  Answer: l Emergency
1 Describe the emergency and explain how this is a drought related drinking water emergency or threatened emergency. Indicate if the community is out of water or estimated timeframe for expected water outage. Please attach any supporting documentation/calculations.
  Answer: Only source of drinking water violates the primary MCL for Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6), a drinking water source for School students, teachers, and staff on a daily basis.
2 What conservation measures (indicate if mandatory or voluntary) has the water system(s) instituted? Please indicate other possible conservation measures that the water system(s) plans to implement, or has implemented.

  Answer: l
1 Is the water system impacted by a water quality problem? If Yes, please describe the water quality problem impacting the water system including contaminants and MCL exceedances:
  Answer: l Yes
  Answer: Water Quality Problem = Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6) Primary Drinking Water MCL violation.

Primary MCL = 10 parts per billion
Current running quarterly avg. = 24 parts per billion
Compliance MCL Target = 8 parts per billion
2 If there is a water quality problem impacting the water system, please indicate the source(s) of contamination: Describe the source of contamination and indicate if a Responsible Party for the contamination has been identified:
  Answer: l Naturally Occuring Source
  Answer: In the hydro-geology of the groundwater aquifer.
3 Is the water system under any compliance order? Describe the compliance order below:
  Answer: l Yes
  Answer: Notice of Violation Compliance Action Plan in coordination with Yolo County Environmental Health Department.


1 Describe the project proposed to address the drought related drinking water emergency or water quality impairment :
  Answer: To retrofit the existing 55 gpm (and only) water well serving Fairfield Elementary School with SBA Exchange wellhead treatment to reduce Hexavalent Chromium detection levels below the primary drinking water MCL of 10 parts per billion on a regular basis.
2 How will the project achieve the most immediate and reliable supply of domestic water for the duration of the drought related drinking water emergency or water quality impairment?
  Answer: The retrofit of wellhead treatment will bring the School's only water well into reliable compliance with the Hexavalent Chromium (Cr6) primary drinking water MCL and provide safe and reliable water supplies to the entire School population.
3 Describe the existing Water System:
  Answer: The water system is comprised of one water well equipped with pump and motor to distribute well supplies for domestic and irrigation purposes at the Fairfield Elementary School site. Distribution system improvements convey water from the well to the buildings requiring water service and to the irrigation system distribution pipelines serving landscaping and playfields.
4 Is the project for an interim or permanent solution, or both? Please explain:
  Answer: l Permanent
  Answer: Wellhead treatment is a permanent solution that will provide MCL compliant water supplies on a daily basis for the remaining life of the well.
5 If the proposed project is not a permanent solution, do you have any plans for a permanent solution?
  Answer: l
6 When must project commence or, if construction has already begun, when did the project commence (interim and permanent solution)?
  Answer: 07/01/2016
  Answer: Assuming funding is approved by June 2016, the project must commence immediately to comply with primary MCL violations and protect the health of the school population.

9 Approximate number of people that will be served by the project:
  Answer: 56
10 Approximate amount of drinking water that will be provided by the project:
  Answer: The water well will deliver up to a maximum of 79,000 gallons per day.
