Document Description
The Water Agency has an agreement with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) for Operation, Maintenance, and Replacement of Solano Project Works. The Putah Diversion Office Complex (PDO) located adjacent to the Putah South Canal headworks, in Solano County near Winters, is the administrative headquarters for Solano Project operations and maintenance staff. The complex currently consists of two houses and a combination office, shop, and storage facility. The complex was constructed approximately 50 years ago and is in need of significant refurbishment for continued safe use. In addition, the current configuration of the site is an inefficient utilization of the overall property. Additionally, the Vacaville Fire Protection District has been searching for a strategic location on public property for a new fire station. They have indicated a serious interest in participating in leasing land at the PDO from USBR. USBR is receptive to the concept of a joint facility and considering the opportunity. The recommended solution to meet these multiple needs now and into the future is to demolish the existing dilapidated complex and replace it with modern structures and amenities with a more open and functional site layout that can accommodate future expansion. The proposed new facility is composed of a fire station, a joint use office building, a small maintenance shop for Solano Project and Water Agency use, and covered parking storage for SCWA equipment.
