As the governing body of the Contra Costa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (District), APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Chief Engineer, or designee, to execute on behalf of the District, the First Amendment to the License Agreement between the District and the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) to extend the term through December 31, 2025, granting CCWD access rights to use a portion of the District’s levee roads along Walnut Creek and Pacheco Creek, Martinez area. (Project No. 7520-6B8371)
CCWD will pay the District an annual fee of $3,660, which will be applied to the District’s Zone 3B for the maintenance of the levee roads during the term of the agreement.
On December 7, 2010, the District entered into a License Agreement with CCWD to allow CCWD access to the Short Cut Pipeline, which CCWD operates and maintains for the United States Bureau of Reclamation. The District is granting a license, rather than permanent rights, because if either Walnut Creek or Pacheco Creek is reconfigured, the location of the access rights required by CCWD will change. The first amendment extends the term of the existing license through December 31, 2025, and updates the insurance requirement to $2,000,000.
