County of Fresno Shaver Lake Water and Sewer Presentation 2012
Order of Presentation Water Sewer Community Facilities District Water/Sewer Operations & Maintenance
Shaver Lake Sewer and Water Master Plan Shaver Lake Sewer and Water Master Plan (SWMP) was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on June 24, 1985 Established a 2,000 equivalent dwelling unit (EDU) limitation on groundwater in Township 10 Obtaining a Surface Water Allocation is necessary to allow development above the 2,000 unit limitation
Watershed Study Kenneth D. Schmidt, March 1977 Sustainable Volume 300 Acre Feet – SWMP/Actual/State recommendation – 0.177/0.30/0.50 gpm is equal to 1,695/1,000/600 EDUs Maximum Volume 500 Acre Feet – SWMP/Actual/State recommendation – 0.177/0.30/0.50 gpm is equal to 2,825/1,667/1,000 EDUs
Shaver Lake Township 10 Water Unit Allocation EDUs Limit based on SWMP2,000 Recorded Lots -1,579 Tentatively Approved (TPM, SPR, TTM) -384 Balance 37 Tentatively approved w/spec conditions 83 Applications in Process 156* *If approved Tract 5990 & 5991 will request a transfer from your Board of 119 EDUs from previously approved development with no net impact to chart above.
Shaver Lake Water Criteria Initially developments were approved based on the SWMP source capacity requirement of 0.17 gallons per minute –per EDU In early 2000 the County recognized the 0.17 was insufficient to meet demand and adjusted the requirement based on actual data being collected that reflected 0.30 gallons per minute - per EDU. The State Department of Public Health issued the District’s revised water permit on September 2010 which recommends to increase the requirement to 0.5 GPM per EDU for future development
Shaver Lake Township 10 Projected Water Demands Of the 2,000 unit limitation 251 units are located in the Sierra Cedars Community Service District (an independent special district) The balance of the remaining 1,749 units reside within the system operated by Waterworks District 41 or County Service Area 31
Shaver Lake Township 10 Projected Water Demands At full development of the 1,749 units there will be an estimated deficit of 49 gallons per minute during peak hours under normal operating conditions and average precipitation years There are two existing County owned wells that may be modified to produce an estimated additional 45 – 75 gallons per minute. During multiple drought years the estimated deficit at full development of the 1,749 units may reach up to 114 gallons per minute during peak hours under normal operating conditions
Shaver Lake Development in Township 10 Average new connections from 2004 to 2011 were 14 per year. May take up to 6 decades for all remaining lots to connect During 2005 – 2006 there was a peak in connections at 101. Based on the peak year, it may take up to a decade for all remaining lots to connect
Sewer Treatment and Disposal In 2009 the Department conducted an evaluation of the treatment and disposal capacity. The study indicated a deficit based on theoretical demand in capacity of 12,125 GPD (summer) and annual avg. deficit of 79,125 GPD for the 1,425 connected EDUs. However, the District has not experienced any overcapacity issues due to lower actual demands than theoretical demands.
Sewer Treatment & Disposal Capacity loss when wastewater pond #6 washed out due to floods in 2006. PW&P contacted State CAL-EMA office to obtain funding since the storms occurred during a State declared emergency, however CAL-EMA never approved the funding request. Increases to the treatment capacity may be realized by adding additional aerators to District ponds. Increases to disposal capacity can be realized by adding ponds or spray fields. Staff is currently working with development community to develop a disposal master plan. On May 3, 2011 your Board authorized WWD 41 to purchase 148 acres adjacent to the existing WWTP to be used for spray fields and/or ponds to address this issue.
WWD41 Existing Facilities & Newly Acquired Land
Community Facilities District No. 1 Background On April 9, 1985 your Board adopted a Resolution of Intention to form a Community Facilities District (CFD No. 1) for approximately 2,530 acres in the Shaver Lake area Formed at the request of five developer property interests to obtain bond funding authorization for development related infrastructure Originally contemplated as a method of financing major facilities which were necessary but not feasible to be constructed incrementally or by one land owner Infrastructure was to be consistent with the Board adopted Shaver Lake Sewer and Water Master Plan, County General Plan, and all applicable Specific Plans
Community Facilities District No. 1 Background Project area consisted of approximately 2,530 acres with an anticipated full build out of roughly 4,560 dwelling units Project area involved five major land holdings and included : – Timberwine – Wildflower Village – Bretz Mountain – Undeveloped Sierra Cedars, Inc. properties within the Sierra Cedars Community Services District – Kenneth B. Seibert property south of Sierra Cedars Land was identified in the CFD No. 1 at Shaver Lake Final Project Report presented to your Board June 24, 1985 as representing virtually all of the remaining developable land in the Shaver Lake Area in 1985
Community Facilities District No. 1 Background CFD No. 1 provided financing for facilities by allowing the County to sell increments of bonds as determined by the Board County would then levy a Special Tax on the property to repay the principal and interest No bonds have been sold to date but authorization remains intact
Community Facilities District No. 1 1985 Master Implementation Agreement Implementation document for CFD No. 1 Mechanism for collection of fees for infrastructure or facilities shared equally by all land owners (Proportionate Facilities) Outlined criteria for bond issuance and reimbursement Established $800 water system development fee Established $1,000 sewer system development fee
Community Facilities District No. 1 Proportionate Facilities Board adopted Final Project Report identified infrastructure to be constructed including: – Shaver Lake supplied surface water system – Regional wastewater treatment facility expansion – Construction of a collector road along the State adopted freeway corridor from Cressman Road to Bretz Road – Fire protection facilities – School facilities Final Project Report also included Cost Estimates for each improvement area, Rate and Method of Apportionment of Special Tax and Legal, Property Appraiser and Financial Consultant’s Reports
Community Facilities District No. 1 1985 Interdeveloper Agreement Funding mechanism to provide reimbursement for certain infrastructure construction of those improvements from bond authorization and fee payment under the agreement. Intended for construction of those improvements that are shared by two or more Landowners but not shared equally by all. Understood that if improvement ultimately cost more then estimated, no reimbursement in excess of the agreed upon amount would be made Identified as disproportionate infrastructure
Community Facilities District No. 1 1991 Amended Interdeveloper Agreement Funding mechanism to provide reimbursement for construction of those improvements that are shared by two or more Landowners. Implementation of the 1991 Agreement was through an amendment to the original to cause establishment of a fund for the purpose of receiving, holding and disbursing the fees, costs and reimbursements. Fees are collected at the close of escrow for the first transfer of ownership of a lot or condominium. Fees required to be increased annually by an inflation figure of 3% per the Agreement
Community Facilities District No. 1 1991 Master Implementation Agreement Amendment Amended to incorporate First Amendment to the 1985 Intradeveloper Agreement Established a process to release the Intradeveloper Agreement and Master Implementation Agreement as a lien against the property upon payment of applicable fees
Community Facilities District No. 1 Accumulated Funds Partial list of accumulated funds under the Master Implementation Agreement for proportionate infrastructure and facilities: – Shaver Lake Surface Water System Construction: $2,177,902 – Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion: $1,028,853 – Collector Road along State adopted freeway corridor: $1,270,466 – Snow Removal Facilities (snow removal equipment): $243,766 – Fire Protection Facilities (fire station, fuel breaks): $152,178 – School Facilities (per agreement with school district): $14,460 Funds are collected for infrastructure infrastructure or facilities shared equally by all land owners
Community Facilities District No. 1 Accumulated Funds Partial list of accumulated funds under the Intradeveloper Agreement for disproportionate infrastructure and facilities: – (Water) Phase 2 Northeast Reservoir: $19,762 – (Water) Phase 1 Southeast Reservoir: $37,023 – (Water) Water line from Southeast Reservoir to WF Village: $78,121 – (Road) Littlefield Road thru Wildflower Village: $199,560 – (Road) Road Improvements thru Seibert Property: $102,809 – (Sewer) Upgrade to Existing Interceptor: $30,354 Funds are collected for infrastructure or facilities shared by two or more Landowners but not shared equally by all.
Community Facilities District No. 1 Development Fee Areas CFD No. 1 is divided into five development fee areas – CFD 1-A (Timberwine) – CFD 1-B (Wildflower) – CFD 1-C (Bretz Mt. Village) – CFD 1-D (Seibert) – CFD 1-E (Sierra Cedar) Funds are collected at the close of escrow for the first transfer of ownership of a lot or condominium Includes funds for both the proportionate and disproportionate infrastructure and facilities Vary depending upon geographical area due disproportionate infrastructure
Community Facilities District No. 1 Summary Formed in 1985 at the request of five developer property interests Mechanism to provide reimbursement for construction of certain infrastructure and facilities required by development Infrastructure and Facilities are consistent with the Board adopted Shaver Lake Sewer and Water Master Plan, County General Plan, and all applicable Specific Plans
