Title

 

HEARING - Consider recommendations regarding a State Water Project (SWP) Contract Amendments, as follows: (EST. TIME: 20 MIN.)

 

Acting as the Board of Directors, Flood Control and Water Conservation District:

 

a) Consider the request of the Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA) to approve Amendment 20 (Contact Extension Amendment) to the SWP Contract as follows;

 

i) Approve and authorize the Public Works Director or his designee to execute Amendment 20 (Contract Extension) to the SWP Contract contingent upon CCWA’s acknowledgement by an action of its Board that the Transfer of Financial Responsibility Agreement (TFRA) remains in full force;

 

ii) Approve and authorize the Public Works Director or designee to sign the Agreement Confirming the Term of the TFRA; and

 

iii) Certify that the Board, acting as a Responsible Agency, has reviewed and considered the information and environmental effects contained in the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for Amendment 20 to the SWP Contract, and that the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) as Lead Agency found no significant impacts and is the custodian of the records located at <https://ceqanet.opr.ca.gov/2014092036/2>;

 

b) Consider the request of the CCWA to approve Amendment 21 (Water Management Amendment);

 

i) Reject Amendment 21 at this time because CCWA has not addressed the concerns out of District transfers and the impacts on water supply for sales of water out of the County; and

 

ii) Direct staff to continue to work with CCWA staff and return to your Board at a future date if mutually agreeable terms can be reached related to Amendment 21; and

 

c) Determine that the proposed actions are not a project under the California Environmental Quality Act, pursuant to Guidelines Section 15378(b)(5), organization or administrative activities that will not result in a direct or indirect physical change in the environment.
