Document Description
In December 2016, Congress passed the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WlIN) Act, which authorized the conversion current water service contracts into repayment contracts and the prepayment of associated capital costs of construction. at a discounted rate. The project will benefit the City's ratepayers by eliminating the costs that would otherwise be incurred in renewing the City's Long-Term Water Service Contract, and by allowing the City to take advantage of a discount that the WIIN Act authorized for converting contractors, which will reduce the amount charged to the City for its share of the capital costs of constructing the Central Valley Project. The substantive terms of the Repayment Contract are the same as they were in the existing Water Service Contract because the WIIN Act directed Reclamation to convert the contracts without changing the substantive term .

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Statutory Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15061 (b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
Organizational and financial activities do not constitute a project subject to CEQA review absent evidence the activities will trigger a change in the existing physical environment. Furthermore, where it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment, the activity is not subject to CEQA. (CEQA Guidelines 15061(b)(3)). The proposed execution of the Repayment Contract for water service with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation meets the above criteria and is not subject to CEQA. The proposed action is the conversion of contracts from long-term water service contracts to permanent contracts. No changes in the operations of the project or the delivery of water will be triggered by the proposed action. This is merely a legal and financial transaction that will not cause any physical impact on the environment.
