Request #19-446
  Closed

To the CPUC Public Records Act coordinators:

This Public Records Act request is submitted pursuant to Government Code sec. 6250, et seq.  I am seeking documents referred to in CPUC Decision 14-08-11, Appendix B, p. 30 (Proposed Settlement Agreement, Special Request #19: Cross-Connection Rules).  See: http://docs.cpuc.ca.gov/PublishedDocs/Efile/G000/M080/K290/80290300.PDF  (PDF p. 40 of 388).

(1) Page 30, lines 15-17, states: "ORA expressed concern about the potential for the modifications to cause some customers to install backflow prevention assemblies unnecessarily." I hereby request any and all documents in which ORA expressed concern about the potential for the modifications to cause some customers to install backflow prevention assemblies unnecessarily.  Presumably ORA's expressed concern is in published documents related to the making of the decision in this matter that the CPUC could refer me to.  I also hereby request any and all documents in which the ORA has subsequently, after the CPUC’s adoption of Decision 14-08-011, expressed concern about the potential for the modifications to cause some California Water Service Co. customers to install backflow prevention assemblies unnecessarily.

(2) Page 30, lines 20-23, states: "Once the full scale CCCP is implemented, Cal Water will begin tracking the rate of error for mistakenly notifying customers that they must install a backflow prevention device, and will report its findings in its next GRC."  I hereby request documents showing Cal Water's tracking of the rate of error for mistakenly notifying customers that they must install a backflow prevention device.  I hereby request the report of Cal Water's findings in its next GRC.  I hereby request any and all communications, including but not limited to e-mails and letters, exchanged between the CPUC and its agents and Cal Water and its agents concerning this tracking the rate of error.

(3) Page 30, lines 23-24, states: "Cal Water will also provide a proposal on how it may reduce the program's error rate in its next GRC."  I hereby request documents showing Cal Water's proposal on how it may reduce the program's error rate.  I hereby request any and all communications, including but not limited to e-mails and letters, exchanged between the CPUC and its agents and Cal Water and its agents concerning this proposal.

(4) Page 30, lines 24-27, states, "[A]ny customer notices indicating that a backflow prevention assembly is required will clearly specify that the customer has the option of requesting that Cal Water conduct an on-site inspection to confirm the requirement before having to install the backflow prevention assembly."  I hereby request any and all documents concerning any customer notices indicating that a backflow prevention assembly is required will clearly specify that the customer has the option of requesting that Cal Water conduct an on-site inspection to confirm the requirement before having to install the backflow prevention assembly.  This request includes any and all customer complaints filed with the CPUC concerning Cal Water Service's backflow prevention assembly requirement from January 1, 2014 to present.

(5) I wish to know the date, application number, decision number and other identifying information for the "next GRC" for Cal Water Service referred to on page 30 of this document.  I am unaware if the "next GRC" has yet occurred since Decision 14-08-011.

Before the CPUC's reply to this request is complete, I wish to learn the cost, if any, of this request.  I also request the CPUC's assistance in locating any of these documents that are otherwise already published (for example, with the next GRC).

Sincerely,

Jason A. Bezis
