21-313BPU 17.1Water Shortage Contingency Plan AmendmentBPU- ReportREPORT - AMENDED 2020 WATER SHORTAGE CONTINGENCY PLAN BACKGROUND: In conformance with the Urban Water Management Planning Act (Act), the City of Santa Rosa prepared its 2020 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) and its 2020 Water Shortage Contingency Plan (Shortage Plan). Both documents were adopted by City Council on June 8, 2021 and submitted to the State Department of Water Resources on June 30, 2021. State law allows each water supplier to amend its Shortage Plan independent of the UWMP. The City wishes to amend the 2020 Shortage Plan to revise the Excess Use Penalty structure that applies in severe stages of shortage and change the water demand offset requirements that apply to new construction when water is being allocated for existing customers. The Board will be considering a recommendation to Council to adopt the Amended 2020 Water Shortage Contingency Plan. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by Santa Rosa Water that the Board of Public Utilities, by resolution, recommend that the City Council adopt the Amended 2020 Water Shortage Contingency Plan and introduce an ordincontinue  Action details Not available

RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by Santa Rosa Water that the Board of Public Utilities, by resolution, recommend that the City Council adopt the Water Demand Offset (WDO) Policy, the 2021 WDO Fee Study, and the WDO Fees and authorize the WDO Fees to be adjusted on an annual basis to account for inflation at thecontinue  Action details Not available

Billing periods are currently between 28 to 35 days. In order to modify the meter read schedules to transition from billing periods of 28 to 35 days to billing periods of 28 to 32 days, some customers will require a 13th bill in 2021. City Code Section 14-04.140 currently states that the City shall render bills 12 times per calendar year and the City Code sections must be modified to accomplish the modification to the City billing. Affected customers will still have a full billing period of no less than 28 days, but they will receive a bill in the last week of 2021 creating 13 bills for the calendar year. RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended by the Finance Department approvedPass Action details Video Video
