From page A9 | October 09, 2013 |

On Sept. 25, the California Department of Water Resources announced its preliminary Round 2 funding recommendations for Integrated Regional Water Management Plan Implementation Grants funded through Proposition 84. The CABY region (Cosumnes, American, Bear and Yuba River Watershelds) grant includes seven projects totaling $8,572,348 with a total request for state funding of $5,543,032. The Sierra Fund’s application was one of the highest scoring in the state and, if affirmed after public review, will be the second successful grant for the CABY region from Proposition 84. More info can be found at these links: water.ca.gov/irwm/grants and cabyregion.org.

The seven projects included in the application and the total funds requested for each project are as follows:

• Camptonville Water System Improvement Project: $789,341

• City of Placerville Waterline Replacement: $950,000

• El Dorado County Small Hydro Development Program: $380,000

• Water Efficiency, Water Quality, and Supply Reliability in the CABY Region: $997,500

• Wolf Creek Watershed: Restoration, Stormwater Source Control, and Flood Management: $342,499

• CABY Mercury and Sediment Abatement Initiative: $1,498,524

• Meadow Restoration, Assessment and Prioritization in the American, Bear, and Yuba Watersheds: $308,016

The City of Placerville Pardi/Big Cut/Sacramento Street Waterlines Replacement Project consists of replacing and relocating water distribution pipeline sections that are: deteriorated and leaking; undersized for domestic and fire protection needs; and/or poorly located for maintenance due to inaccessibility. The project will replace waterlines located in the Pardi Way, Big Cut Road, Gilmore Street and Sacramento Street area. Approximately 3,700 feet of 8-inch and 12-inch replacement pipeline will be installed to help ensure the reliability of the city’s water supply deliveries and help conserve the water that is being lost through the aging leaky pipeline system dating back to the early 1900s. In addition to reducing water loss, these water infrastructure upgrades will improve public safety by providing minimum flow requirements for fire protection. Through this project the city is improving water supply reliability by improving water system efficiency thus decreasing source water and energy demand and promoting overall headwater sustainability.

The project is planned to be constructed in 2014. Contact the city of Placerville Engineering Division at 530-642-5250 for further information.

The CABY grant has matching funds of $491,000. Funds in the amount of $425,000 from Measure H sale tax revenue have already been set aside for the anticipated match. “We need another $66,000, but we can include in-kind services,” said City Financial Director Dave Warren. “We already spent $115,000 on the design phase of this project with a $90,000 grant from the Water Resource Board and $25,000 from the Water Enterprises Fund, so we can use this for the $66,000 match.”
