9 Energy Efficient Design Low Cost State Loan Low-Impact Construction Project Schedule

10 Energy Efficient Design Low Cost State Loan Low-Impact Construction Construction designed for minimum impact  Most construction takes place on existing treatment plant sites  Horizontal drilling through environmentally sensitive areas  Pipeline route selected to minimize traffic disruption  Archaelogical and biological monitors onsite during work in sensitive locations

11 Energy Efficient Design Low Cost State Loan Low-Impact Construction Project Cost

12 Energy Efficient Design Low Cost State Loan Low-Impact Construction Project Financing  State Revolving Fund Loan$81,329,083  Revolving Line of Credit$30,000,000 (5 year Bridge loan at 4.34%)  Certificates of Participation$16,000,000 or Revenue Bonds  PG&E Savings by Design $80,000 Grant

13 Energy Efficient Design Low Cost State Loan Low-Impact Construction Greenhouse Gas Emissions Evaluated the greenhouse gas footprint of current treatment facilities and each alternative Selected the process with the lowest greenhouse gas footprint ( lbs CO2 equivalent/year/mgd capacity) New facility represents a 13% reduction in greenhouse gas footprint over existing facility. Evaluated individual equipment based on energy use.
