RECOMMENDATION
Reject the claim of Pacific Rim Plumbing presented on June 8, 2004 as recommended by the City’s third party adjuster, Contra Costa County Municipal Risk Management Insurance Authority, and the City Attorney.

PREVIOUS ACTION
None

BACKGROUND
On November 13, 2003, Pacific Rim Plumbing, owner of property at 8360 Lone Tree Way, attempted to connect a sewer line at 8360 Lone Tree Way to the lateral sewer line, which backed up. Claimant alleged that on November 14, 2003, the City had no one available to dig up the lateral and located the problem. The claim in the amount of $3,620 is for the costs of digging up the sewer line, locating the proper lateral and making the connection.

Engineering staff has indicated that sewer stubs were installed to properties along Lone Tree Way west of Brentwood Boulevard as part of the roadway improvements constructed by the City in 1998. The stub located in the field on November 14, 2003 was in the location per the plan. The City installed a sewer stub to 8370 Lone Tree Way, which is east of the subject property, and owned by the same individual as 8360 Lone Tree Way.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact at this time.
