GAP is a water reuse effort <br />that provides recycled water for landscape irrigation for medians, parks, schools, and golf <br />courses; industrial uses such as carpet dying; toilet flushing; and power generation <br />cooling. The existing recycled water distribution system exists in only a small portion of <br />the City and is wholly owned and operated by OCWD. <br />In order to increase the recycled water availability and usage in the City, staff <br />recommends approving the agreement amendment (Exhibit 1) with T.R. Holliman and <br />Associates, Inc. to expand the previous scope of work to identify 35 connections and four <br />City medians for potential conversion to recycled water, and provide for the technical <br />support required to facilitate the conversions. The expanded scope of work will also <br />deliver verified profiles of each of the City's current recycled water customers, including <br />evaluations of conformance with applicable requirements and regulations.
