the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District. All aspects were unanimous and mirrored
the Authority approval except for the item related to Surcharge 2. President Della Sala reported
that the Monterey County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the agreement and

Legal Counsel Freeman spoke to the item indicating the appointed Executive Director Bill
Reichmuth is a licensed professional engineer and risk managers for the member cities have
recommended increasing the Authority’s Special Liability Insurance Policy (SLIP) to cover the
MPRWA in the event of litigation. In order to obtain the increased SLIP, an amendment to the
agreement to include the professional designation is needed and additional funding not to
exceed $3,000 will be required and would be paid through the budget line item contingency
fund. President Della Sala opened the item for public comment and with no requests to speak,
closed public comment and brought the discussion back to the Authority for a motion.
On a motion by Director Edelen, seconded by Director Rubio and carried by the following vote,
the Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority approved the amendment to the contract for
Executive Director Services with the City of Monterey to include Licensed Professional
Engineer in the designation and authorized an increase of insurance premiums, not to exceed
$3,000.

5. Approve and Authorize the President to Execute an Agreement to Form the Monterey
Peninsula Water Supply Project Governance Committee Together with California-American
Water Company, the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District, and the County of
Monterey and Appoint the Water Authority’s Representative to Said Committee
(Discussion/Action)
Action: Discussed and Approved

Della Sala introduced the item as written in the staff report. Executive Director Reichmuth
acknowledged staff who worked diligently on this project. He clarified that the attachment in the
packet is not the final agreement but that some non substantial word changes have been
requested by Cal Am legal counsel. Mr. Reichmuth recommended approval of the agreement
today and again at a future meeting if changes are significant. Legal Counsel Freeman
recommended that the Authority approve the document as written and appoint representative
members at this meeting.
President Della Sala opened the item to public comment. Nelson Vega expressed concern that
too much effort was used to be collegial and he cautioned that with the proposed agreement
the Authority will have less power. He commended the Authority for making unprecedented
progress and creating trust in the community that the project will move forward. Doug Wilhelm
expressed concern that there is no oversight after the facility is constructed and requested
incorporation before adoption.

Bill Hood expressed frustration that specific concerns he provided to the Authority have not
been incorporated, and the document does not allow the Authority any control over the project.
He encouraged revising the document as it does not provide adequate cost control and Cal Am,
being a regulated utility, has no incentive to control costs. He also cautioned about involvement
which would lead to becoming the lead agency for CEQA. Lastly, he cautioned the Authority
about the potential changes Cal Am is making as the history of this negotiation has shown Cal
Am has substantive concerns and the public has allowed the concerns to overrule what their
needs are. He said exercising more control will not hurt Cal Am but will reduce waste and
protect the rate payers.
Sue McCloud appreciated all the efforts to include many public comments in the document. She
brought up the following concerns about the draft agreement:

• Questioned if the Authority reached out to the Desalination Manager in Sand City
• Expressed concern for continuity from the four proposed members of the Governance
Committee due to term limits, and recommended returning to an advisory committee
structure
• Questioned how the MPRWA representative will be able to speak for all six cities
• Discouraged the ability to vote by proxy without hearing full discussions
• Expressed Concern nothing in the document addresses financing yet many decisions
will impact finances

George Riley questioned the term of the Governance Committee of 40 years and questioned if
the intent was for the Authority to also have a 40 year life. Second, he questioned what pre-
construction entailed and was concern that the phase would not be accessible to the public.
With no further requests to speak, President Della Sala closed public comment and staff
responded to public comments.
Director Pendergrass welcomed questions from the Authority regarding the Sand City
Desalination facility as well as working with Cal Am and he indicated they always pushed for a
public-private partnership and have a positive relationship and working experience with the
plant. He indicated he is willing to provide information to the TAC, Authority Directors and the
MPWMD, if requested.
President Della Sala responded to Mrs. McCloud’s comments indicating that the appointed
Governance Committee representative could speak for the Authority with direction provided by
the Authority and would be required to get approval on substantial issues prior to voting. The
financing aspect is still being developed and investigated and the Authority will be taking a
position on financing in the near future. He then spoke to Mr. Riley's comments about the 40
year agreement term and said by the time the water is flowing, this organization will disband.
Legal Counsel Freeman spoke to Mr. Hood’s question and indicated that three CEQA attorneys
reviewed the document to keep the CPUC as lead agency, and to keep from making large
decisions that will help delay the project. He acknowledged that delay is an issue and the goal
is to steer a course that will provide oversight over all categories. What the Authority does not
have oversight over, the CPUC does. Also, it was made to be a Brown Act agency compliant
with the Public Records Act as a way the public can participate and to ensure transparency.

The Authority discussed some of the known unsubstantial changes and discussed the length of
involvement for the Authority. The Directors agreed that there should be no need for the
Governance document and oversight once water is flowing.

President Della Sala opened public comment for selecting a Director to act as the Authority
representative for the Governance Committee. Nelson Vega suggested it be Mayor Della Sala,
because he represents the largest population, has the necessary expertise, and would be an
excellent choice. With no further requests to speak, public comment was closed.
Director Rubio offered his services to the Governance Committee and noted that Supervisor
Potter was appointed to the committee from the Board of Supervisors. Alternate Director
Talmage nominated President Della Sala indicating that continuity is critical and cannot be
overstated. Director Edelen spoke to Director Rubio’s experience but in the interest of continuity
nominated President Della Sala.
On a motion, and carried by the following vote, the Monterey Peninsula Regional Water
Authority appointed Vice President Burnett as the Primary representative to the Governance
Committee and President Della Sala as the alternate representative.

6. Review the First Amended and Restated Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement and Recommend
Execution by Member Cities and the County of Monterey to Add the County of Monterey as a
Member of the Water Authority and to Make Other Modifications to the Agreement
(Discussion/Action)
Action: Discussed and Approved


Legal Counsel Freeman presented the report and indicated that the agreement presented
included two amendments; inclusion of Monterey County as a representative member to the
Authority and deleting the requirement to have an Authority Director to be the Chair of the TAC.
He then clarified that voting on this document does not ensure it will happen but will allow the
California Attorney General to respond to the submitted letter regarding a conflict of interest,
then the agreement must be circulated to each member agency for signature of approval. The
approval requested today is to authorize the two changes to the document and then circulate
among member agencies

President Della Sala opened the item for public comment. Tom Rolwey thanked Legal Counsel
Freeman and spoke to his excellent work then asked for a tentative time table for approval. Bill
hood expressed appreciation for the efforts of the Authority then spoke to the purpose of the
JPA agreement. Appointing the Fifth District Supervisor as a representative with the County
would cause a conflict due to his other affiliations. The conflict does not have to be an actual
conflict of interest, but a potential conflict and does not believe the amendment addresses the
conflict, but instead is a duplication of powers. Nelson Vega indicated it is important to have
County participation because representation for the unincorporated areas is needed. He
cautioned that the Authority wait until the Attorney General responds. He then acknowledged
Director Burnett’s participation at the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District meeting.
Having no more requests to speak, public comment was closed.
Mr. Freeman responded to Mr. Hood's request regarding the County participation indicating the
action taken tonight is just to approve and allow circulation of the changes and further stated
that the County will not participate without the opinion of the Attorney General. Mr. Freeman
then answered questions from the Board.


On a motion by Director Burnett, seconded by Director Rubio, and carried by the following vote,
the Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority Approved the Amendment and Circulation of

the Authority’s budget adjustment and requested that any city that has not approved the
increase please do so in the near future. Director Rubio acknowledged that the City of Seaside
has approved the budget adjustment. Sand City and Del Rey Oaks are still outstanding.

REPORTS FROM BOARD DIRECTORS AND STAFF

President Della Sala invited reports from Directors and Staff. Vice President Burnett noted that
Staff is working with the State Water Resources Control Board and the Coastal Commission to
coordinate permits for the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project (MPWSP). He then
confirmed that Cal Am had submitted their application to City of Marina for the test well project
and he has requested Congressman Farr to assist with coordination of all of the State and
Federal permitting agencies that will be involved. Legal Counsel Freeman informed the

PUBLIC COMMENTS

President Della Sala invited public comments for items not on the agenda. George Riley
questioned a recent conference call regarding the process of the California Public Utilities
Commission (CPUC) evidentiary hearings and the schedule for witness testimony. He
questioned the legitimacy of a comment about settlement discussions and informed the
Authority that they should anticipate litigation. Nelson Vega spoke about recent Monterey City
Council meetings and is concerned there is no consensus. He then requested the Authority be
in communication with The State Water Resources Control Board requesting an extension to
the Cease and Desist order, in the event the MPWSP stalls. President Della Sala clarified that
Council Members are also citizens and have the right to speak their position at any time. Vice
President Burnett commented that staff and Directors are reaching out to the SWRCB but does
not think the timing is ripe for requesting and extension.
Jim Cullem questioned the location of the MPWSP facility and specifically questioned the right-
of-way assessments. He asked if the Directors had considered requesting first rights of refusal
for the public right away then suggested working with the Transportation Agency of Monterey
County (TAMC). Executive Director Reichmuth responded that discussions are being facilitated
and TAMC is in the appraisal process to determine fair market value. The land was purchased
with State Land’s funds, and currently there is no objection for pipeline utilization. Rick Riedl
indicated that portions of the land are owned by the City of Seaside and encouraged

discussions to include the City. Sue McCloud encouraged the televising of the Governance
meetings to ensure access to the public and also requested clarification between the different
Boards and their responsibilities, so there is not duplication of efforts. Lastly, she encouraged
the ability to have information distributed earlier so it could be reviewed by the public prior to
the meeting. Vice President Burnett responded that staff will work to determine the
responsibilities for the different Boards.

AGENDA ITEMS

3. Review and Provide Recommendations on Cal Am Draft Outline of RFQ and List of Qualifications and
Selection Criteria
Action: Recommendations Provided

Vice President Burnett presented the item and reported about the comments made at the Governance
Committee meeting regarding the proposed Request for Qualifications (RFQ). He qualified that under
Category B1 of the Authority adopted policy agreement, the Governance Committee can make a
recommendation and if Cal Am chooses not to follow, they need to provide written documentation. Vice
President Burnett then spoke to the outline in the packet, and to the time frame provided by Cal Am.
They are currently talking with eight qualified firms. The RFQ will be issued by the April 1,
,
2013 to
narrow the field from eight to four firms. In June, 2013 the Request for Proposal (RFP) will be released
with a 90 day response time, and the winning firm will be selected. Vice President Burnett then read a
list of changes to the document suggested by the Governance Committee and the Directors discussed.
Executive Director Reichmuth added that this will likely be a design-build contract, which reduces the
liability to Cal Am and leaves it with contractor. Also, the extent and type of State and Federal funds
used will determine if prevailing wages are required. Vice President Burnett answered questions from
the Directors

Director Rubio spoke to the prevailing wage requirements and requested the RFQ to include compliance
with Federal and Local requirements regarding prevailing wage. Director Edelen disagreed and
expressed it will drive the cost up to the consumer. He added that considerations for energy efficiency
and LEED certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) should only happen as long as
it does not increase the costs of water. Director Pendergrass questioned hiring a firm before the
California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) makes a decision and supported Director Rubio’s
request. Vice President Burnett clarified if Cal Am utilizes public funding; the project would be required
to employ only prevailing wage workers.
President Della Sala opened the item to public comment. Doug Wilhelm spoke to Director Pendegrass’
comment and encouraged developing a critical path and a schedule, including a safety factor. Nelson
Vega spoke in support of Director Edelen's comment indicating cost is the most important factor and that
most of the people on the peninsula don't earn paid a prevailing wage and the goal should be to have
the best value for the dollar spent. Jim Cullem questioned how much more the construction would cost if
prevailing wages were required and requested that criteria be added to the RFP to include
maintainability and adaptability of the facility, noting that processes might be very efficient, but might not
be easy to maintain. He also requested the firm be required to be able to design to emerging
technologies to make it less costly to operate in the future. With no more requests to speak, President
Della Sala closed public comment and brought the discussion back to the Board to provide
recommendations on the RFQ.
The following recommendations were made:
1. Consider eliminating the requirement for LEED design, but maintain requirements for energy
efficiency to the extent that it delivers real savings to customers.
2. The maintainability and adaptability of the plant over time, that is open to new technologies

4. Report from Cal-Am Regarding Test Well Design, Development and Permitting
Action: Update Provided by Cal Am Water Representative

Cal Am Water Representative Catherine Bowie discussed changes that have occurred since the last
Authority update. She reported that four of the six required permits have been submitted; the State
Lands Commission and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary are outstanding. Construction of
the test wells is on track to begin in November 2013 and the project is on track to meet the current
construction schedule. Ms. Bowie then answered questions from the Authority.
Vice President Burnett added that with respect to the City of Marina application, it has not yet been
approved due to an agreement with the Sierra Club. The permit requires any applicant requesting a
Negative Declaration Environmental Impact Report (EIR) have approval from the Sierra club. Vice
President Burnett has been working with Marina Mayor Delgado with respect to this requirement.
Congressman Farr is assisting with coordinating with the federal agencies for alignment of interest to
expedite the permitting processes.
President Della Sala opened the item to public comment and had no requests to speak.

Vice President Burnett reported on the first meeting of the Governance Committee and indicated the
largest agenda item was discussion of the RFQ. He reported that he was elected as Chair of the
Governance Committee and will be working on agenda management to determine appropriate timing of
decisions. Also discussed was the timeline for the Ground Water Replenishment(GWR) project, and the
Committee agreed to send a letter requesting the CPUC to hold a workshop on the issue in the future.
Director Pendergrass questioned the status of support and progress of the GWR project and indicated
that the MPWSP is impacted because the GWR project will determine the ultimate size of the MPWSP
facility that will need to be built. President Della Sala reminded the Directors and public that this body is
in support of GWR but is working with the timeline to get it online at the same time the desalination
facility. If that is not feasible, the Authority would support a larger desalination facility.
MRWPCA Director and TAC Member Keith Israel have identified the following criteria that will be
needed for the GWR to be successful:
1. Course complete and certify an EIR
2. Water rights are secured for the recycled water project
3. Public support from groups
4. Cost estimate should be less than
5. Time estimate no later than January 2017
6. Permit status is consistent with schedule
7. Receive SRF Funds
8. Complete preliminary design
9. Commitment to purchase water
Director Kampe assumed that GWR would be a preferred substitute for desalinated water, but requested
to see that the confirmation of the cost factors is comparable or less than that of desalinated water. Vice
President Burnett confirmed that cost would be less than $300 per acre foot from the well head and
noted the TAC will take up the item again on March 18, 2013.
President Della Sala opened the item for public comment. Nelson Vega thinks there is overemphasis of
the GWR as it will come as a price and encouraged the Authority to continue to focus on which facility is
the lowest cost and produces the highest volume of water. Catherine Bowie spoke to answer some
questions asked previously about the timeline to hire the design build contractor indicating the decision
to hire the prior to the CPUC decision will assist with the ability to obtain the Coastal Commission permit,
three months earlier. President Della Sala followed up by asking; in the event Cal Am was able to hire a
design build contractor prior to the CPUC decision being released, how much would the ratepayers
would be at risk. Ms. Bowie responded that the only projects the firm would be tasked with is working
toward obtaining permits and does not know if any public funds would be at risk. With no further
requests to speak, President Della Sala closed public comment.
Vice President Burnett also reported on discussions of procurement of alternative power by the
Governance Committee and indicated he will contact the Monterey Regional Waste Management
District to begin discussions of opportunities and will report back.

Executive Director Reichmuth gave a brief overview indicating the report is informational and staff is
seeking direction prior to adoption of the budget for Fiscal year 2013-14. Clerk Milton provided details
about current obligations still pending, the proposed changes for the next fiscal year and requested
feedback from the Authority. The Authority discussed the need for additional public outreach in addition
to televising Authority meetings to include items such as increased web presence, educational materials,
press releases and more.
President Della Sala opened the item for comments from the public. Nelson Vega spoke in support of
increased public outreach and suggested an effective tool to use for outreach would be a comparison to
the user water bill. He encouraged Authority to spend funds to ensure the public is informed prior to the
water rates increasing. Sue McCloud suggested giving a bonus to the contractor for finishing ahead of
time and a penalty for not completing on time. She also proposed an idea of utilizing students from
California Polytechnic Institute and their design team to assist with the design work to save cost. Dale
Heikus requested caution with public outreach as the public is very skeptical. He said the Authority holds
many meetings, produces many reports, and has many discussions, but should begin outreach only
when there is something significant and unmistakable that can prove the project has moved forward.
With no further requests to speak, President Della Sala closed public comment.

Director Edelen requested that public relation efforts be focused on energizing the public to support the
projects and not to publicize the successes of the Authority.
Director Kampe clarified what public funds can be spent on for public outreach, but agrees to the need
for outreach. He indicated the focus should be informing about the best course for best results for the
water users on the Peninsula. As a comprehensive approach, there must be education on all the
projects and elements including, GWR, ASR, backup plans, Contingency plans and the Local Small
Water Projects. He encouraged the program to be diligent, to make information as accurate and
available as possible. In the absence, it undermines what the Authority and other agencies are trying are
trying to do.
Vice President Burnett suggested using their positional influence as mayors, if provided with a
cost effective tool, such as a position statement, presentation or brochure that could be
distributed at meetings, events, or functions. Director Rubio spoke against a focused public
outreach campaign indicating that the Authority’s position is monitoring and advising and
cannot be seen as trying to sway public opinion. Any project should be tasked with the
community outreach and describing their project to the public. President Della Sala requested
that staff propose a public outreach program including the associated costs, at the 20K 40K
level and to allow the Authority to make an informed decision.

7. Review Rebuttal Testimony Submitted To California Public Utilities Commission for Application (A- 12-
04-019) and Provide Direction
Action: Discussed and Recommendations Provided

Vice President Burnett spoke to the item and highlighted the most relevant sections as it pertains to the
Authority adopted Position Statement. He reported that Cal Am is working toward meeting the conditions
and also agreed to add an eighth condition, the consideration of tax principles. Cal Am’s rebuttal
testimony included a large focus on the requirement that Cal Am accept public funding, and Cal Am staff
presented reports from several outside financial and tax experts who pointed out the challenges
associated with public contributions. Chair Burnett provided an update on each of the conditions as set
forth below, and then answered questions from the Directors.

1. The summary on condition one, we are working though, have had some success, recognize the
overall framework, but will take tremendous work to come to an agreement.
2. Adoption of a Governance Agreement: Agreement has been signed and the committee is
operational.
3. Electricity Rates: Addressed in Rich Svinland's testimony. Meetings will be forthcoming with the
Monterey Regional Waste Management District, and the Governance Committee will assist. Cal
Am Water has agreed with the condition in principle.
4. Surcharge 2: General testimony is in support of conditions for utilization that funds can only be
applied to tangible assets that do not leave stranded costs.
5. Subsurface Wells: Point to the CEQA process as the way to justify compliance with the condition.
6. Alternative Intake Strategies: Still in progress. Cal Am understands the need for contingencies,
but is not currently planning on fully developing the contingencies as we stipulated.
7. SRF Financing: No report at this time.
8. Address Sea Level and Coastal Erosion: Issue will be covered in the Environmental Impact
Report (EIR), the main infrastructure will be behind the dunes and safe from those factors.

President Della Sala opened the item for public comment. Dale Heikus expressed caution with
regard to finance and the availability of public funds. He requested the Authority try to identify
ways to lower the project risk before using public funds, including the development of a risk
assessment. Nelson Vega questioned the status of a water purchase agreement and spoke to
Mr. Heikus comment that there will always be risk. With no further requests to speak, President
Della Sala closed public comment.
Executive Director Reichmuth responded to Mr. Heikus’ comment by referring him to review the
testimony of Mr. Linlam, which was included in the Agenda Packet. The testimony lists the
principles for utilization of public funds. He suggested reviewing pages 92, 93, and 94 to help to
explain the financial issues.
Director Kampe spoke to the adopted condition for the development of a contingency plan and
encouraged Cal Am to not lose sight of that. He expressed that the testimony of the hydrologist
Tim Durbin was notable, due to the uncertainty of the productivity of the slant wells but there is
still a need for alternate sourcing.

ADJOURNMENT

With no more business to come before the Authority, President Della Sala Adjourned the
meeting.

of the WMDVBE program goals, as stated in the WMDVBE Utilization Plan, throughout
performance of the contract.
2.2 Utilization of Local Contractors and Suppliers
CAW and the local stakeholders acknowledge the benefit that the local community receives
through utilization of local contractors, laborers, and suppliers.
The Design-Build Entity will be required to prepare and submit a Local Resources Utilization
and Reporting Plan (“Local Resources Utilization Plan”) as part of its response to the RFP. The
Local Resources Utilization Plan is a written commitment to contract with local contractors,
subcontractors, sub-consultants, vendors, suppliers, and labor forces.
CAW will require that the Design-Build Entity monitor and report the continued implementation
of the Local Resources Utilization Plan throughout performance of the contract.
3. Project Overview
3.1 Introduction
CAW submitted an application to the CPUC for the MPWSP in April 2012. As part of this
application, an Environmental Impact Report (“EIR”) will be prepared by the CPUC pursuant to
the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”). The EIR will analyze and assess the
potential environmental impacts of a proposed new water supply project for the Monterey
Peninsula. The water supply is needed to replace existing surface and groundwater supplies.
The MPWSP will produce desalinated water, convey it to the existing CAW distribution system,
and increase the system’s use of storage capacity in the Seaside Groundwater Basin. The
Project consists of several distinct components: a source water intake system consisting of slant
wells; a 9.6 million gallons per day (“MGD”) desalination plant; a brine discharge system;
product water conveyance pipelines and storage facilities; and an aquifer storage and recovery
(“ASR”) system. In addition, the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency (“PCA”) is
pursuing a 3,500 acre foot per year (“AFY”) groundwater replenishment (“GWR”) project that if it
is implemented will reduce the size of CAW’s proposed desalination plant from 9.6 MGD to 6.4
MGD.
The CPUC, as the Lead Agency under CEQA, is actively working on the EIR and expects to
issue a Draft EIR in July 2013, followed by a Final EIR (FEIR) in November 2013. With the
FEIR date approaching, CAW would like to have the Desalination Infrastructure design-build
team in place so as to begin the design and permitting of the Desalination Infrastructure as soon
as possible upon issuance of the FEIR. A final order from the CPUC approving the entire
MPWSP is expected in January or February of 2014.
3.2 Project Background and Objectives
CAW has served the Monterey Peninsula since it acquired properties from California Water &
Telephone Company in 1966. CAW’s Monterey service area is located in the semi-arid central
California coastal area that is entirely dependent on local rainfall for its water supply; imported
water is not an available option. By reason of its geography and rainfall patterns, the area is
prone to severe droughts. Wells located along the Carmel River that draw water from the

Carmel River Aquifer are the primary source of water for CAW. An additional source of water
for CAW is a network of eight wells located in the Seaside Basin, which CAW shares with a
number of users and purveyors. The CAW Monterey service area, also known as the Monterey
District, includes six incorporated cities, the Monterey Airport District, the unincorporated areas
of Carmel Highlands, Carmel Valley, and Pebble Beach, and other unincorporated areas in
Monterey County. The City of Marina, unincorporated Castroville, and other areas of
unincorporated Monterey County lie north of the CAW service area. The proposed water supply
is needed to replace existing supplies that are constrained by recent legal decisions affecting
the Carmel River and Seaside Groundwater Basin water resources: State Water Resources
Control Board (“SWRCB”) Order No. WR 95-10 (“Order 95-10”); and, the Monterey County
Superior Court adjudication of water rights in the Seaside Groundwater Basin. Both rulings
reduce CAW’s use of its two primary sources of supply for the Monterey District and provide the
most immediate impetus for the MPWSP. In addition, in October 2009, the SWRCB issued a
Cease and Desist Order (“CDO”) claiming that CAW had not complied with Order 95-10
requiring CAW to terminate unauthorized diversions from the Carmel River, and that these
diversions constitute a trespass of water. The CDO imposed a deadline of December 31, 2016
for CAW to reduce by approximately 70% its diversion of water from the Carmel River. The
MPWSP is the result of a multi-year planning effort that has considered several different
proposed projects and various related documents. Since 1989, several options have been
proposed that proponents have hoped would meet the water supply needs of the Monterey
Peninsula and address the impacts on the Carmel River underlying Order 95-10, as well as the
Seaside Basin adjudication. The objectives that were considered during development of the
MPWSP projects are as follows:
• Satisfy CAW’s obligations to meet the requirements of Order 95-10;
• Diversify and create a reliable drought-proof water supply;
• Protect the Seaside Groundwater Basin for long-term reliability;
• Protect the local economy from the effects of an uncertain water supply;
• Minimize water rate increases by creating a diversified water supply portfolio;
• Minimize energy requirements and greenhouse gas emissions per unit of water
delivered to the extent possible;
• Provide facilities that can accommodate sea level changes;
• Explore opportunities for regional partnerships; and
• Provide flexibility to incorporate alternative water supply sources, such as GWR.
3.3 Project Description
The Design-Build entity will be asked to provide all necessary permitting, engineering and
construction services to bring the Desalination Infrastructure on-line as close as possible to the
CDO deadline of December 31, 2016. The paragraphs below contain a narrative description of
the nature and composition of the facilities that are included as part of this procurement. Please
note that certain permits that relate to the entire MPWSP, such as the Coastal Development
Permit, will not be the responsibility of the Design-Build Entity, however, certain information from
the Design-Build Entity will be required to assist CAW in obtaining such permit. Refer to Exhibit
E for an illustrative list of permits. The Design-Build Entity will not finance, own, operate or
maintain the Project.
The desalination plant will be required to achieve specified performance standards during
acceptance testing and for a warranty period following acceptance. The warranty period is

expected to be for a period of time in excess of one year. The specific standards that will be
required will be set forth in the RFP. A portion of the technical evaluation points under this RFQ
will be dedicated to the demonstrated ability of the Design-Build Entity’s facilities to meet
required performance standards. Design-Build Entities are informed that the RFP will seek the
best proposals as evaluated over the life cycle of the Project. The evaluation of proposals
submitted pursuant to the RFP will take into account capital costs as well as anticipated
electricity, operation, maintenance, repair and replacement costs.
For detailed information on the project description, estimated costs, and project size please
refer to the Attachments in the Supplemental Testimony of Richard C. Svindland which can be
found under the “Download” area of the project website.
3.3.1 Brine Conveyance Pipeline
The Brine Conveyance Pipeline is needed to convey brine or concentrate from the desalination
plant to the headworks of the PCA’s outfall, where it will mix with effluent from PCA’s Regional
Treatment Plant (“RTP”) and be discharged to the ocean through the existing outfall diffusers.
For this Project, the Design-Build Entity is to assume the pipeline terminates at the fence line of
the desalination plant property.
3.3.2 Salinas Valley Desalinated Water Return Pipeline
The Return Pipeline is needed to convey desalinated water to the Salinas Valley Groundwater
Basin. For this Project, the Design-Build Entity is to assume the pipeline terminates at the fence
line of the desalination plant property.
3.3.3 Desalination Plant
The desalination plant is to be constructed on an approximately 46 acre site of currently vacant
and disturbed land owned by CAW located west of the RTP and adjacent to Charles Benson
Road. For most of the site, ground elevations range from 90 feet to 114 feet above sea level.
Structures and facilities at the site would consist of the following: feedwater receiving tanks; pre-
treatment process; filter backwash supply system; waste washwater storage and settling basin;
desalination process; post-treatment process and chemical systems; brine storage tanks;
desalinated water storage tanks and pumping station; and non-process facilities.
The following sections describe in concept each of these facilities:
Feedwater Receiving Tanks
Feedwater will be pumped from the feedwater intake wells directly to two above-ground
feedwater receiving tanks at the desalination plant site.
Pretreatment Process
Feedwater from the feedwater receiving tanks will be piped directly to pressure or gravity
multimedia sand filters for removal of small particles that could otherwise foul the downstream
cartridge filters and/or reverse osmosis (“RO”) membranes.

DESALINATION INFRASTRUCTURE - REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS

REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS Desalination Infrastructure

Page 6 of 21

Filter Backwash Supply System
The filters will be backwashed periodically (approximately once per day) using process filtrate
as backwash supply.
Waste Backwash Storage/Settling Basin
Waste from the backwashing process will flow from the filters by gravity to a basin.
Desalination Process
RO is a molecular separation process that uses semi-permeable membranes to remove salts in
saltwater and produce desalinated water (which is also called “product water” or “permeate”).
Pretreated seawater is forced at very high pressures through the membranes, and the water
molecules, smaller than almost all impurities, including salts, are selectively able to pass
through the membranes. The remaining impurities and residual water are discharged as
concentrate, which is commonly called “brine”.
Post-Treatment and Chemical Systems
Hardness, alkalinity, and pH of the product water would be adjusted after the RO process to
protect piping and plumbing materials and to make the water more compatible with the other
sources of supply in the CAW system. Facilities will be included at the desalination plant to add
carbon dioxide (to adjust alkalinity), followed by re-hardening (the addition of calcium), and
addition of sodium hydroxide (to adjust pH). Sodium hypochlorite will also be added for
disinfection.
Brine Storage Basin
If there is an interruption of brine discharge, brine would be diverted to a lined open basin on the
desalination plant site. This storage will provide time for the plant to remain in operation for a
short period to allow plant personnel to adjust or cease production and for system personnel to
increase production from other sources (ASR wells, Seaside wells, Begonia Iron Removal
Plant).
Desalinated Water Storage Tanks and Pumping Stations
Following post-treatment, desalinated water would flow by gravity to two on-site storage tanks,
called “clearwells”.
Non-Process Facilities
A building to house visitor reception, offices, restrooms, locker rooms, break rooms, conference
rooms, control room, laboratory, equipment storage and maintenance area, and electrical
service equipment for the adjacent Desalination/Post-Treatment/Chemical Building is required.
Power Supply
Power to the MPWSP intake wells and desalination plant would be supplied by the existing
power grid and no new power plant or other industrial emissions sources would be constructed.

The Governance Committee Agreement, however, contemplates that subsequent to the
CPUC’s issuance of the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, the Governance
Committee may issue decisions concerning procurement of alternative (non-Pacific Gas &
Electric) energy supplies for the Project, including but not limited to waste-to-energy, so long as
such decisions result in lowering the Project’s estimated unit price for power. Thus, in addition
to the planned Pacific Gas & Electric connection, there is the potential for an additional power
supply for the Project.
3.3.4 Desalinated Water Conveyance
CAW Supply
Desalinated water will be pumped by the desalinated water pump station at the desalination
plant into a 36-inch diameter product water pipeline. For this Project, the Design-Build Entity
should assume the pipeline terminates at the fence line of the desalination plant property.

Lead, an Electrical Design Lead, a Design Project Manager, and a Commissioning
Manager, all of which must also be appropriately licensed in California. In addition, the
Design-Build Entity should submit qualifications for other firms and the qualifications
each brings to the team, or any other notable design consultant(s), each appropriately
licensed in California. These or combinations of the above disciplines may be provided
by a single firm or by several firms.
3. Licensure: Submission of evidence demonstrating possession of all required licenses,
registration, and credentials that are required to design and construct the Project in
California.
4. Financial Information: Submission of evidence, including financial statements, that
establishes that the Design-Build Entity has the capacity to perform the work under the
Project and to obtain all required payment and performance bonding as identified in
EXHIBIT B - Questionnaire. To this end, the Design-Build Entity may propose to
supplement its financial strength by proposing a parent or affiliate company Guarantor to
guarantee all of the obligations of the Design-Build Entity under the design-build
contract. A Design-Build Entity will not be pre-qualified pursuant to this RFQ based on
financial information provided by an entity that will not have a contractual relationship
with CAW (either through the design-build contract or through a parent company
Guaranty Agreement). Accordingly, a parent company guaranty will be required if a
Design-Build Entity chooses to submit financial information for pre-qualification from an
entity other than the entity proposed to serve as the Design-Build Entity under the
design-build contract with CAW.
All of the financial information provided in Exhibit B for the Design-Build Entity shall also
be provided for the Guarantor, including a Guarantor Acknowledgment Form as set forth
in Exhibit F signed by a representative of the Guarantor who is authorized to sign such
form and to commit the Guarantor of its obligations contained in the Guarantor
Acknowledgment. A Certificate of Authorization (Attachment 1 to the Guarantor
Acknowledgment) attesting to such authorization must also be submitted. If the
Guarantor is a partnership, the Guarantor Acknowledgment shall be signed by one or
more of the general partners. If the Guarantor is a corporation, an authorized officer
shall sign his or her name and indicate his or her title beneath the full corporate name.
If the Guarantor is a joint venture, an authorized representative of each firm in the joint
venture shall sign a separate Guarantor Acknowledgment. Anyone signing as an agent
must file with it legal evidence of his or her authority to execute such Guarantor
Acknowledgment. If there are multiple Guarantors, each shall be jointly and severally
liable and each shall enter into an independent Guaranty Agreement. If the Guarantor
is a joint venture, each member firm of the joint venture shall independently execute the
Guaranty Agreement.
It is CAW’s preference that the Design-Build Entity or, if applicable, the Guarantor be a
sufficiently capitalized United States entity. If either the Design-Build Entity or the
Guarantor is other than a United States entity, the respondent shall describe any
procedural or substantive limitations on the ability of CAW to enforce the DB Contract or
Guaranty Agreement against the Design-Build Entity or the Guarantor, as applicable.
For purposes hereof, a United States entity is one that is incorporated domestically or
otherwise duly organized under the laws of the United States.

4. FINANCIAL INFORMATION
1. Financial Statements and Supplementary Information
Financial pre-qualification will be established by determining capacity to perform the contract in the
following manner:
a. Working capital is determined from the most recent balance sheet submitted, by subtracting
current liabilities from current assets.
b. Available lines of credit or other credit facilities are then added to the working capital, and the
sum is multiplied by ten.
c. Uncompleted work on contracts, which have been awarded to you (backlog), will be subtracted
from the amount determined in paragraph “b.” above.
d. The number resulting from paragraph “c.” above must be greater than $70,000,000.
Should the Design-Build Entity not qualify on the basis of the above calculation, CAW will consider
any alternative information the Design-Build Entity can provide that, in its sole judgment, assure
CAW the Design-Build Entity has the capacity to perform the Project Agreement. This information
must include the required data described below, and sufficient supplementary analysis and
description as needed to clearly present the Design-Build Entity’s position. This information must be
submitted with the SOQ. It is the Design-Build Entity’s responsibility to make the above-described
calculation and determine if additional information will be required to demonstrate the Design-Build
Entity’s ability to perform the Project Agreement.
2. Information you must submit includes:
a. Full set of financial statements for the Design-Build Entity’s (each member if partnership or joint
venture) most recent three (3) complete fiscal years, accompanied by either an audit or review
report prepared by an independent Certified Public Accountant. Compiled or internally
prepared financial statements will not be accepted. Statements, which are older than six
months, must be supplemented by internally prepared financial statements, which update the
information to no more than six months from the date of submission. Such statements must be
prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, including all required
informative disclosures.
b. Letter from a financial institution in support of available lines of credit or other facilities, if the
Design-Build Entity wishes them to be considered in qualification. See Exhibit 1 (General
Statement of Bank Credit) for example.
c. Schedule indicating contracts, which have been awarded to the Design-Build Entity, and
reconciling the original award, any amendments, completed portion and uncompleted portion of
such contracts. This is the Design-Build Entity’s backlog of work awarded but not yet complete.
d. D&B rating, credit scores, annual reports for publicly traded firms, and a breakdown of what is
owned versus what is leased, in the way of equipment/buildings.

which agreement will be based on the draft Guaranty Agreement issued with the RFP, the
performance of all of the Design-Build Entity’s obligations under the design-build contract to be

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: April 11, 2013
Item No: 6.


№08/12


FROM: Executive Director Reichmuth


SUBJECT: Review 2013 -2014 Budget for Public Outreach and Provide Comments to Staff

RECOMMENDATION:

Provide guidance and direction to staff regarding scope and price of planned public
outreach/public information for Fiscal Year 2013-14 agency budget.


DISCUSSION:

At the most recent Authority meeting, Directors requested staff for a more fully developed public
outreach and information program than what the initial budget draft had intended, primarily
website improvements and televising meetings. Using information from the undersigned
experience and some rather helpful information provided by the Transportation Agency for
Monterey County, a possible program for a significant increase in scope would involve the
following elements:


Consultant Services $45,000


Materials production




Research




Brochure design




Direct mail design


Website Update/Redevelopment $15,000
Polling $40,000
Focus Groups (4) $40,000
On-line Survey and Two Kiosks $25,000
Brochure and Direct Mail Production $150,000
(est 52,000 copies/mailing)


Speakers' Bureau Support $20,000
Translations (Spanish, etc.) $3,000
Conferences and Meetings $10,000

Televising Meetings $14,000



TOTAL $362,000

MPRWA Meeting, 4/11/2013 , Ìtem No. 6., Ìtem Page 1, Packet Page 91



Given that the Authority will likely want a reduced scope, I've asked the Board's Clerk Milton to
revise the draft budget for Fiscal Year 2013-14 to reflect a line item total of $250,000 so as to
enable the Board to evaluate overall budget impacts.
