The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) will hold a public workshop on Cost Estimating for a Needs Analysis for drinking water systems, state small water systems and private domestic wells. The workshop will be the last of the three workshops in the Needs Analysis series to inform on how to appropriate and implement the authorized funding. Subsequent workshops sharing draft results of the analysis results will be scheduled as data becomes available.
State Water Board staff will be conducting this workshop as an opportunity to inform ourselves, and other interested parties, of similar work conducted by drinking water experts to ensure that the authorized funding will be utilized in the most efficient manner possible. The workshop is also an opportunity for interested persons to provide input to the State Water Board. While a quorum of the State Water Board members may be present at the workshop, this will be an informational workshop only, and the State Water Board will take no formal action.
The workshop will be on:
Friday, May 10, 2019
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Byron Sher Auditorium
CalEPA Headquarters, 2nd Floor
1001 I Street, Sacramento, CA 95814
The purpose of the workshop is focused on evaluating methods for determining the intermediate and/or long-term capital costs and operation and maintenance costs in addressing the public water systems, state small water systems and domestic wells that are identified during the Needs Assessment process. The workshop will also evaluate assumptions regarding potential solutions, including options for physical and managerial consolidation as opposed to treatment and/or infrastructure replacement.
