Mission Trail Nature Preserve Mountain View Avenue Entrance Project: (Photographic) PROGRESS REPORT WEEK SEVEN

View to the West, Toward Mountain View Avenue Entrance, Mission Trail Nature Preserve

Proceeding Number A.12-04-019 DECISION ON CALIFORNIA-AMERICAN WATER COMPANY’S APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF THE MONTEREY PENINSULA SUPPLY PROJECT SPECIFICALLY IN REGARDS TO PHASE 2

ABSTRACT: Re: Application of California-American Water Company (U210W) for Approval of the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project and Authorization to Recover All Present and Future Costs in Rates, the DECISION ON CALIFORNIA-AMERICAN WATER COMPANY’S APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL OF THE MONTEREY PENINSULA SUPPLY PROJECT SPECIFICALLY IN REGARDS TO PHASE 2 document copy is embedded. Summary Against the backdrop of a 2012 Application and the 2016 Amended Application, this decision addresses Phase 2 issues. In particular, we authorize California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) to enter into a revised Water Purchase Agreement (WPA). The revised WPA provides that the Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency sells purified water from its advanced treated Pure Water Monterey Ground Water Replenishment Project to the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District, which will in turn sell it to Cal-Am for distribution to ratepayers in the Monterey District service area.
This decision also authorizes Cal-Am to build the Monterey pipeline and Monterey pump station, subject to compliance with a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program to address environmental issues. These facilities are necessary for the efficient and optimal use of the Aquifer Storage and Recovery system as well as the Groundwater Replenishment Project, including conveyance of water over a hydraulic gradient. The decision adopts a cost cap of $50.3 million for the combined pipeline and pump station project. Furthermore, the decision authorizes limited financing and ratemaking features, including cost-recovery of used and useful facilities via two advice letters.
This proceeding remains open to resolve Phase 1 issues relative to a certificate of public convenience and necessity for a proposed desalination plant and related facilities.  
IT IS ORDERED that:
1. California-American Water Company is authorized to enter into the Revised Water Purchase Agreement contained in Appendix C.
2. California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) shall participate in each Monterey Regional Water Pollution Control Agency (Agency) and Monterey Peninsula Water Management District (District) rate proceeding involving the Revised Water Purchase Agreement (WPA). Cal-Am shall serve written comments to the Agency and District in that rate proceeding. The written comments shall state any and all concerns of Cal-Am with Agency and District proposals, and provide alternative recommendations. If Cal-Am has no concerns, the written comments shall state it has no concerns. At the time Cal-Am serves its comments on the Agency and District, it shall simultaneously serve a copy of the comments on the Commission’s Director of the Division of Water and Audits.
3. California-American Water Company is authorized to upgrade the existing Hilby Avenue Pump Station and construct and operate the Monterey pipeline that was evaluated in the Environmental Impact Report prepared for the Pure Water Monterey Groundwater Replenishment Project as the “Alternative Monterey Pipeline.”
4. Construction of the pipeline and pump station is conditioned on compliance by California-American Water Company with the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program contained in Appendix E.
5. Within 30 days after completion of the pipeline, and the pump station, California-American Water Company shall notify the Division of Water by letter that those facilities are completed.
6. The authorization to build the pipeline and pump station is subject to a cost cap of $50.3 million for the combined pipeline and pump station project. If actual costs exceed the cap, California-American Water Company is authorized to file a Tier 3 advice letter to seek additional recovery.
7. California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) is authorized to make two separate Tier 2 advice letter filings to place the costs of the pipeline and pump station into rates. Cal-Am shall file the first Tier 2 advice letter by April 30, 2017 to cover costs for the pipeline and pump station through March 30, 2017, reflecting the recovery of actual costs for the used and useful portions of the facilities to date. Cal-Am shall include a showing with its advice letter that the expended costs are reasonable, and a showing that the pipeline and pump station are sized appropriately for purposes of maximizing reasonable use of the Pure Water Monterey Groundwater Replenishment Project and the Aquifer Storage and Recovery Project pursuant to terms of the Water Purchase Agreement, including optimizing transfers within applicant’s system. Cal-Am shall file the second Tier 2 advice letter within 90 days after the pipeline and pump station are completed and fully in service, and shall include a showing with its advice letter that the expended costs are reasonable, and a showing that the pipeline and pump station are sized appropriately for purposes of maximizing reasonable use of the Pure Water Monterey Groundwater Replenishment Project and the Aquifer Storage and Recovery Project pursuant to terms of the Water Purchase Agreement, including optimizing transfers within applicant’s system. Commission staff shall follow the guidance stated in the body of this decision in its processing of each Tier 2 advice letter.
8. California-American Water Company (Cal-Am) shall track in a separate section of the its facilities memorandum account: (a) the costs of the pipeline and pump station (including allowance for funds used during construction); (b) a pro-rated portion of the engineering and environmental costs of the entire Cal-Am facilities; and (c) and any portion of the pipeline or pump station placed in service prior to the Commission approving the costs to be included in plant in service and recovered in base rates.
9. The Rulings of the Administrative Law Judge(s), and the Joint Rulings of the assigned Commissioner and the Administrative Law Judge(s), are affirmed.
10. The Commission hereby adopts this Statement of Overriding Considerations, which is attached to Monterey Peninsula Water Management District Resolution No. 2016-12 and incorporated herein by this reference.
11. Application 12-04-019 remains open to address Phase 1 issues.
This order is effective today.

Proceeding Number A.12-04-019 OPENING COMMENTS OF THE OFFICE OF RATEPAYER ADVOCATES

ABSTRACT: Re: Application of California-American Water Company (U210W) for Approval of the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project and Authorization to Recover All Present and Future Costs in Rates, the OPENING COMMENTS OF THE OFFICE OF RATEPAYER ADVOCATES document copy is embedded. CONCLUSION For the reasons discussed above, the Commission should revise the proposed decision to deny authorization for the expedited construction of the Monterey Pipeline and Pump Station at this time because the record does not support authority for such expedited construction. The record supports waiting to construct the Monterey Pipeline and Pump Station until more certainty exists regarding the design of the desalination plant. Attachment A provides suggested changes to ordering paragraphs that reflect this recommendation.
However, if the Commission does grant authority for construction now, ratepayers should only be responsible for the costs of such infrastructure that is fully used and “used and useful”. Attachment B provides a revision to Ordering Paragraph 7 that clarifies this issue.

ABSTRACT: Re: Application of California-American Water Company (U210W) for Approval of the Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project and Authorization to Recover All Present and Future Costs in Rates, the PUBLIC TRUST ALLIANCE REPLY COMMENT RE PHASE 2 PROPOSED DECISION document copy is embedded. Conclusion/Recommendation PTA suggests that the Commission incorporate language in the decision explicitly recognizing that the approval of the GWR project in Phase 2 of this proceeding does not necessarily imply approval of the associated “small desalination project” and that if Cal-Am incurs expenses in preparation to build a desalination project that is determined by the PUC to be unnecessary, those expenses may be excluded from the rate base.

Carmel Art Association Presents TWO-PERSON SHOW WILDA NORTHROP & JEAN WOODRUFF 'TWO VIEWS OF THE UNEXPLAINED,' TWO-PERSON SHOW CYNDRA BRADFORD & JEFF DANIEL SMITH 'LIGHT.' GALLERY SHOWCASE MARK FARINA AND GALLERY SHOWCASE FRED CARVELL


Mission Statement: 
The Association exists to provide its members with a permanent art gallery, to advance knowledge of, and interest in the arts, and to create a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among artists and the community. 

A Proud Heritage: 
The legendary Carmel Art Association was formed on August 8, 1927 by a small group of artists who gathered at “Gray Gables,” the modest home/studio of Josephine Culbertson and Ida Johnson at the corner of Seventh and Lincoln in Carmel-by-the-Sea. These nineteen “pioneers”—who grew up in the 19th century and individually found their respective paths to Carmel from all corners of the world—each desired a greater sense of community, a spirit of collaboration, and a place to show their work. Before the meeting concluded, they had established an association with a mission “to advance art and cooperation among artists, secure a permanent exhibition space, and promote greater fellowship between artists and the public.” 

W/s Dolores St. between 5th Av. & 6th Av.
10:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M., Daily
