SUMMARY

 

Hayward receives its water supply from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) under the terms of a 1962 individual water sales agreement, as well as the 2009 Water Supply Agreement (WSA) between San Francisco and wholesale water customers. There are seven provisions within the WSA identified by the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency (BAWSCA) and SFPUC as requiring amendment. BAWSCA represents the interests of the twenty-six entities that purchase water from SFPUC. On September 25, 2018, the Hayward City Council approved a resolution authorizing BAWSCA to represent Hayward in negotiations with San Francisco on the proposed amendments to the WSA. City staff closely monitored the progress of negotiations. The negotiations are now complete, and the proposed amendments to the WSA were approved by SFPUC on December 11, 2018. Wholesale water customers, including Hayward, have been asked to consider approval of the proposed amendments and the amended and restated WSA by March 2019.

 

Council Sustainability Committee Recommendation

 

The Council Sustainability Committee reviewed the proposed amendments at its January 14, 2019 meeting and unanimously recommended approval.
