Background and Discussion:
This professional services agreement for on-call geotechnical, environmental engineering and environmental consulting allows the Flood Control District to request required investigations, engineering, monitoring, regulatory reporting for compliance with environmental rules and regulations associated with Flood Control District operations and maintenance programs. These environmental engineering and consulting services have allowed the Flood Control District to maintain compliance with permitting requirements.

Expected Impact:
The requested agreement will allow the Flood Control District to maintain environmental regulatory compliance for ongoing operations and maintenance programs and continue the mission of flood damage reduction projects without delay.
