new facility will supplement
the 6 mgd capacity right from Randall-Bold described in Section 3.D. The new
treatment facility shall be initially sized for a firm10 mgd capacity and
will be expandable to approximately 30 mgd. The facility will consist of new
conventional treatment processes and will also utilize a number of existing
Randall-Bold support facilities including but not limited to the operations
building, laboratory, power supply, roads and other infrastructure, and some
chemical storage and metering facilities.
iii. The long-term agreement shall also address conveyance of the City’s
ECCID raw water supply through CCWD-owned facilities. The agreement shall
provide for costs for use of the existing facilities and costs for
construction of new conveyance facilities in the future to meet the City’s
and CCWD’s conveyance needs.”
4. TREATED WATER SERVICE TO BRENTWOOD
A. Project Description
i. CCWD shall convey and treat water obtained by Brentwood under the
Agreement described in Section 2.A.v of this Agreement, (hereafter
“Brentwood’s ECCID water”) at the 40 million gallon per day (mgd)
Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant (Treatment Plant) using CCWD’s 25 mgd
share (rather than DWD's 15 mgd share) of the capacity of that plant.
ii. Unless Brentwood is unable to meet its transmission needs through its
existing agreement with Diablo Water District (DWD), water thus treated
shall be delivered to Brentwood through the distribution system of DWD,
under the existing agreement between DWD and Brentwood. In the event that
Brentwood is unable to meet its transmission needs through its existing
Agreement with DWD, Brentwood shall have the right to design, construct and
install a transmission line directly into the Randall-Bold Water Treatment
Plant. CCWD shall make all connections between this line and the
Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant facilities at Brentwood’s sole cost. CCWD
shall cooperate fully with Brentwood in the design, siting, and the
construction of such transmission line, should it become necessary;
provided, however, that all costs associated with such transmission line,
including CCWD’s costs of inspections, connections and other costs of the
transmission line, shall be borne by Brentwood as described in the “Design
and Construction of Water Facilities Agreement” between CCWD and the City.
iii. Use of Brentwood’s ECCID water diverted, conveyed and treated by CCWD
under this Agreement shall be in accordance with all applicable terms and
conditions of the December 14, 1999 Agreement between Brentwood and ECCID,
and the agreement dated April 11, 1991 among DWR, ECCID and CCWD, as
amended. If either agreement has been superseded and replaced by subsequent
agreements among those parties, then Brentwood’s use of ECCID water shall be
in accordance with the agreements then in effect.
iv. It is the intent of CCWD to provide treated water to Brentwood in
accordance with the terms of Article 7 of the Joint Powers Agreement (JPA)
dated June 6, 1989 between CCWD and DWD.
B. Temporary Disruption of Service
i. The parties recognize that CCWD may be required by operational
constraints from regulatory requirements, emergency conditions, court order
or otherwise to curtail some or all of its diversions of Brentwood’s ECCID
water. In such circumstances, CCWD shall provide Brentwood with as much
advance written notice of any curtailments of ECCID water diversions as is
practical. The notice will be directed to the City Engineer at the City of
Brentwood, 150 City Park Way, Brentwood, California 94513, via U.S. mail and
via telecopier. In the notice, CCWD shall inform Brentwood of the reason for
curtailing the diversion, the portion of the diversion to be curtailed and
the anticipated duration. In the event of an emergency threatening imminent
harm to human life or property, CCWD shall notify Brentwood that the ECCID
water diversions will be curtailed at the earliest possible time, and shall
keep Brentwood informed of the status and extent of the diversions, and the
expected time the diversions will be curtailed, until the emergency
situation is resolved and regular diversion service is restored.
ii. Provision of Water during Disruption of Services based on Connections
within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area (see Exhibit 4 for CCWD/Brentwood
In such circumstances as described in Subsection 4.B.i wherein CCWD is
unable to divert some or all of Brentwood’s ECCID water, CCWD shall furnish
other water to Brentwood for use by Brentwood’s customers in an amount
equivalent to 0.67 afa per purchased equivalent 5/8 inch connection (a
typical residential connection) within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area and
for which Brentwood has paid applicable rates and charges as described in
Section 4.C.iii. The water thus furnished shall be in a quantity consistent
with CCWD’s Code of Regulations and policies with reductions proportionate
to the reductions, if any, in the quantities then being furnished to CCWD’s
wholesale municipal customers, and shall be consistent with the terms as
described in Section 5.E.
iii. Provision for Additional Water during Disruption of Services for
Connections outside CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area:
a. Further in such circumstances as described in Section 4.B.i wherein CCWD
is unable to divert some or all of Brentwood’s ECCID water, CCWD may, but is
not required to, agree to furnish other water to Brentwood in addition to
the water described in Subsection 4.B.ii and 5.E.i and ii up to the same
total quantity that would have otherwise been diverted under this Agreement,
for use by Brentwood outside of CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area. CCWD’s
right to terminate this agreement under Section 9 shall not be affected by
the preceding sentence or by CCWD’s agreement hereunder to furnish and treat
water other than Brentwood’s ECCID water.
b. If pursuant to the preceding subparagraph CCWD agrees to furnish and
treat other water for Brentwood for use outside of CCWD’s Los Vaqueros
Service Area, Brentwood shall at its cost make available to CCWD the same
quantity of water for use by CCWD. The water shall be provided at such a
time and in such a location that CCWD can divert (or redivert) and convey
such water directly to storage in a reservoir owned by CCWD or, at CCWD’s
sole discretion, directly to CCWD’s customers.
iv. CCWD may temporarily reduce the quantities of water delivered, or may
discontinue the delivery of water, to Brentwood to enable CCWD to perform
necessary inspection, repair, or replacement of any portion of the
facilities that are then used to divert, convey and treat the water
confirmed for use by Brentwood. CCWD shall provide Brentwood with as much
advance notice as is practicable of any such discontinuance of, or reduction
in the delivery of water to Brentwood. CCWD shall not be liable for failure
to deliver water to Brentwood if such failure is caused by any reason beyond
the reasonable control of CCWD.
i. General Principles
a. Rates for conveyance and treated water service shall reimburse CCWD for
the actual operating, maintenance, and administrative costs of conveying the
water to and of treating the water at the Randall-Bold Water Treatment
Plant, and a prorated value for wear and tear of the conveyance and
Treatment Plant facilities.
b. Such rates for conveyance and treated water service shall include a
charge for the use of debt funded facilities (for treatment of above and
beyond the 6 mgd daily maximum described in Section 3.D at the Randall-Bold
Water Treatment Plant, conveyance facilities and the occasional use of Los
Vaqueros Project conveyance facilities) which shall provide compensation for
interest costs, but not principal. By purchasing the capacity right, the
City will not be required to pay interest or principal for treatment of up
to 6 mgd daily maximum or 3,200 acre-feet annually at Randall-Bold.
c. Inasmuch as this Agreement is for an interim period, by paying such rates
Brentwood will not be purchasing capacity rights in District facilities,
except as described in Section 3.D. and 5.D herein.
d. CCWD shall invoice and Brentwood shall pay for the delivery and treatment
of water on a monthly basis unless other financial arrangements are made.
ii. For raw water service for Brentwood’s customers outside the Los Vaqueros
Service Area of CCWD, Brentwood shall pay on a monthly basis unless other
financial arrangements are made, for the following:
a. The operating, maintenance and administrative costs of diverting and
delivering the water to the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant and a
prorated value for wear and tear of facilities. These charges are exclusive
of the charges set forth in Section 3 and Subsection 4.C.iii through v, and
are calculated as set forth in Exhibit 1, and are subject to adjustment from
time-to-time based on actual costs.
b. The occasional use of Los Vaqueros Project pumping and conveyance
facilities if CCWD is unable to divert ECCID water at its Rock Slough intake
and these facilities are used to divert and convey the ECCID supply to the
Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant. CCWD shall attempt to minimize use of
Los Vaqueros Project facilities for conveying Brentwood’s ECCID water, to
the extent it is consistent with CCWD’s water quality goals, operational and
regulatory constraints. The costs to be reimbursed for the use of Los
Vaqueros Project pumping and conveyance facilities to serve water outside of
the Los Vaqueros Service Area of CCWD are the prorated share of the sum of
fixed operation and maintenance costs, variable operation and maintenance
costs, and Los Vaqueros debt service costs for interest only, as set forth
in Exhibit 1 and are subject to adjustment from time to time by CCWD’s Board
of Directors. Such rates shall be based upon those adopted from time-to-time
and published in CCWD’s Code of Regulations.
iii. For water service for all Brentwood’s customers within the Los Vaqueros
Service Area of CCWD, Brentwood shall pay to CCWD on a monthly basis:
a. The full cost of service (including principal and interest costs for the
use of Los Vaqueros facilities) for wholesale raw water as set forth in the
wholesale municipal rate in CCWD’s Code of Regulations Section 5.20.010, as
amended from time to time by CCWD’s Board of Directors, less the portion
thereof associated with the cost of water obtained from the United States
Bureau of Reclamation from the Central Valley Project (CVP) not used, plus
the costs associated with delivery of ECCID water, as set forth in Exhibit
2. For the purposes of establishing a meter size and a water use capacity
for Brentwood for such service to customers in CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service
Area, the Brentwood meter size and water use capacity shall be 0.67 afa and
1,200 gpd maximum day for each actual equivalent 5/8 inch meter connection
in CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area.
b. For each added or enlarged meter within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area,
a facilities component of the wholesale municipal rate in the amount
specified in the applicable table in Section 5.20.010F of CCWD’s Code of
Regulations, as amended from time to time by CCWD’s Board of Directors, less
the portion of said component associated with the cost of future water
supply, as set forth in Exhibit 2, “Connection Fee”. This amount has been
included in the City of Brentwood Development Fee Program which spreads this
cost equitably among the various types of new development and will be
tendered to CCWD as specified below.
c. Brentwood shall pay annually to CCWD the facilities component of the
wholesale municipal rate as described in the preceding paragraph for its
actual and anticipated future connections, in an amount for a minimum of 239
equivalent 5/8 inch connections per year, for twenty years, to a total of
4,780 equivalent 5/8 inch meter connections. For each connection over 4,780
equivalent 5/8 inch meter connections, Brentwood shall pay the applicable
charge at the time the meter is issued. In the event this agreement is
terminated, Brentwood shall pay CCWD for all actual connections not yet
paid. The initial payment shall be made January 3, 2000 and shall be due on
January 1 of each year thereafter with the last payment due January 1, 2019.
Brentwood shall receive the benefits described in Section 5.D and 5.E for
each connection, entirely within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area, for which
the applicable rates and charges have been paid and continue to be paid. In
addition, at any time during the term of this Agreement, Brentwood may
notify CCWD that Brentwood does not intend to annex or serve water to all or
any portion of the area within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area not
currently within the City limits. If Brentwood presents sufficient
information to CCWD either that development of such area will not take place
or that water service to such area will be provided by another entity, the
parties may agree to reduce the number of equivalent residential connections
for which Brentwood is obligated to pay under this Agreement by those
connections that had been projected to occur within such area. Such
agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld.
iv. In addition to the foregoing charges, for water treatment services under
this Agreement, Brentwood shall pay to CCWD on a monthly basis, unless other
financial arrangements are made, the operating, maintenance and
administrative costs of treating the water at the Randall-Bold Water
Treatment Plant, and a prorated value for wear and tear of facilities. Such
rates for conveyance and treated water service shall include a charge for
the use of debt funded facilities (for treatment of above and beyond the 6
mgd daily maximum described in Section 3.D at the Randall-Bold Water
Treatment Plant, conveyance facilities and the occasional use of Los
Vaqueros Project conveyance facilities) which shall provide compensation for
interest costs, but not principal. By purchasing the capacity right, the
City will not be required to pay interest or principal for treatment of up
to 6 mgd daily maximum or 3,200 acre-feet annually at Randall-Bold. These
charges are exclusive of the charges set forth in Section 3 and Section
4.C.ii and 4.C.iii of this Agreement, and are calculated as set forth in
Exhibit 3, and shall be based on actual costs.
D. Measurement of Quantities of Water
i. The quantity of raw water conveyed under this Agreement shall be the
quantity measured at the point of diversion from either CCWD’s intakes at
Old River or Rock Slough or ECCID’s intake at Indian Slough or a combination
ii. The quantity of water treated at the Randall Bold Water Treatment Plant
for purposes of this Agreement shall be the quantity measured at the flow
meter at the intertie with DWD and/or at the flow meter at the discharge
side of the treated water pump station described in Section 3.E, plus plant
losses as calculated in subparagraph iii. After the pump station is
operational and upon written notification from the City, the City’s water
quantities will be measured solely at the pump station discharge.
iii. Any water losses due to the treatment process will be apportioned
annually based on Brentwood's proportion of total flow through the
Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant. Loss in the Treatment Plant is defined
as the difference between water measured at the intake meter and water
measured at the effluent meter. Brentwood's portion of this loss is the
ratio of the quantity measured at the intertie meter and adjusted for
distribution system losses to the quantity measured at the effluent meter.
Loss will be determined within sixty (60) days of the close of the fiscal
year and included in the payment reconciliation called for in Section 8D.
iv. The estimated quantity of losses and payment for losses occurring
between the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant and the intertie have been
accounted for in the Agreement between DWD and Brentwood dated September 9,
1996 and amended May 12, 1998.
E. Water Quality
i. CCWD is solely responsible for ensuring the quality of water, and for all
aspects of compliance with applicable water quality regulations and
standards, up to the discharge flange of the treated water pumps described
in Section 3.E. Subject to the preceding provisions of this paragraph,
Brentwood shall be responsible to receive and respond to communications from
customers within the City of Brentwood relating to water quality concerns.
ii. Brentwood acknowledges that chloramine is used in the Randall-Bold Water
Treatment Plant as the residual disinfectant, rather than chlorine as used
by Brentwood. Brentwood shall be fully responsible for all issues related to
the mixing of treated CCWD water with chlorinated Brentwood water, including
but not limited to dealing with all regulatory agency issues related to
disinfection and disinfection by-products.
5. OVERLAPPING SERVICE BOUNDARY RESOLUTION
A. In order to avoid overlapping service boundary conflicts and comply with
restrictions on service to lands burdened by liens for indebtedness under
general obligation bonds and/or subject to contracts with the United States,
Brentwood covenants and agrees that at no time hereafter will Brentwood
distribute or permit the use of any water under its control within the
territory of CCWD, as it exists on the effective date of this Agreement
except as provided for in Sections 5.B, 5.C, 5.D, and 5.E of the Agreement.
B. It is mutually understood and agreed upon that all past and future
annexations of territory into Brentwood approved by LAFCO shall serve as
notification to CCWD of Brentwood’s intent to distribute or serve water
within the newly annexed territory. Brentwood shall not distribute or serve
water to customers of CCWD, outside of the City of Brentwood City limits,
without CCWD’s express written permission, and the express written
permission of the wholesale municipal customer of CCWD, if any, into whose
territory or sphere of influence such water would be served. In addition,
Brentwood shall not distribute or serve water to any of CCWD’s existing
wholesale or retail customers without CCWD’s express written permission, and
shall not distribute or serve water to any retail customers of CCWD’s
existing wholesale customers without the express written permission of the
affected wholesale municipal customer.
C. Brentwood understands and agrees, on its own behalf and on behalf of its
customers, that CCWD is not, and shall not, become obligated to provide
water from the facilities comprising the Los Vaqueros Project for use by
Brentwood outside the Los Vaqueros Service Area of CCWD.
D. Brentwood shall receive the benefits, rights, privileges and obligations
of all other CCWD municipal raw water customers, for each and every
connection, and only those connections, providing water service entirely
within CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area for which the applicable rates and
charges have been paid and continue to be paid, as set forth in Section 4.C,
including 4.C.iii. The benefits shall not accrue to any connection outside
of CCWD’s Los Vaqueros Service Area.
E. Emergency use. In such circumstances as described in subsection 4.B.i,
CCWD shall provide to Brentwood water of the following quantities and rates.
i. Pursuant to Subsection 4.B.ii, CCWD shall make available to Brentwood an
amount of water not to exceed 0.67 afa for each and every purchased
equivalent 5/8 inch meter connection, and only those connections, for which
Brentwood has paid the applicable charges pursuant to Subsection 4.C.iii.
CCWD may reduce the amount available to Brentwood in a manner proportionate
to the reductions, if any, in CCWD’s Code of Regulations and policies, and
consistent with the quantities being furnished to CCWD’s wholesale municipal
customers. The amount of water furnished under such circumstances shall not
exceed the amount that would have been normally delivered during the same
period in the absence of such circumstance, or 3,202 acre-feet, (4,760
equivalent connections, times 0.67 afa/connection) whichever is less.
ii. For water delivered pursuant to Subsection 5.E.i and 4.B.ii, Brentwood
shall pay the treatment costs as set forth in Subsection 4.C.iv and the then
current wholesale municipal raw water rate as set forth in CCWD’s Code of
Regulations, Section 5.020.010.
iii. Water deliveries under the circumstances described in Subsection 4.B.i
that would exceed the amount set forth in Subsection 5.E.i shall be governed
by Subsection 4.B.iii.

A. Brentwood shall be the lead agency and shall be fully responsible for all
environmental compliance including permits and CEQA approvals associated
with its purchase and use of the ECCID water supply, interim treatment at
the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant, the purchase of a capacity right at
the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant described in Section 3.D,
construction and use of the pump station described in Section 3.E,
construction and use of long-term treatment facilities described in Section
3.F, and distribution to its customers. Environmental compliance shall be at
Brentwood’s sole cost. CCWD will provide assistance to the City as needed to
develop the required environmental documentation.
B. CCWD’s performance under this Agreement shall not conflict with its
permits or other service agreements, including the Joint Powers Agreement
with DWD, the CCWD/ECCID/DWR Agreement dated April 11, 1991, as amended,
bond documents or state water rights permits. If any agreement has been
superseded or replaced by subsequent agreement, bond documents or state
water rights permits, then CCWD’s performance shall not conflict with the
agreements, bond documents and water rights permits in effect.
C. Specific interim water service arrangements under this Agreement shall be
consistent with conditions placed on CCWD and the Contra Costa Water
Authority concerning the operation of the Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant
owned jointly by CCWD and DWD.
D. Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent Brentwood from acquiring
additional sources of water, exclusive of waters that are subject to the
agreement between CCWD and ECCID.
A. Each party may at its expense conduct a financial audit of the other
party in matters pertinent to this Agreement upon written request.
B. An audit shall not be conducted more frequently than annually and the
right to audit shall not exceed the four fiscal years preceding and
including the notice of audit. Each party will maintain true and complete
records and will retain such records for at least four years. Any claim
arising from the audit will not be barred by the statute of limitations so
long as the claim is filed within one year of commencing the audit.

Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for State and Local Governments.
D. In the event the audit determines that Brentwood has either been
overcharged or undercharged for the services provided by CCWD under this
Agreement, Brentwood shall either be credited against future charges for the
amount it overpaid or pay CCWD the additional amount owed.
8. SCHEDULE FOR TREATED WATER SERVICE
A. Brentwood shall notify CCWD of any amendments or changes in the executed
agreement with DWD for the conveyance of the water treated by the
Randall-Bold Water Treatment Plant to Brentwood through the DWD conveyance
system and the distribution plans.
B. Nothing in this Agreement shall obligate CCWD to provide long-term
conveyance nor treatment of more than 3,200 acre-feet per year for Brentwood
of water obtained from any source of supply after December 31, 2006, except
that, should Brentwood and CCWD have reached an agreement for long-term
conveyance and/or treatment of water prior to December 1, 2003, and
implementation of such an agreement extends beyond December 31, 2006, CCWD
may extend treated water service beyond the 3,200 acre-feet per year under
this Agreement until these facilities are operational.
C. On or before December 1 of each year, Brentwood shall submit in writing a
proposed monthly delivery schedule for the ensuing year beginning January 1
of the following year. The proposed delivery schedule shall be in the form
provided by CCWD and shall indicate the approximate amounts of treated water
desired by Brentwood during each month of the ensuing year. Brentwood's
anticipated monthly delivery schedule shall not constitute a commitment by
Brentwood to receive the amount of water set forth therein but shall
establish the monthly scheduled amounts of treated water to be delivered to
Brentwood for planning and budgetary purposes. Rates and charges which are
based on delivery amounts will be set for the ensuing fiscal year based on
this schedule. Brentwood may submit to CCWD a revised delivery schedule from
time to time as it is required by factors or events beyond the reasonable
control of Brentwood. Within sixty (60) days of the close of each fiscal
year, Brentwood shall pay, or receive a refund for, any costs which varied
from the estimated amounts.
A. No part of this agreement or amendment may be modified or terminated
without written concurrence of each agency’s governing body. It is further
understood by the City and CCWD that the 6 mgd capacity right purchased
shall be for the life of the facility as further described herein.

District Legal Counsel
EXHIBIT 1 – Costs for Water Service to Brentwood Customers Outside CCWD
The principle is reimbursement of actual O&M costs for pumping and conveying
ECCID water, plus wear and tear and rental of facilities. Wear and tear is
based upon the current depreciated booked value of the raw water system
(exclusive of Los Vaqueros Project [“LVP”]facilities) and rental on the
interest only portion of any debt service for raw water facilities
(exclusive of LVP facilities). Costs per acre-foot are based on actual costs
divided by total sales of water delivered (actual rates will vary based upon
the total annual usage in acre-feet and the maximum month in acre-feet;
typically the per acre-foot cost for treatment will decrease as more water
is used). Annual rates are set based on estimated costs with an annual
adjustment per Section 8.D.
The example costs assumes rates in effect as of June 2002, and assumes total
Brentwood consumption of 2,555 af/yr as measured at the Randall-Bold
Treatment Plant and an average of the three maximum months of usage of 483
af/month (5.3 mgd). For raw water pumping and conveyance charges, losses
(which run between 5% and 7%) are added to the amount of water leaving the
Treatment Plant to determine the total amount of water pumped from the
Delta. Charges for raw water pumping and conveyance are based on the total
water pumped from the Delta. Treatment charges are based on the total water
treated (water leaving the plant plus treatment plant losses).
COMPONENT Example Cost for 2002
($ per af) BASIS FOR ACTUAL CHARGES
Raw Water O&M $69.44/af Raw water operations and maintenance of raw water
facilities exclusive of Los Vaqueros Project O&M and CVP water and power

and Rental are based on depreciated value and the interest only portion of
the debt service, respectively.”
Optional Charges As specified in section 4.c.ii.B
Interest on LV debt $200.24/af Debt service interest allocated to wholesale
municipal customers applied to the quantity for Brentwood measured at the

EXHIBIT 2 – Costs for Water Service to Brentwood Customers Within CCWD
The principle is the District charges for wholesale raw water for municipal
customers with a non-recording meter, with adjustments for purchased water
and power. Rates shall be based assuming a meter necessary to supply 0.67
afa or 1200 gpd maximum day per actual connection (typical 5/8” service
connection) and total water use capacity is based on the number of actual
equivalent connections times 0.67 afa or 1200 gpd maximum day. Rates are as
established in the CCWD code of regulations and are subject to change from
time-to-time by the CCWD Board of Directors.
This example assumes rates in effect as of June 30, 2002 . The principle is
full cost of service based on CCWD’s municipal wholesale, non-recording
metered service, less the direct purchase costs of CVP water, plus the added
costs of delivering ECCID water.”

EXHIBIT 3 – Costs for Water Treatment Service to Brentwood Customers
The principle is cost of service (O&M and fixed costs) for treatment of
water at the Randall-Bold treatment plant, wear and tear and rental for
treatment above 6 mgd. Per acre-foot charges are based on delivered water
adjusted for transmission and plant losses. Fixed charges and rental are
based on the average of the three largest months of use to date (in million
gallons per day [mgd]) divided by CCWD’s capacity (25 mgd).
This example assumes costs as of June 30, 2002 , and assumes total Brentwood
consumption of 2,555 af/yr as measured at the Treatment Plant (i.e.,
including losses through the DWD system) and maximum month of 483 af.
Treatment plant losses are added to the water leaving the plant. Charges
will be based on Brentwood’s share of actual costs.”
COMPONENT Example cost for 2002
($ per af) BASIS FOR ACTUAL CHARGES
Fixed $97.44/af Ratio of Brentwood’s 6 mgd capacity right to CCWD’s 25 mgd
(i.e. 6/25ths), multiplied by CCWD’s share of the fixed costs per the JPA
with DWD. If the average of the three largest months of use is greater than
6 mgd, then the actual average of the three largest months will be used to
calculate the ratio.. This is adjusted annually.
Variable $50.66/af Ratio of Brentwood’s volume to total volume treated at
the plant multiplied by CCWD’s variable costs for treatment. This is
Interest on RBWTP debt $0/af Rental fee for use of the plant for treatment
in excess of 6 mgd. Based on the ratio of three largest months use (service
to date) to 25mgd, multiplied by CCWD’s share of interest on the debt for
the plant. If the average of the three largest months is less than 6 mgd
then the rental fee will be waived. If greater than 6 mgd, then the rental
fee will be based on the ratio of three largest months use (less 6 mgd) to
25 mgd, multiplied by CCWD’s share of interest on the debt for the plant.
For example if the three month average is 7 mgd, Brentwood would pay 1/25ths
of CCWD’s debt service payment.,
Wear and Tear $26.77/af Ratio of Brentwood’s annual average day use to
25mgd, multiplied by book value of RBWTP depreciated over 30 years
