SCOPE OF WORK:

The San Diego County Water Authority is requesting proposals from qualified firms to provide design of the San Vicente Dam Raise Project. The existing San Vicente Dam, located near Lakeside, an incorporated community of San Diego, California, was constructed in 1943 for water supply purposes by the City of San Diego, the owner and operator of the dam and reservoir. The existing San Vicente Reservoir has a capacity of approximately 90,000 acre-feet. The dam is a conventional concrete gravity dam founded on bedrock. It has a structural height of 220 feet, and a crest length of 963 feet. The spillway consists of a 275-foot long uncontrolled ogee-crest overflow section near the center of the dam.
The dam raise design and construction must be integrated with existing conveyance systems at the site. The City of San Diego system consists of gravity flow pipelines, which must remain operational during the dam raise construction. The Water Authority system consists of a pump station, surge control facility, and associated network of pipelines.
The Water Authority is responsible for design and construction of the dam raise, and will obtain rights to the additional reservoir capacity created by the raise. The City of San Diego retains ownership and operation of the dam and reservoir, and also obtains increased flexibility in the use of their existing storage capacity.
Conveyance facilities will be constructed at the San Vicente site by the Water Authority prior to dam raise construction. These facilities consist of San Vicente Reservoir Interconnect Pipeline, San Vicente Pump Station, San Vicente Surge Control Facility, San Vicente to Second Aqueduct Pipeline, and San Vicente Interconnect Pipeline to the Moreno-Lakeside Pipeline.
The main facilities associated with the San Vicente Dam Raise Project consist of a raised dam structure and associated inlet/outlet works, downstream control facility; pipeline to connect the downstream control facility to San Vicente Reservoir Interconnect Pipeline; two saddle dams; relocated marina recreation facilities; and access roads to the dam crest, relocated marina, and First Aqueduct Diversion Structure. In addition, facilities will be constructed to replace the function of the City of San Diego's Bypass Pipeline connection to the terminus of the First Aqueduct.
The scope of work is divided into five primary phases: Phase I Preliminary Design, Phase II - Final Design, Phase III - Public Bidding Services, Phase IV - Construction Support Services, and Phase V - Initial Filling and Monitoring Services. Phase I and Phase II are further subdivided to define important milestone deliverables and allow appropriate reviews of the design work at key stages by the Water Authority, City of San Diego, and the California Department of Water Resources Division of Safety of Dams. It is currently anticipated that the key Phase I milestones will be at 10 percent and 30 percent design completion and that key Phase II milestones will be at 60 percent and 90 percent design completion, followed by Final Design.
Each phase will be separately authorized in writing, completed, and accepted by the Water Authority prior to commencement of the following phase. Specific deliverables are required for each phase.
All work shall comply with requirements of federal and state laws, Water Authority requirements, professional engineering and industry standards, and other regulations related to design, construction, and operation of water storage facilities, marinas, and related features. All work shall comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title 24. The work shall be adequate to gain the approval of the Water Authority and the California Department of Water Resources Division of Safety of Dam.
Estimated Contract Value: $15,000,000

SMALL CONTRACTOR OUTREACH AND OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM:
The Water Authority's Small Contractor Outreach and Opportunities Program is designed to maximize participation of diverse, qualified, small contractors and material suppliers seeking to do business with the Water Authority. Effective implementation of SCOOP is a requirement of the project and award of a contract will be determined, in part, by the Contractor's demonstrated effort in conducting effective outreach to small contractors. Failure to comply with the requirements herein shall render the Respondent as non-responsive.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Planning Commission of the County of San Diego will conduct a public hearing on a Tentative Map, Zone Reclassification, and Site Plan as follows:
HEARING INFORMATION:
Date: May 5, 2006
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Location: Department of Planning and Land Use Hearing Room,
5201 Ruffin Road, Suite B, San Diego, California 92123
APPLICANT: Woodside Investors LLC & PDIT Investment LLC
PROJECT/CASE NUMBER(S):
TM 5396, R04-019, S04-054
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The project proposes 80 residential condominium units on the 4.03-acre subject property with associated landscaping and recreational amenities. The three-story proposed units are in 14 different buildings with 4 to 7 units per building and private garages. A Zone Reclassification proposes to change the existing C36 General Commercial zoning (which allows dwelling units only as a secondary use to principal commercial uses) to C34 General Commercial/Residential in order to allow residences as the primary use on the property. Family Residential is allowed as the primary use in C34 pursuant to Section 2342.a of the Zoning Ordinance. The Zone Reclassification also proposes to change the height designator from “G” to “H” to allow for three stories instead of two, although the maximum height limit will remain at 35 feet. A concurrent Site Plan is required because the current zoning includes a “B” Community Design Review special area regulation, which requires compliance with the Lakeside Design Guidelines. The subject property is designated (13) General Commercial by the Lakeside Community Plan.
LOCATION: Southeast corner of the intersection of Woodside Avenue and Marilla Drive.
ENVIRONMENTAL STATUS: It is recommended that a Mitigated Negative Declaration previously circulated in public review and on file with the Department of Planning and Land Use as Environmental Review 04-14-033 be adopted.
GENERAL INFORMATION: This public hearing is accessible to individuals with disabilities. If interpreter services for the hearing impaired are needed, please call the hearing secretary at (858) 694-3816, or California Relay Service, if notifying by TDD, no later than seven days prior to the date of the hearing.
NOTE: If you challenge in court the action which may be taken on this proposal, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the above public hearing, or in written correspondence delivered to the Hearing Body at or before the hearing. Rules of the Hearing Body may limit or impose requirements upon the submittal of such written correspondence.
