SUMMARY

 

Independent groundwater review and technical expertise are needed to prepare the Groundwater Sustainability Plan (GSP) and to assist with implementation activities, as well as Sustainable Groundwater Management Act compliance. To assist with these activities, the City entered into a PSA with EKI in January 2021 to provide technical services related to sustainable groundwater management. In July 2021, the agreement was amended to provide funds for additional work activities. A second amendment is recommended to allow for additional support for continuing GSP implementation and SGMA compliance. Staff recommends an increase in the agreement amount by $35,000. If approved, the additional will increase the total agreement amount to $95,000 for the period of May 2022 - April 2023.
