SUMMARY: Plans for the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (District) Phase 1 Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) Project include the construction of a permanent chemical/electrical building at the site near General Jim Moore Boulevard and Eucalyptus Road in the City of Seaside. Staff and its consultants have been working on the final design plans and specifications for the building, and have been in contact with the Seaside Building Department regarding required permit fees for its construction. The required fees include:

 

  • $2,753.96 Seaside Plan Check Fee
  • $3,374.58 Seaside Building Permit Fee
  • $ 647.64 MPUSD School Fee

$6,776.18

 

The Plan Check and School Fees are due upon submittal of the building permit application. The Building Permit Fee is due once the plans are approved by the Seaside Building Department.

 

RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends the Board authorize expenditure of funds up to $8,131, which includes the base permit fees outlined above plus a 20% contingency ($1,355) in the event the final permit fee charge exceeds the estimated amount. Funds for these permit fees are included in the District Fiscal Year 2009-10 budget.

 

BACKGROUND: The District began design work on the Phase 1 ASR Project in 2004. The environmental review for the project was completed via certification of the Environmental Impact Report / Environmental Assessment in August 2006. Construction of the two ASR wells at the site, i.e., ASR-1 and ASR-2, was completed in 2002 and 2008, respectively. Installation of underground utilities was completed in 2009. City of Seaside Board of Architectural Review approval for the permanent chemical/electrical building was approved in July 2009. One of the conditions of that approval is to secure a Building Permit for this structure.
