CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 8


Meeting Date: April 24, 2007

Subject/Title: Approve a Resolution adopting the Amendment to the 2005 Urban Water Management Plan as recommended by and approved by the California Department of Water Resources.

Prepared by: Diana Williford, Water Conservation/Reclamation Specialist
Chris Ehlers, Deputy Director of Public Works

Submitted by: Bailey Grewal, Director of Public Works



RECOMMENDATION
Approve a Resolution adopting the Amendment to the 2005 Urban Water Management Plan as recommended by and approved by the California Department of Water Resources (DWR).

PREVIOUS ACTION
On May 11, 1999, by Resolution No. 99-118, City Council authorized the City Manager to sign the California Urban Water Conservation Council’s Memorandum of understanding Regarding Urban Water Conservation.

On January 10, 2006, by Resolution No. 2006-006, City Council adopted the 2005 Urban Water Management Plan as submitted by Brown and Caldwell, Environmental Engineers and Consultants.

BACKGROUND
The DWR State Water Resources Control Board Urban Water Management Planning Act (Act) requires every urban water supplier providing water for municipal purposes to more than 3,000 customers to adopt and submit an Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) to the California Department of Water Resources every five years.

The adopted 2005 UWMP was submitted to the DWR in February, 2006. As required by the Act, it provides the analysis of water conservation measures in accordance with the guidelines of the California Urban Water Conservation Council and it serves as the long-term water supply plan for the City of Brentwood water system. Once submitted, DWR has a one-year period for review and comment.

The DWR State Water Resources Control Board has reviewed and commented on our 2005 UWMP, and the City has responded to and modified the Plan to the approval of the DWR. Upon adoption of the Amendment to the 2005 UWMP by Council, the Amendment will be forwarded to the DWR for finalization.

FISCAL IMPACT
There are no costs associated with the Amendment to the UWMP. The submittal of the UWMP ensures compliance with the State Water Resources Control Board, Clean Water Division, State Revolving Fund loan. The City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant is funded through the State Revolving Fund loan.

Attachments:
