Master Plan EIR CAP Presentation - March 27, 2014

  1. 1. Presented by: Ken Weinberg, Director of Water Resources David Chamberlain, Principal Engineer Kelley Gage, Principal Water Resources Specialist San Diego County Water Authority 2013 Master Plan Update, Climate Action Plan and Supplemental Program EIR
  2. 2.  Review Proposed Actions  Subsequent actions needed to authorize recommendations included in the Master Plan  Master Plan Process/Key Conclusions  Climate Action Plan Conclusions  Supplemental Program EIR Conclusions  Staff Recommendation 2 Today’s Agenda
  3. 3.  Certify Final Supplemental Program EIR completed in compliance with CEQA  Adopt Environmental Findings of Fact and Mitigation and Monitoring Reporting Program  Approve the “Proposed Project Modifications” and Climate Action Plan  Approve Final 2013 Master Plan Update  Authorize filing of a Notice of Determination 3 Today’s Proposed Actions
  4. 4.  Continues direction established in 2003 Plan  Complete Emergency Storage Program  Eliminate bottlenecks in untreated water delivery system  Integrate Carlsbad Desalination into regional conveyance  Optimizes existing facilities and minimizes the need for additional investment  Storage  Treatment  Recommendations recognize significant reductions in future water demand due to conservation  Compliance with SBX7-7 20% by 2020  Downsize, defer, or eliminate projects  Approximately $700 M in CIP deferred past 2025 4 Facilities Master Plan is a Road Map to Future Infrastructure Investments
  5. 5. Since January 2013  Water Planning Committee Meetings covering Master Plan and CAP elements  9 Regular Committee Meetings  5 Special Meetings/Workshops  2 Public Meetings (CEQA Scoping & Hearing)  Member Agency Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)  6 Meetings (including reservoir coordination meeting)  3 Workshops since January 2013  Reviewed and commented on detailed modeling and analysis results  Provided input on material presented to Water Planning Committee 5 Stakeholder Involvement - 2013 Master Plan, CAP and EIR Documents
  6. 6. Approved: Supply from the West -Seawater Desalination Types of included projects:  Initial 50 mgd Carlsbad Desalination Project  Addition of Regional Water Treatment Capacity  Addition of 100,000 AF of Carryover Storage  Expansion of Internal System Capacity  Rehabilitation of Existing Facilities Historical Context – Certified 2003 Final PEIR 6
  7. 7.  Master Plan assumes supply mix contained in 2010 UWMP  SBX7-7 Gallons Per Capita Day 20% by 2020 Goals achieved  Continued water use efficiency through 2035 planning horizon  Member agencies develop recycled water and groundwater consistent with their UWMPs  Analyzes effect of additional local supplies beyond 2010 UWMPs  Developed from member agencies current planning efforts  City of San Diego IPR/DPR  Otay Water District Rosarito Seawater Desalination  North County Agencies non-potable and potable reuse  Any change to water resources mix is subject of 2015 UWMP 7 Facilities Master Plan Makes No Recommendations for New Supplies
  8. 8.  No specific action recommended to proceed with Camp Pendleton Desalination or any Water Authority supply project  Recommends adaptive management approach  Continue evaluating feasibility while monitoring progress of local and imported water supply projects  Feasibility-level evaluations are not subject to CEQA review, and therefore not part of today’s actions 8 Facilities Master Plan Makes No Recommendations for New Supplies
  9. 9. 9 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 ....... 2030 + Address Untreated Capacity Constraint Address Potential Supply Shortfall * * 2015 UWMP Determine status of demand, local supply, conservation Award construction contract for P3/P4 Conversion Consider initiating Permitting for initial 50 MGD Camp Pendleton Desal Consider initiating Camp Pendleton Desal Environmental Contract for Phase 1 IPR awarded. 50% of North County Recycling under construction Financing on Rosarito Desal closed.

  10. 10.  Approving the 2013 Master Plan does not authorize specific approval of any project or funding to proceed with design or construction  Funding specific project recommendations will be part of the upcoming mid-term budget adjustment process and/or future fiscal year budgets  Proceeding with any long term recommendation requires Board approval and additional environmental compliance 10 Follow-up Actions/Decisions Related to Recommendations in the Master Plan
  11. 11. 11  No supply/demand gaps under normal weather  Dependent on member agencies achieving conservation and local supply targets  Supply/demand gaps will occur under multi- dry year weather and MWD water shortage allocation  Infrastructure needs influenced by frequency of dry- weather occurrence and magnitude of dry-weather shortfall  Untreated water conveyance utilization threshold exceeded around 2020  New infrastructure needed between 2020–2025  Supply shortage risks increase beyond 2025  Supply shortage risk compounded with lower local supply development and conservation  Assumes Bay-Delta fix for MWD supply reliability  Member Agency supply projects can resolve most long-term supply imbalances Master Plan – Analysis Summary
  12. 12.  Carryover Storage. Mitigates dry-weather supply-demand gaps and further delays new supply development.  Seasonal Storage. Alleviates peak untreated delivery constraints. Use varies between 40 and 50 TAF annually.  ESP Completion. Assures supply reliability throughout the Water Authority service area.  CIP Completion. Assures operational reliability. Project scope reassessed to align with current/projected demand profiles.  Asset Management. Delivery reliability is predicated on continued functionality of all components of the existing aqueduct system.  System Vulnerability. New isolation valves will reduce supply disruptions during shutdowns of the aqueduct system.  Hydroelectric Generation. Development opportunities exist at multiple locations. 12 2013 Master Plan – Other Key Conclusions

  23. 23.  Written comment letters  Four letters from State Agencies  Five letters from Community Groups/Private Organizations  Three letters from individuals  228 form letters from membership of San Diego Chapter of Surfrider Foundation  Public Hearing held January 9, 2014  11 speakers provided oral comments Comments received on Draft SPEIR 23
  24. 24. Comment Response Climate Action Plan does not meet CEQA Guidelines for tiering, scope too narrow, selection of 2035 as forecast year, reduction targets, desalination consideration Master Response 1 – Climate Action Plan Failure to adequately consider higher conservation targets than SBX7-7; failure to adequately consider City’s IPR Master Response 2 – Conservation and Indirect and Direct Potable Reuse Minimize GHG emissions and ‘embedded energy’ in water supply portfolio; develop a preferred “loading order” of water supply options Master Response 3 - Embedded Energy in Water Supply Planning Explain analysis in 2010 UWMP scenarios vs. 2013 Master Plan Update scenarios Master Response 4 – Master Plan and Urban Water Management Plan Scenarios SPEIR analysis not adequate; revise and recirculate Master Response 5 – Suggested Recirculation of the Draft SPEIR 24 Summary of Main Comments and Responses to Draft SPEIR
  25. 25. Comments focused on two main topics: 1. Growth inducement  Addressed in final, certified 2003 Program EIR; Supported conclusion of Supply from the West as preferred alternative  Supplemental PEIR updated the section with most recent growth forecast information, meets all requirements of CEQA and State law guiding integrated planning 2. GHG Emissions  All points are addressed in Master Response 1 – Climate Action Plan Additional letter received on Final SPEIR 25
  26. 26. Required Actions/Permits  Water Authority Board of Directors  Certify SPEIR, approve “Project” under CEQA, adopt Findings of Fact and Mitigation Monitoring & Reporting Plan, and approve Final 2013 Master Plan Update and CAP  No facility construction approvals as outcome of process; therefore no permits required at Program level 26
  27. 27. Staff Recommendation It is recommended the Board adopt a Resolution (attached) that: 1. Certifies the Final Supplemental Program EIR has been completed in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and State CEQA Guidelines, and reflects the independent judgment of the Board; 2. Concurrently adopts the Environmental Findings of Fact and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program; 3. Approves the Proposed Project modifications and the Climate Action Plan (the “Project”); 4. Approves the 2013 Regional Water Facilities Optimization and Master Plan Update; and 5. Authorizes the filing of a Notice of Determination. 27
