prise was paying for power purchased from the
grid. Economically more viable and offering less
risk, PPA’s are presently the strategy of choice for
the Enterprise’s renewable power projects. In July
2014, it signed an agreement for a 14 MW solar
facility at the RMWTF, scheduled to be opera-tional
by the end of 2015. The 20-year arrange-ment
is structured with two five-year options at
the end and the option to purchase after seven,
ten and fifteen years. The levelized rate is approx-imately
$78 a megawatt hour. With the addition
of this project and including federal hydropower,
19 percent of the department’s energy will come
from renewable sources by 2016, putting it well
ahead of its 25 by 25 goal.

mit because of expensive capital improvements
that would be needed to comply. These utilities
successfully argued that the CEQA exemption
granted was not broad enough to cover filter
backwash, and therefore the discharges should
not be covered. As a result, filter backwash is not
exempt from the toxic rule under this permit or
any other state or regional permit, which means
some utilities will have to get sanitary sewer per-mits
or treat their filter backwash onsite.
Thanks to everyone, especially the members
of CA-NV AWWA NPDES Permit Ad Hoc Com-mittee,
who worked hard on this process over
the past three years. Many hours of work and ef-fort
were undertaken by utilities across the state
to craft a permit that balances environmental
protection with necessary drinking water oper-ations
and the cost of compliance.
The State Board directed its staff to coordi-nate
with industry associations to develop and
implement a plan for outreach to water sys-tems.
If you would like to be part of the out-reach
effort, receive email updates on the per-mit
or obtain the outreach workshop schedule,
please contact me (email@example.com)
or Greg Buncab (GregoryLee.Buncab@acwd.
com). The two of us are currently leading an
effort, in collaboration with ACWA and CWA
and SWRCB staff, to organize a series of work-shops
on the permit to be held throughout
California. The Section’s Operator Symposium
(March 17-18, 2015 at the Doubletree Hotel in
Ontario, CA) will also provide both members
and interested non-members an opportunity
to learn more about how to prepare, apply for
and obtain the new NPDES permit. S
