CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 13

Meeting Date: July 13, 2004

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution certifying the mitigated Negative Declaration for the Zone I Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630 and authorize staff to move forward with the project.

Prepared by: Engineering: P. Eldredge

Submitted by: Engineering: B. Grewal

RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution certifying the mitigated Negative Declaration for the Zone I Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630.

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 27, 2003, by Resolution No. 2868, City Council adopted the City’s 2003/04 – 2007/08 Capital Improvement Program that included the Zone 1 Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630.

On August 12, 2003, by Resolution No. 2951, City Council authorized the City Manager to execute a Professional Services Agreement with Kimley Horn and Associates for the design of the Zone 1 Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630.

On August 12, 2003, City Council authorized the City Manager to execute a Professional Services Agreement with The Covello Group, Inc., to provide project management assistance for the Zone 1 Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630.
On November 25, 2003, City Council Approved Resolution No. 3033, amending the CIP Budget Sheet for the Zone I Reservoir 1.3, CIP Project No. 562-5630.

BACKGROUND
Good engineering design requires a reservoir capacity equal to the sum of the worst case fire flow requirements, the equalizing volume (typically 40% of the average daily demand), and an average daily volume reserved for emergency purposes.

The equalizing volume is the storage volume required to allow for the differences between the peak hour demand during the day and the uniform pumping rate of the wells and pump stations. The capacity in the reservoirs should be able to make up the difference between the well(s) pumping rate and the peak demand rate and still have fire fighting and emergency capacity available. Typical reservoir design uses an annual average daily volume instead of maximum day volume as the basis for sizing the required storage for each water zone (currently there are three zones in the City and they are distinguished by elevation). This average daily volume is directly proportional to the population of the City and the storage requirement in each zone will continue to grow as the population of the City grows.

The City’s environmental consultant for this project, Jones and Stokes and Associates (JSA), has prepared the subject mitigated Negative Declaration in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), which requires state and local government agencies to consider the environmental consequences of proposed projects. The intent of the mitigated Negative Declaration is to provide information concerning any potential environmental effects of the proposed project and to indicate possible ways to reduce or avoid potential significant effects. It is not the purpose of the mitigated Negative Declaration to either recommend approval or denial of the proposed project.

JSA has investigated and analyzed the environmental impacts of this project and identified appropriate mitigation measures, which are addressed in the mitigated Negative Declaration. Comments have been solicited from the public and affected regulatory agencies. No comments or responses were received either by the City or the State Clearinghouse. All impacts were found to be mitigable to levels of insignificance. A mitigation monitoring program has been developed and incorporated into the mitigated Negative Declaration to ensure that the appropriate mitigation measures are properly administered.

The following categories of environmental effects and recommended mitigation measures were considered in the mitigated Negative Declaration:

• Land Use
• Biological Resources
• Transportation and Circulation
• Air Quality
• Hydrology and Water Quality
• Utilities and Safety
• Noise and Vibration

FISCAL IMPACT
There is no direct fiscal impact associated with approval of the mitigated Negative Declaration. Any costs associated with the appropriate mitigation measures have been accounted for in the project budget and will be implemented during the appropriate phase of the project.
