SAWS Board Will Consider Second Amendment on Vista Ridge Garney Contract

Tuesday Board meeting to include vote on additional changes in anticipation of financial closing

On Tuesday, Nov. 1, the SAWS Board of Trustees will consider a second amendment to the Water Transmission and Purchase Agreement with Vista Ridge LLC and authorization of the SAWS president/CEO to declare financial close on the project.

Financial Close will signal the Project Company led by Garney Construction closing on the loan and contribution of equity to begin constructing the project, and SAWS' long-term commitment to purchase the water made available over the thirty-year term of the Agreement. After thirty years, SAWS would take ownership of the pipeline and continue to have access to groundwater permits for an additional thirty years. This is a significant new step in the project and a monumental achievement for our community to secure our water future.

When finalized, the proposed amendment and authorization item will be posted to Website visitors will also find a conformed copy of the entire agreement with proposed pages incorporated.

Vista Ridge is the 140-mile water project projected for completion in 2020. It would provide the largest non-Edwards Aquifer supply in our city's history.

Garney Construction has more than 30 years of experience with SAWS, performing more than $156 million in major projects including SAWS' Aquifer Storage and Recovery facility, the Local Carrizo Aquifer project, and SAWS recycled water pipeline.
