CH2M <br />was awarded this contract in November 2015. CH2M is close to completing the preliminary <br />design phase which consists of the development of a preliminary design report (PDR) and 30% <br />drawings. <br /> <br />Today’s Action <br />A resolution certifying the EIR (attachment A) is a required action before construction can begin <br />on the WRRF project. It is also required as a step in obtaining State Revolving Fund funding. <br />Adopting the additional resolutions (attachments C and D) related to the WRRF Project will <br />provide needed tools for staff to continue efficiently and effectively moving the project forward. <br /> <br />Figure 1, following, shows the timeline for the next steps in the project through full design. <br /> <br />12 <br />Packet Pg. 253
