Stormwater Utility Rate Study City of Mt. Shasta

Mt. Shasta, CA

The original Stormwater Master Plan (adopted 1999), is obsolete and did not sufficiently guide Public Works Department operations, maintenance, or capital improvement priorities. As a result, the City has missed opportunities to improve its drainage system and implement multi-benefit green infrastructure projects in response to the changing climate. As existing infrastructure continues to age, improvements must be made to prevent system failure. Climate change will further exacerbate the City's drainage issues in the future, as storms intensify, and winter precipitation shifts on average from snow to rain. A full update of the Plan in 2020 addressed these challenges and highlight opportunities to improve.

Today, Mt. Shasta's stormwater system consists of remnant creeks and wetlands which are interconnected to an aging network of pipes, drains, ditches, and culverts. There is a great deal of deferred maintenance in the system, with key pieces of infrastructure at or beyond their design lifetime. Drainage in Mt. Shasta is further complicated by the presence of saturated, poorly draining soils in many parts of the City. However, there are substantial opportunities to improve drainage in the City while also restoring the habitat value of creeks and wetlands. By implementing multi-benefit projects, the City can improve local water quality, flood management, and the environment for the community in a cost-effective manner.

The Stormwater Utility Rate Study will catalog and price out capital improvement projects, operations and maintenance, and new operations for surface water quality testing and vegetation management listed in the 2020 Master Plan. The final study should have options of improvements and services that could be considered part of an upcoming Proposition 218 process to increase stormwater utility rates. The rate study should also price out the improvement over a period of time to lessen the financial impact to rate payers.
