PUBLIC COMMENTS

• Tom Rowley thanked the Monterey County representative for attending the Authority
meeting and urged him to attend regularly to represent the County Cal Am rate payers.
• Nelson Vega also thanked Mr. Potter for attending but then spoke to Mr. Della Sala's
efforts as President of the Authority as exemplary and commendable.

AGENDA ITEMS

1. Receive Report from Value Management Strategies, Inc., Discuss, and Provide Direction on the
Draft Preliminary Value Engineering Study of CDM's 30% Design of the California American
Water Company Desalination Project.

Executive Director Cullem introduced Mark Watson from Value Management Strategies,
spokesperson for the Value Engineering study for the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply
Project (MPWSP). He presented a preliminary presentation noting a final presentation would be
made on July 15, 2014 to the Governance Committee. Mr. Cullem spoke to the opportunities
the public had to participate in the process including the TAC Meeting on July 7, 2014 and that
the final report would be released in 30 days.

Mr. Watson presented the preliminary results of the Value Engineering "VE" study of the
desalination plant, invited public comment and discussed next steps for the path forward for the
VE results. He spoke to the purpose of the study to identify a series of value enhancing options
to the current design of the project through an objective, not an independent review. Mr.
Watson further explained that the workshop consisted of a multi-discipline and stakeholder
attendees that helped develop the proposed options. The process included the following

elements; preparation information, functional analysis, speculation, evaluation, development
presentation and post study implementation. He reiterated that VE is not a cost reducing
exercise but an intersection of performance, cost, risk and time, all appropriately weighed that
increase the value of the project. He spoke to the 15 identified priorities and indicated if
implemented, could potentially decrease the total project cost by 9 million dollars and improve
the value of the project by up to 29 percent over the life of the project. Mr. Watson answered
questions from the Boards.

Director Rubio questioned if future expansion options were considered within the analysis,
Director Edelen questioned the environmental impacts and Director Kampe questioned if pre-
treatment and pathogen removal was addressed and asked if the provided bore hole data was
sufficient to determine if we could do a better job at a cheaper cost. Mr. Watson indicated that
the highest risk identified is the raw water data. The report will indicate that there is a lack of
data on the water and assumptions were made according to different speculated results. That is
a key aspect to overall cost to the project.

Vice President Burnett requested clarification of the key drivers for the significant cost savings
to which Mr. Watson explained the largest savings would be related to the recovery rate
process. The current project assumes a 40% recovery in first pass and 90% in the second and
VMS believes that there is a possibility for a higher recovery rate which would impact the RO
membranes positively.

Director Pendergrass questioned if any energy savings were identified to which Mr. Watson
explained there were 33 suggestions as the group was very focused on the life cycle cost
savings and total carbon footprint for the alternatives. He identified that it was assessed as a
risk to obtain power from the Monterey Regional Waste Management District due to
uncertainties.

President Della Sala invited public comment on the presentation.
• Nelson Vega questioned the potential impacts to the cost per acre foot of the project
and supported the larger facility size
• Rick Riedl requested renegotiation with CDM Smith to recoup some of the cost savings
and questioned if there was an incentive to reduce costs within the contract.
• Dale Heikaus requested clarification of the definitions of value comparison.
• George Riley, questioned if the suggestions were implemented, would the quality or
components of the source water change.
• David Lifland questioned the RO schematic expressing concern that the building was
not large enough and questioned if the public would be able to comment on the final
process.
• Michael Warburton questioned how drought regulations would be enforced and spoke to
pending legislation as it relates to this project.

Mr. Watson answered questions posed during public comments.

Rich Svinland, Cal Am noted that many of the options submitted were already discussed and
will be recommended for implementation to CDM. He noted they may not get dollar for dollar
recovery, but will negotiate to get a decreased cost to the ratepayers. He explained that some
systems are not yet fully designed because of the outstanding results of the test wells. The
pipeline design is ready for the VE process, which will be included in the Environmental Impact
Report.

Executive Director Cullem spoke to the additional needed study for this project and expressed
caution that the proposed $9 million in savings may change as modifying one aspect may
impact other factors. He reported the public will be able to comment on the study during the
Governance Committee meeting when the final report is received.

ADJOURNMENT

Having no further business to conduct, the meeting was adjourned at 8:13 PM.

Mike McCullough from MRWPCA presented an update report regarding the Pure Water
Monterey Ground Water Replenishment project. He spoke to current testing results, and
continued coordination with the CPUC EIR team. He reported the Source water negotiations
have been ongoing but referred the Board to Dennis Allion, Chair of the Board on the
MPWPCA, Mayor Rubio and Dave Stoldt for specific details. .

Mr. Allion spoke to ongoing discussions and negotiations regarding source water agreements,
including creative and alternative sources of waters that are should provide adequate water at
affordable rates for the CSIP program. He reported that progress is being made but concerns
continue regarding securing enough water for everyone. He closed by affirming the project is
still on schedule for January 2017 implementation.

President Della Sala invited public comment on the time.
David Lifland expressed concern about data published regarding the withdrawal of water from
the aquifer when it is below sea level. Nelson Vega spoke against the report of progress being
made on the source water agreements and requested the consideration of building the larger
desalination facility. Tom Rowley encouraged keeping focused on the cost to the rate payer.
Director Rubio, as a participant to the negotiations reported that everyone has worked very
hard and he acknowledged Gary Peterson, Dennis Allion, Dave Stodlt and Keith Israel for all
their hard work. The report was received and comment was taken.
3. Receive Preliminary Cost Comparison Between the Ground Water Replenishment Project
and the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Desal Project

Dave Stoldt, General Manager from the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District
provided a presentation regarding a cost analysis of comparing the small, the large desalination
facility with the small and large facility plus GWR. He reported that as revealed during the VE
presentation there are still a number of aspects that will affect the final cost of water and that
the projects are not yet at a point where a cost comparison can be accurately done.
He spoke to the cost assumptions, the current estimates of GWR, including treatment,
conveyance, injection and recovery. Mr. Stoldt agreed to report back in a few months with more
accurate, update information. Mr. Stoldt answered questions from the Directors.
Vice President Burnett, speaking to the upcoming CPUC testimony, questioned how the
Authority can accurately provide testimony regarding endorsement of the project if there is not
enough information to judge cost effectiveness. Mr. Stoldt indicated that by the end of August
the sources water agreements should be completed and the issues of risk protection and
quantity should be worked though to be able to provide sufficient cost information.
President Della Sala invited public comment on the item.
Tom Rowley expressed frustration that the source water is still undetermined for all projects
and that this will impact the decision from the Coastal Commission. Nelson Vega spoke to the
income disparity of Salinas residents versus the peninsula residents and urged the negotiators
to find a cost effective solution for all. Jan Schriner expressed concern regarding the water that
is intended to be used for the test wells. George Riley requested that the Authority re-evaluate
the different projects, now that the schedule has slipped according to the criteria established
from the SPI report. Mr. Warburton encouraged the Authority to being to talk about rational
sharing of publicly owned water.

№06/12
FROM: Authority Clerk Milton

SUBJECT: Adoption of a Resolution to Approving the Revised Member Allocation (%)
Distributions to Include the County of Monterey and Downward Revisions
to the Annual Member Contributions for Fiscal Year 2014-15


RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Authority adopt the attached resolution revising the member
contribution percentages to include the County of Monterey and revise the Fiscal Year
2014-15 contributions.

DISCUSSION:

When the Authority was initially formed, member contributions were based upon the
percentage of cal am rate payers affected by the Cease and Desist delineated by
member agency. The County of Monterey has never formally been seated as a
member, therefore the member contribution percentages do not include their 34% of the
rate payers. However, through the participation of the County of Monterey as a member
of the Governance Committee and the fact that the Authority has continued to work to
provide a water supply for all rate payers, the Authority has requested that the County of
Monterey contribute their 34% fair share annual member contribution.
The Authority has submitted requests for membership funding for Fiscal years, 2012-13,
2013-14 and 2014-15. The County of Monterey has paid for fair share contribution for
Fiscal Year 2012-2013 and a fair-share contribution request for the Fiscal Year 2013-
2014 and for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 have been made. Staff attended the Budget
Committee meeting on June 10, 2014 to answer questions about the current and next
fiscal year fair-share contribution requests and subsequently the contribution for Fiscal
year 2014-15 has been included within the County of Monterey budget and staff is
confident that it can be incorporated into our budgeted membership fees for FY 14-15.
Therefore, Staff is recommending that the Authority adopt the attached resolution
approving the revised member contribution percentages based on the inclusion of
Monterey County, representing 34% of Cal Am rate payers, including revised member
contribution percentages for FY 2014-15. The resolution adjusts the other members
accordingly splitting the budget according to those percentages.

Item No: 4.




FROM: Authority Clerk Milton

SUBJECT: Approval of Checks from May to July 2014 and Adoption of a Resolution
Approving the Final Budget Reconciliation for Fiscal Year 2013-14
RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended that the Authority approve and file the accounts payable payments
made during the period of June 12, 2014 through August 14, 2014 with total payments
for the above referenced period of $17,835.82. It is also recommended that the
Authority adopt a resolution amending the Fiscal Year 2013-14 Budget to reflect actual
expenditures and authorizing the remaining unspent funds to remain in fund balance for
use during Fiscal year 2014-15.
DISCUSSION:
Approval of Checks:
At its meeting on September 12, 2013, the Authority Board approved a staff
recommendation to provide the Directors a listing of general checks issued since the last
report so that it can inspect and confirm these checks. Each invoiced expense has been
reviewed and approved by the Executive Director and Finance personnel prior to payment
to insure that it conforms to the approved budget.
The following checks are hereby submitted to the Authority for inspection and
confirmation.
• $ 412.50 to Access Monterey Peninsula for Video Production Services
• $ 1,558.33 to Environmental Relations for Public Outreach Services
• $ 5,497.75 to Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber and Schreck for Special Legal Counsel
• $ 5,000.00 to Perry and Freeman for Legal Services/Attorney of Record
• $5,367.24 to City of Monterey for Reimbursement of Executive Director Services.

The bank balance as of August 14
th
, 2014 is sufficient cover the above checks and the
remaining fiscal years encumbrances therefore, staff is recommending approval of the
above checks.


MPRWA Meeting, 8/14/2014 , Ìtem No. 4., Ìtem Page 1, Packet Page 13


Fiscal Year 2013-14 Revenues:
Revenues for the final balance of the Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget appear to be off for a
few minor reasons. Due to the approval of a reimbursable contract for Value
Engineering services of up to $200,000 the budget reflects the amount as income and
expense, but the funds were not received nor were any expenses incurred prior to the
end of the fiscal year. As previously authorized, the income and expenses will be
carried over into the Fiscal year 2014-15 Budget. Also, the reimbursement from the
County of Monterey for a portion of the SPI contract is still outstanding to which the
Executive Director attended and presented to the Monterey County Budget Committee
explaining the request for funds. The County of Monterey has requested copies of the
invoice on several occasions but the payment has not materialized. It is anticipated that
the funds will be received during the FY 14-15.

Expenses:
Staff and the Board remained fiscally conservative throughout the year and ended with
residual balances in all of the expenditure categories. Savings were realized in multiple
categories due to the reduction in the number of meetings for both the Directors as well
as the TAC. Staff is requesting that any remaining funding be left in fund balance for
use as necessary during the next fiscal year and may work to offset future member
funding requests. A detailed report of the financial accounting will be available once the
Financial Audit is completed by October 2014.

Staff is recommending that the Authority approve and file the above checks and adopt
the attached resolution amending the Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget authorizing the
remaining unspent funds to remain in fund balance for use during Fiscal year 2014-15.

ATTACHMENTS:
• Budget to Actual Report through June 30, 2014
• Resolution amending the Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget and authorizing unspent
funds to stay in Fund Balance.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 5.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and provide direction with regards to expected
changes to the California Public Utilities Commission(CPUC) schedule for
the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project (MPWSP).


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the Water Authority Board receive a report on expected changes
in the CPUC schedule resulting from delays in the completion of the draft EIR (DEIR),
determine if any action is required at this time, and provide direction to staff.


DISCUSSION:

The latest CPUC schedule as revised July 3, 2014 is attached. That schedule indicated
that a number of legal filings and DEIR comments were to be completed between the
DEIR circulation in 3rd quarter 2014 (not later than Sept 30) and the Administrative Law
Judge (ALJ) hearings in December 2014.

However, on August 8, we received a telephonic notification from the CPUC consultant
preparing the EIR that the DEIR has been delayed several months and the ALJ hearing
in December is likely to be delayed as well, possibly as long a 3 months.

As of August 11, we have not received official notice of a hearing delay. None-the-less,
staff recommends the Authority Board accept the likelihood of a delay, consider its
implications, and provide staff direction accordingly.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 6.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and provide direction with regards to the current
status of the source water negotiations for the Monterey Regional Water
Pollution Control Agency (MRWPCA) Ground Water Replenishment
(GWR) Project.


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the Water Authority Board receive a report on the current status
of negotiations on source water for the MRWPCA Pure Water Monterey (PWM) /
Ground Water Replenishment (GWR )project, determine if any action is required at this
time, and provide direction to staff.


DISCUSSION:

The latest GWR schedule as revised June 12, 2014 by the Monterey Regional Water
Pollution Control Agency (MRWPCA) is attached. A MOU for GWR source water was to
have been completed by June 30, 2014. On July 10th, the Water Authority Board
extended the deadline to July 31 to allow more time for negotiations between the
MRWPCA and Salinas Valley agricultural representatives. Unfortunately, as of August
8th, an MOU on source water has not been reached.

As shown on the attached schedule, the completion date of the draft water purchase
agreement (WPA) is critical, and is dependent on the MOU. The Monterey Peninsula
Water Management District (MPWMD) will need enough time to complete follow-on
studies required by the settlement agreements prior to the CPUC hearings that had
been scheduled for December 2014.

Although the deadline for the draft WPA is currently August 2014, as discussed in an
earlier agenda item the CPUC hearing scheduled for December 2014 is likely to be
delayed as a result of problems by the CPUC consultant in completing the EIR.

Dave Stoldt, General Manager of the MPWMD, will present the latest information on
that subject at today's meeting. Depending on information provided, some of the options
available to the Water Authority include:

1. Determine that GWR will not be available in time for inclusion in the Peninsula
supply portfolio and decide in favor of the 9.6 mgd desal facility.
MPRWA Meeting, 8/14/2014 , Ìtem No. 6., Ìtem Page 1, Packet Page 25



2. Agendize a decision on removal or retention of GWR for the September 11
meeting, or at a special meeting to be announced.
3. Authorize an extension of the deadlines for the GWR MOU and WPA on the
assumption that the December 2014 CPUC hearing will be delayed.
4. Request the source water issue go to arbitration immediately as is permitted by
current agreements.
5. Take no action.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 7.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and vote on staff proposal to add the General
Manager, or District Engineer, of the Marina Coast Water District
(MCWD) as a member of the Authority Technical Advisory Committee
(TAC) and to add a MCWD hydrologist to the Monterey Peninsula Water
Supply Project (MPWSP) Hydrogeologic Working Group.


RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Water Authority invite Marina Coast Water District (MCWD)
participation on the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and on the test slant well
Hydrogeologic Working Group (HWG).

DISCUSSION:

During January and July 2014, the City of Marina has been heavily involved in the
permitting of the bore hole construction and in consideration of a mitigated negative
declaration (MND) and coastal development permit (DP) for Cal Am's test slant well at
the CEMEX site.

During public hearings, the Marina Coast Water District (MCWD) raised a number of
concerns that suggest a lack of communication between MCWD and Cal Am, and with
the Water Authority as well. This situation has not only delayed progress on the desal
plant approval and construction, but has raised serious concerns on the part of the
MCWD and City of Marina that its water needs may be placed at risk as a result of the
desal plant slant wells.

To initiate a dialog on these issues, several informal MCWD/MPRWA management
level meetings were held during the week of August 4. Amongst other things, it was
concluded that participation by MCWD representatives in the TAC and in the HWG
would provide early MCWD input on technical issues related to the Desal facility and the
slant wells, facilitate MCWD environmental review of the MPWSP EIR, insure the
concerns of Marina residents get timely consideration, and improve communication
between and amongst MCWD, Cal Am, and the Water Authority.

It should be noted that the TAC already has a member from the agricultural community
to articulate ag interests prior to Water Authority decisions and deliberations. Thus, the
Executive Director recommends the Authority extend an invitation to the MCWD District
Engineer (Interim General Manager) to join the TAC for the same purpose.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 8.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and provide direction on the Value Engineering
(VE) Final Report for the Cal Am Desal facility, authorize forwarding of the
VE report to the Governance Committee for its action, and
authorize payment to the consultant (VMS) from funding provided by Cal
Am, not to-exceed the contract price of $109,035.70


RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended that the Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority receive a
report on the Final Value Engineering ( VE) Study of the Monterey Peninsula Water
Supply Project (MPWSP), make recommendations, forward the report to the
Governance Committee for its action, and authorize contract closure and payment to
the consultant (VMS).

DISCUSSION:
The draft preliminary Value Engineering (VE) Study for 30% design of the desal facility
was briefed to a joint meeting of the Governance Committee and the MPRWA at a
special meeting on July 10 and to the TAC on Aug 4. The Final report is now complete
and the full text is available on the Water Authority web site http://www.mprwa.org/wp-
content/uploads/2012/03/MPWSP-Final-VE-Report.pdf and on the Cal Am MPWSP
project web site www.watersupplyproject.org .
It should be noted that the VE study focuses on value improvements, in particular
potential cost savings. Requirements mandated by the settlement agreements, as well
as directions from the Governance Committee on environmental and aesthetic issues,
should still be incorporated into the design.
Following review and comment by the MPRWA, the Final Report will be forwarded to
the Governance Committee for action in accordance with the Governance Agreement.
BUDGET CONSIDERATIONS:
The Water Authority awarded the VE contract on behalf of the Governance Committee
to VMS on June 12, 2014 at a price not-to-exceed $109,35.70. It also approved a
contingency of not-to-exceed $11,000.00. The contract was fully paid for by Cal Am.
The contract work is now complete and it has not been necessary to utilize the
MPRWA Meeting, 8/14/2014 , Ìtem No. 8., Ìtem Page 1, Packet Page 37



contingency funds. Thus, the contractor can be paid and the contract closed. Any
unused funds remaining in the deposit account will be returned to Cal Am.

Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project – Desalination Plant  Executive Summary  
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY  FINAL REPORT
A Value Engineering (VE) study, sponsored by the Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority and 
facilitated by Value Management Strategies, Inc., was conducted for the Desalination Plant portion of 
the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project.  The study was conducted at the offices of California 
American Water in Monterey, California July 7 through 11, 2014.  This Executive Summary provides an 
overview of the subject project, summary results of the VE team’s analysis, and the alternatives 
developed by the VE team.   
PROJECT SUMMARY 
Led by California American Water Company (CAW), the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project 
(MPWSP) is a complex, multi‐component program that is necessary to replace a large percentage of 
the local drinking water supply that currently originates from the Carmel River. State Water 
Resources Control Board (SWRCB) Order 95‐10 requires CAW to reduce diversions from the Carmel 
River by approximately 70% no later than December 31, 2016.  
In order to meet the cutback requirements and provide adequate water to the Monterey Peninsula 
communities, CAW plans include three projects to address this regional water crisis: 
 Desalination of seawater from wells drawing water from Monterey Bay
 Groundwater Replenishment (GWR) with advanced treatment of wastewater by the Monterey
Regional Water Pollution Control Authority Plant
 Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR)
This VE study focused solely on the desalination plant portion of the water supply project. 
Treatment at the desalination plant will consist of oxidation with sodium hypochlorite, granular 
media filtration, dechlorination, pH adjustment with sulfuric acid, cartridge filtration, a first pass of 
seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO), a partial second pass of brackish water reverse osmosis (BWRO), 
disinfection with ultraviolet light, post‐stabilization treatment with carbon dioxide and hydrated lime, 
pH adjustment with sodium hydroxide, addition of an orthophosphate corrosion inhibitor and post‐
chlorination with sodium hypochlorite. 
CDM Smith was selected as the consultant for the desalination plant design‐build project. Their work 
will include the design, construction and commissioning of the proposed seawater desalination plant. 
The planned facilities include the treatment plant, treated water storage and pumping, and 
concentrate storage and disposal facilities. 
Construction costs for all elements of the desalination plant are currently estimated at $74,029,943. 
PROJECT PURPOSE AND NEED 
The primary purpose of the overall MPWSP is to replace existing water supplies that have been 
constrained by legal decisions affecting the Carmel River and Seaside Groundwater Basin water

resources. The purpose of the desalination plant portion of the MPWSP is to treat the water supplied 
by the seawater intake wells sufficient to meet the applicable water quality standards. 
VE STUDY BASIS 
The VE study was based on the 30% Design Submittal documents prepared by the project’s design‐
build contractor, CDM Smith, dated June, 2014. 
VE STUDY OBJECTIVES 
The VE team was tasked with exploring ideas to improve project value by: 
 Reducing project cost without sacrificing functionality
 Identifying opportunities to improve the desalination plant’s operations and reliability
 Identifying recommendations for reducing long‐term operational costs
 Improving the overall maintainability of the facility
EVALUATION OF BASELINE CONCEPT 
The first day of the VE study included meetings with CDM Smith and 
other project stakeholder representatives. During the VE team’s analysis 
of the baseline concept, a number of analytical tools and techniques 
were used to develop a thorough understanding of the functional 
requirements of the project and how well the baseline concept was 
performing the functions.  A major component of this analysis was the 
use of Value Metrics, which seeks to assess the elements of cost, 
performance, time, and risk as they relate to project value.  These 
elements required a deeper level of analysis, the results of which are 
detailed in the Project Analysis section of this report.  The key 
performance attributes identified for the project are listed in the table 
on the right, “Performance Attributes.”  
Below is a summary of the major observations and conclusions identified during the VE team’s initial 
analysis of the baseline concept which led the VE team to identify the alternatives resulting from this 
study and presented herein.  
 Buildings are located on the area of the site most prone to settlement during a seismic event.
The project is assuming deep dynamic soil compaction to address collapsible soils.
 UV treatment appears to be included to address temporary uncertainty regarding treatment
process and concerns with obtaining sufficient log removal for pathogen removal.
 The current design includes direct feed from intakes to pressure filters which could result in
sand and deposits clogging the system.
 The baseline concept assumes a portion of the intake water must be returned after treatment
to agriculture properties.

Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project – Desalination Plant  Executive Summary  
 The project will use granular pressure filters for pre‐treatment of seawater prior to the RO
membranes to remove iron and manganese.
 The current design is providing storage tanks for filtered water in order to maintain constant
pump head through the RO process.
 The project assumes a brine disposal basin will be necessary when wastewater treatment
plant (WWTP) discharge outfall is not available.
 The desalination plant may have an issue removing large equipment for maintenance relative
to access and equipment transport.
 The current design shows pumps in chemical storage sumps.  It is not fully understood where
the pumps discharge.
 The project is currently planning for rigorous acceptance test procedures and requirements.
 The installation of pre‐engineered metal buildings will require treatment to prevent corrosion
and will require maintenance over the life of the facility.
 The current process design is recapturing 45% of the first pass treatment water and 90% of
the second pass treatment water (average of 43% total recovery for the plant).
Additionally, sustainability evaluations were conducted to assess the baseline concept against the 
sustainability requirements of both the U.S. Green Building Council (LEED) and the Institute for 
Sustainable Infrastructure (Envision). The resulting sustainability assessment is included in the Project 
Analysis section of this report. 
RISK ANALYSIS 
A qualitative risk analysis was performed in conjunction with the VE study to identify risks related to 
project cost, time (schedule), and ability to perform its required functions.  The VE team also 
discussed and identified possible risk mitigation strategies in an effort to reduce the overall risk 
profile of the project.  Risk Registers were developed for the project and are provided in the Project 
Analysis section of this report.  These Risk Registers provide all of the information for each risk 
including descriptions, probabilities, impacts and potential risk response strategies.  
The following are the key lessons learned identified as a result of the risk analysis exercise: 
 There is currently no raw water quality data available.  Water quality may impact the
assumptions relative to the plant’s treatment processes and capacities.
 Plant capacity requirements are dependent on the implementation and success of the
groundwater replenishment project which is currently being developed.
 Approval of the environmental documents and regulatory permits may require revisions to
the project design.

Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project – Desalination Plant  Executive Summary  
A majority of the risks identified are being actively monitored and managed by the project design 
team and project management teams.  Key risk mitigation strategies identified by the VE team 
included membrane pretreatment to mitigate the risk associated with unknown source water quality, 
and revising the construction schedule to allow the respective features time to be revised when 
information becomes available.   
VE STUDY RESULTS 
The VE team identified 33 VE Alternatives and 13 Design Comments to support overall project value.  
The VE Alternatives are organized by the primary topic or project aspect to which they refer: 
 Building Design and Site Alternatives
 Water Treatment Equipment and Equipment Layout Alternatives
 Maintainability Alternatives
 Risk Mitigation and Schedule Alternatives
 Treatment Process Alternatives
Of these alternatives, 16 were selected and recommended by the VE team as a cumulatively‐
implementable alternative strategy focused on enhancing overall value potential for the project.  The 
alternatives have been summarized in the following section of this report.  The total net potential 
cost savings of the VE Strategy is approximately $9 million in initial cost savings and $23 million in life‐
cycle cost savings.  It should be noted that a number of these alternatives would increase the initial 
project costs; however, they in turn provide benefits to project performance or in the reduction of 
maintenance and energy usage.  
To evaluate the performance of the VE Strategy, the VE team considered the combined effect of all 
VE alternatives.  The total performance scores reflect the performance rating for each attribute 
multiplied by its overall priority (weight) expressed using a ratio scale.  The following chart compares 
the total performance scores for the baseline concept and the “Enhanced Value” VE Strategy.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 9.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and provide direction on the power purchase
agreement between Cal Am and the Monterey Regional Waste
Management District (MRWMD).


RECOMMENDATION:

It is recommended that the Water Authority Board receive a report on the status of
negotiations between Cal Am and the Monterey Regional Waste Management District
(MRWMD) for renewable electrical power for the Desalination (Desal) facility.


DISCUSSION:

With support from the Water Authority, Cal Am and the staff of the MRWMD have
diligently worked on a term sheet and power purchase agreement to allow Cal Am to
acquire between 3.5 and 4.5 megawatts of renewable electrical power for the Desal
facility from the landfill. An electrical power study, funded by Cal Am, determined how
best to provide power "over the fence" and what equipment would be required.

The power purchase agreement that the MRWMD currently has with PG&E expires his
fall, and the District needs to obtain new customers for that power now. Unfortunately,
the current schedule for a CPCN decision by the CPUC prevents Cal Am from entering
into a purchase agreement at this time.

However, an agreement was reached by which MRWMD will seek short-term (3-5 year)
customers for its power allowing Cal Am to be considered as a longer term customer in
the 2017-2019 time frame. That will provide sufficient time for the Desal permitting
process to be completed, the CPCN issued, and for construction to advance far enough
along for Cal Am to be able to enter into a power purchase agreement and actually
utilize the renewable power. The attached staff report to the MRWMD board seeking
approval to advertise for power sales provides a good summary of the situation.

Issuance of a Request for Proposals for the Sale of Renewable Power
RECOMMENDATION: That the Board authorize issuance of a Request for Proposals for the sale of 8.2
megawatts of Renewable Power generated from the Landfill Gas to Energy Facility.
BACKGROUND
The District presently produces bundled renewable electricity and renewable energy credits (RECs) from the 5-
megawatt (MW) Landfill Gas (LFG) Power Plant located on site in Marina, CA. The current Power Sales
Agreement (PSA) for this is set to expire on February 28, 2015. In a parallel effort, the District is the process
of obtaining a new interconnection agreement with local utility PG&E for the ability to produce an additional up
to 3.2 MWs of LFG power in subsequent years. This would bring the District's total LFG power production up
to 8.2 MWs in future years. In order to finalize this new interconnection agreement, the District must make a
decision regarding anticipated power sale strategy for this new generation by September 2014.
DISCUSSION
District consultant Brennen Jensen has been working with staff to explore options for sale of the District's
renewable power produced from LFG, to include the existing 5 MWs (minus what the District uses on-site) plus
an additional 3.2 MW of new power to be produced from LFG. The District's current PSA (for 5 MWs) expires
early in 2015. The additional 3.2 MWs is anticipated to be phased in over time in two subsequent phases, based
on actual availability of LFG following the full installation of the permanent flare already underway. The first
phase anticipates the installation of 1.6 MWs within 18-24 months. The second phase anticipates an additional
1.6 MW within five years. At this time, the District is exploring options for a multi-year agreement for the sale
of this power, associated Renewable Energy Credits (RECs), and associated green attributes as summarized
below:
1. Marina LFG Facility (Up to 5 MWs, available beginning March 1, 2015)
o Bundled Renewable Electricity and Renewable Energy Credits (Bucket 1)
o Associated Green Attributes
2. Marina LFG Facility (Additional up to 3.2 MWs; installed in two phases, planned availability beginning in
2016)
o Bundled Renewable Electricity and Renewable Energy Credits (Bucket 1)
o Associated Green Attributes

Issuance of RFP for Sale of LFG Renewable Energy
July 11, 2014
Page 2
One of the options for selling the District's power in the future, is to sell 5 MWs (more or less) "over the
fence" to the proposed CalAm Desalination Plant. On June 23', staff met with CalAm representative Ian
Crooks, and with Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority Executive Director Jim Cullem to allow each
to provide a status update. CalAm has continued interest to purchase the District's renewable power. Mr.
Crooks reported that their draft EIR will be released in August 2014, and final EIR approval is anticipated for
February 2015. CalAm would consider discussing a PPA in November or so of 2014 and could possibly
finalize a PPA by March 2015, if there are no delays in the EIR approval process. CalAm would not be
prepared to accept power from the District for at least three to five years, or more. This timing does not
integrate well with the District's need to respond to ongoing PG&E requirements to add additional generating
capacity and to replace the soon to expire PPA. The CalAm representative has indicated that CalAm is
supportive of this approach by the District and they plan to attend the Board meeting to voice that support.
Issuance of a RFP for the sale of 8.2 MWs of renewable power generated from the LFG to Energy Facility will
help to ascertain what opportunities are currently present within the marketplace for the existing and anticipated
LFG to energy power production, following the expiration of the current PSA.
FINANCIAL IMPACT
There is no financial impact to this request. Following the completion of the RFP process, staff will
recommend actions based on the responses provided. The RFP does not commit the District to entering into
any agreement with any responding party.
STRATEGIC PLAN
This item is in line with the Renewable Energy Production Policy within the strategic plan.
CONCLUSION
It is recommended that the Board authorize the issuance of a RFP for the sale of 8.2 MWs of renewable power
generated from the LFG to Energy Facility. Proposals will be due on August 15, 2014 and a staff report and
recommendation is anticipated for the August or September Board meeting.

Monterey Peninsula Regional Water Authority
Agenda Report

Date: August 14, 2014
Item No: 10.



№06/12
FROM: Executive Director Cullem

SUBJECT: Receive report, discuss, and provide direction on the City of Marina test
slant well Coastal Development Permit (CDP) and the current schedule for
Coastal Commission CDP.


RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends that the Water Authority receive an update from Cal Am on the
Marina Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Test Slant Well and discuss the
approval process and schedule to be followed in obtaining a City of Marina CDP and a
Coastal Commission CDP. The Authority should also receive an update on the National
Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Monterey Bay National Marine
Sanctuary (MBNMS) Environmental Assessment (EA).


DISCUSSION:

The City of Marina Planning Commission considered the MND and Marina CDP at its
meeting of July 10, 2014 but was unable to come to a decision. Accordingly, Cal Am
appealed the failure to act to the Marina City Council. The Council is scheduled to hear
the appeal at a special meeting on August 26.

In parallel with the Marina processing, Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary
(MBNMS) has circulated its draft federal Environmental Assessment (EA). The
Executive Director commented to the MBNMS in favor of the EA on behalf of the Water
Authority.

To keep the schedule on track and to conduct as much work as possible concurrently,
Cal Am brought the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the test slant well construction to
the Governance Committee on July 16, 2014.

The current Marina schedule for approval and construction of the test well and for the
hearing at the Coastal Commission is at Exhibit A.

Cal Am has been requested to brief the Water Authority on the status of the schedule.


EXHIBITS:

A- Cal Am schedule for approval and construction of the test slant well
