RECOMMENDATION
title
District Manager requests approval of and authorization for the District Manager to sign a Letter of Agreement (LOA) establishing a reimbursable account with United States Bureau of Reclamation (Bureau) in an amount not to exceed $75,000 for the renewal of Bureau Contract No. 14-06-200-1290R between the Bureau and the Napa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (District) providing for Solano Project Water within the Putah Creek Watershed upstream of Monticello Dam.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
On March 2, 1999 the District and Bureau entered into Bureau Contract No. 14-06-200-1290R/District Contract No. A-38 under which the Bureau agreed to allocate no more than 1,500 acre-feet of Lake Berryessa water to the District and its customers annually for municipal, domestic, and stock-watering uses within the Putah Creek Watershed upstream of Monticello Dam through February 2024.

A condition of the Contract, requires the District to request contract renewal negotiations two years prior to end of the contract term - which the District did on February 25, 2022. Before the Bureau will begin negotiating renewal of the contract with the District, the Bureau requires that all costs incurred by Bureau staff resulting from the renewal process be reimbursed by the District through the establishment of a reimbursable account.

Execution of the LOA will allow the District to make the required initial deposit of $50,000 into the reimbursable account and begin the renewal negotiations in earnest.
