This program will provide protection from contamination of the City's water supply through building construction methods. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that public water systems implement a Cross -Connection Program. The Backflow Prevention/Cross-Connection Program is intended to protect the public water system from contamination hazards that may siphon back into the water system. The program will allow the City to provide the safest and highest quality water to its customers. The Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) has also become a requirement of the City's Water Department. The City of Georgetown published its first report on October 19, 1999. This report is a TNRCC requirement for all public drinking water supply agencies and is published by the City to provide information on the City's drinking water quality. The report is published in the City's Quarterly Newsletter to ensure widespread readership of the document Utility trench repairs ($8,000) and Water Capital Improvements ($100,000), previously budgeted in the Capital Improvements Fund, have been moved to the Water Distribution Department as ongoing capital maintenance projects. COMMUNITY OWNED UTILITIES ANNUAL OPERATING PLAN ELEMENT 2000/01 87 WATER TREATMENT FACILITIES The City of Georgetown operates three water treatment plants: the Lake Water Treatment Facility, rated at 7.5 million gallons per day (MGD); the San Gabriel Water Treatment Facility, rated at 5.45 MGD, and the Southside Water Treatment Plant, rated at 3.0 MGD. The City of Georgetown retains ownership of these plants and contracts for their operation with a private contractor. During 1998/99 the City entered into a partnership agreement with Chisholm Trail Special Utility District (CTSUD) that provides for joint long-term water supply planning. The agreement gives CTSUD 840 acre feet of water supply and 2.18 MGD of off-peak water treatment capacity in exchange for service area and compliance with city -level fire flow requirements as CTSUD expands its water system.

This transfer is a payment of franchise fees which would have been payable to the General Fund from a non -City provider of such services. This department is also used to account for the contractual obligations not specific to any individual department of the fund. Special Projects and Services include programs such as public education on water conservation, as well as contracts and professional services. This department also includes payments to the Brazos River Authority (BRA) for the City's surface water supply. The City has water rights to 6,720 acre feet in Lake Georgetown and 15,488 acre feet in Lake Stillhouse Hollow. These water rights are expected to meet the needs of Georgetown's current certificated water service area through full build out.

This notification process will be significant in protecting the public health within the community. Utility trench repairs ($8,000), Wastewater Capital Projects ($100,000) and Edwards Aquifer Inflow and Infiltration ($50,000), which were previously budgeted in the Wastewater Capital Projects Fund, have been moved to the Wastewater Collection Department as on-going maintenance projects. COMMUNITY OWNED UTILITIES ANNUAL OPERATING PLAN ELEMENT 2000/01 91 WASTEWATER TREATMENT FACILITIES The City of Georgetown operates three wastewater treatment plants: the Dove Springs Wastewater Treatment Facility, rated at 1.25 million gallons per day (MGD); the San Gabriel Wastewater Treatment Facility, rated at of 2.5 MGD; and the Berry Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility, rated at 100,000 gallons per day. These award winning plants treat domestic and industrial effluent according to statutory regulations, and provide environmentally safe disposal of wastewater materials. The City of Georgetown contracts with a private contractor to provide for the safe operation of the wastewater plants. The private contractor conducts routine wastewater bio -monitoring, nitrogen removal and dechlorination. The City continues to closely monitor and evaluate these operations and retains ownership of the plants. The Pecan Branch Wastewater Treatment Plant will be constructed in 2001/02 to provide additional system capacity of 3 million gallons per day and to serve Sun City. The plant is scheduled to come on-line in the summer of 2002. 2000/01 ADOPTED BUDGET AND 2001/02 PROJECTED BUDGET: 99/00 00/01 01/02 98/99 99/00 Projected Adopted Projected Base Actual Budget Actual (% Change *) (% Change **) 760,526 718,496 718,496 Operations 660,942 (-8.o%) 839,568 (27.0%) 760,526 718,496 718,496 * Percent change of 00/01Proposed from 99/00 Projected Actual ** Percent change of 01/02 Projected Base from 00/01 Proposed 92 660,942 (-8.0%) 839,568 (27.0%) COMMUNITY OWNED UTILITIES ANNUAL OPERATING PLAN ELEMENT 2000/01 ACTUAL ACTUAL BUDGETED PROJECTED PROPOSED ACTIVITY INDICATORS FY 97/98 FY 98/99 FY 00 FY 99/00 FY 00/01 1) Wastewater Utility Customers 8,700 8,700 9,300 9,800 10,300 2) Average Daily Flow (MGD) 2.918 2.6 2.603 2.616 2.836 3) Peak Daily Flow (MGD) 5.0 5.0 9.7 9.7 9.7 4) Million gallons treated 1,065 949 950 955 1,035 2000/01 ADOPTED BUDGET AND 2001/02 PROJECTED BUDGET: 99/00 00/01 01/02 98/99 99/00 Projected Adopted Projected Base Actual Budget Actual (% Change *) (% Change **) 760,526 718,496 718,496 Operations 660,942 (-8.o%) 839,568 (27.0%) 760,526 718,496 718,496 * Percent change of 00/01Proposed from 99/00 Projected Actual ** Percent change of 01/02 Projected Base from 00/01 Proposed 92 660,942 (-8.0%) 839,568 (27.0%) COMMUNITY OWNED UTILITIES ANNUAL OPERATING PLAN ELEMENT 2000/01 WASTEWATER CONTRACTS The Wastewater Utility transfers two percent of its gross billings to the General Fund and Street Special Revenue Fund.
