Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute an Easement Purchase Agreement with the Lower Colorado River Authority for acquisition of tunnel, intake riser, and temporary construction easements for BCRUA Phase 2 project.

 

Body

The Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority (BCRUA) has negotiated the purchase of several property easements from the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA). The proposed subsurface tunnel easements, intake riser easement and temporary construction easement will be used to construct the BCRUA Phase 2 Deep Water Intake Project.  This project will enable the BCRUA to access water at the deeper elevation in Lake Travis which will help protect the City during times of drought.

The agreements with LCRA are for the acquisition of a 0.523 and 2.791 acre subsurface property easement, 3.422 acre intake, tunnel and riser easement, and a 1.379 acre temporary construction easement.

The negotiated purchase price for these easements is $63,105 and has been approved by the BCRUA Operations Committee.
