AUTHORIZATION TO APPROVE EXPENDITURE OF FUNDS FOR THE PURCHASE OF RAW WATER FROM CENTRAL ARIZONA PROJECT
Presented by: Craig Johnson, P.E., Director, Water Services
Purpose and Recommended Action
This is a request for City Council to approve expenditure authority by the City Manager for the purchase of raw water from Central Arizona Project (CAP) in an amount not to exceed $4,440,000 for Fiscal Year 2019-20.
Background
The Water Services department functions to provide safe and reliable water and wastewater services for City of Glendale residents and businesses. The water production process begins by procuring raw, untreated water to produce safe, clean drinking water for public use. 
 
The City of Glendale’s water supply portfolio includes the surface water from CAP from water received via the Colorado River, and the Salt River Valley Water Users’ Association (SRP) water originating in the Salt and Verde Rivers watershed. Raw, or untreated, water is purchased under Council-approved agreements with CAP and SRP and is treated to produce safe high-quality drinking water. The City will use part of the year’s purchased water to develop long-term water storage credits.
Analysis
The City has entered into long-term inter-governmental agreements to supply raw water for treatment at the Pyramid Peak Water Treatment Plant and distribution to City water retail customers. Rates and fees are determined by the Central Arizona Project Board of Directors.
