Document Description
In 2016, the City of Santa Cruz adopted a Negative Declaration for the Water Transfer Pilot Project and entered into an agreement with the Soquel Creek Water District. The Water Transfer Pilot Project was described in the 2016 IS/ND. The Project agreement and 2016 IS/ND contemplated potential future extension of the pilot agreement beyond 2020; however, it was not specific about the terms or conditions of such an extension. The City and the District are now pursuing extension of the agreement for the Project, as the initial term of the agreement ended on December 31, 2020. The term of the agreement would be extended for another five-year term through the wet seasons of water years 2022 (October 1, 2021) through water year 2026(May1, 2026). The only other specific change to the terms of the existing agreement would be to amend the price from the current figure of $1,000 per million gallons to $1,930 per million gallons. No other modifications to the existing agreement are proposed.
