RESOLUTION NO. R21-05
A RESOLUTION OF THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF GLENDALE, MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA, AUTHORIZING AND DIRECTING THE ENTERING INTO OF AN INTERGOVERNMENTAL AGREEMENT WITH MEMBERS OF THE ARIZONA WATER AND WASTEWATER AGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK FOR MUTUAL AID IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION.
Presented by: Craig Johnson, P.E., Director, Water Services
Purpose and Recommended Action
This is a request for City Council to waive reading beyond the title and adopt a resolution to enter into an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with members of the Arizona Water and Wastewater Agency Response Network (AZWARN) for mutual aid in an emergency situation.
AZWARN is part of a nationwide Water and Wastewater Response Network (WARN) to establish mutual aid networks for the water sector. AZWARN is an organization of water and wastewater utilities that have signed a mutual aid agreement to assist one another during water and wastewater sector emergencies. The pre-signed documents eliminate any legal delay in assistance from one utility to another by having pre-negotiated terms for assistance. The network of utilities stands ready to assist during an emergency declared by the utility, county, state or federal government. There is no cost to join or maintain membership and no penalties for declining a request for service from another water provider.
This agreement provides emergency preparedness for the City’s Water Services department by providing assistance to or from other water sector providers. There is no budgetary impact unless the City provides or receives emergency assistance. The mutual aid agreement allows for set prices and services which may not be readily available in an emergency situation, ensures resiliency and reliability of the City’s water supply.
