Subject:
Easement Agreement with Southern California Edison for Booster Pump Station No.2
RECOMMENDATION
Approve Agreement 
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
On May 19, 2020, City Council approved adding the Carbon Canyon Booster Pump Station No. 2 and Restroom at Olinda Ranch Park project as a new Capital Improvement Project (CIP).  The scope of this project includes constructing a new booster pump station building, a new restroom, installing water booster pumps, and adding a permanent generator along the easterly portion of Olinda Ranch Park.  Currently, Booster Pump Station No.2 is located approximately one mile northeast of Olinda Ranch Park and needs to be relocated to Olinda Ranch Park to improve safety since the existing pump station site takes access from a very short driveway off Catbon Canyon Road.  This new pump station will continue to deliver water to Booster Pump Station No.3 located northeast of Olinda Village that then pumps water to the Carbon Canyon reservoirs at the top of nearby hills.

Final design for this CIP is nearing completion and expected to be completed within the next month.  In addition, staff is working on obtaining a Caltrans encroachment permit since this project involves work on Carbon Canyon Road (Route 142).  It is anticipated that it will take about 6-8 weeks to obtain the permit.  Staff expects to advertise this project for bids within the next two months and bring forward an award of construction contract for City Council consideration later this year or early next year.

As one of the final steps before construction can start, Southern California Edison (SCE) requires that City of Brea sign an easement agreement that will allow SCE to install their infrastructure to provide power for this project.  The “Grant of Easement” is attached that shows the easement area needed by SCE to provide power. Staff has also included “Exhibit A”, which shows the preliminary design documents that were utilized by SCE to create the easement.  SCE has approved this route to construct this project.

The City Attorney has reviewed the easement agreement and approves as to form.  There is no cost associated with granting this easement to SCE. 
 
FISCAL IMPACT/SUMMARY
Staff recommends the approval of the utility easement with SCE for the construction to commence.  There is no cost associated with this action. There is no impact to the General Fund.
