Resolution - Water Utilities:
Consider a resolution authorizing the Mayor to execute the Second Amendment to the Meredith Supply Agreement, with the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority, for the continued purchase of raw water.
The Canadian River Municipal Water Authority (CRMWA) manages and operates Lake Meredith, a reservoir formed when the Sanford Dam was built on the Canadian River in the early 1960s. The dam is located approximately 160 miles north of Lubbock. Lubbock used approximately 2.1 billion gallons of water from Lake Meredith in 2020, which is approximately 15% of Lubbock's overall water supply.
In January 1961, the City of Lubbock entered into the Original Agreement with the Canadian River Municipal Water Authority (CRMWA) to receive raw water from Lake Meredith as a member city (Meredith Supply Agreement). In June 1969, the City of Lubbock executed the First Amendment to the Meredith Supply Agreement. This amendment defined "year" to mean a calendar year. The amendment also required the CRMWA Board to determine estimated charges to member cities for the upcoming fiscal year by August of each year.
In February 1999, the City entered into another agreement supplemental to the Meredith Supply Agreement called the Prepayment Agreement. This agreement established the terms of prepayment of obligations to the United States Bureau of Reclamation incurred during the construction of Lake Meredith. Under this agreement, the terms of the Meredith Supply Agreement remained in effect until the obligations were paid in full.
This Second Amendment to the Meredith Supply Agreement is necessary to extend the terms of the 1961 Original Agreement for the supply of raw water from CRMWA to the City of Lubbock, since the obligations have been paid off under the Prepayment Agreement. This amendment extends the CRMWA water supply agreement for the useful life of the project.
