MAYOR BURNETT AND COUNCIL MEMBERS
JASON STILWELL, CITY ADMINISTRATOR
2 APRIL 2013
AUTHORIZE THE CITY ADMINISTRATOR TO EXECUTE
AN AGREEMENT WITH THE MONTEREY PENINSULA
WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT FOR THE SALE OF
RECYCLED WATER FOR IRRIGATION OF THE 4TH
A VENUE PATHWAY
Authorize the City Administrator to execute a recycled water agreement with the
Monterey Peninsula Water Management District to irrigate the 4th Avenue Pathway.
In 2009, the City completed the 4th A venue Riverine Habitat Restoration project, which
included a pedestrian path and native riparian landscaping. The Pathway provides a safe
and aesthetically pleasing pedestrian link to the north end of Carmel Beach, other
neighborhood pathways along San Antonio A venue, and into the residential
neighborhoods to the northeast of 4th Avenue. The Pathway is currently hand watered by
City staff with potable water. The proposed agreement would allow the City to use up to
0.5 acre-feet of surplus non-potable recycled water for irrigation of the Pathway.
The Monterey Peninsula Water Management District, the Carmel Area Wastewater
District, the Pebble Beach Community Services District, and the Pebble Beach Company
designed, financed, built and operate the wastewater reclamation project that supplies
recycled water to golf courses and other recreational open space areas of Del Monte
Forest. The City approved an encroachment permit for the pipeline in 1992 that required
the installation of a turn out capable of supplying five acre-feet/year of surplus recycled
water to Rio Park. The City would use up to 0.5 acre-feet of the allocation for the 4th
A venue Pathway as part of the proposed agreement. The City is working with the Pebble
Beach Community Services District on permitting requirements.
Staff recommends that Council authorize the execution of the agreement.
FISCAL IMP ACT
The City will pay the same price per unit of recycled water as the golf courses and other
recreational areas of the Del Monte Forest, which is currently $3,727 per acre-feet
($1,864 for 0.5 acre). In addition, the City will be required to install a water meter,
estimated to cost about $20,000, which is recommended for funding for fiscal year 2013-
14 within the 2013-2018 Capital Improvement Program.
