AN ORDINANCE approving the Carnation 2015 Comprehensive Water System Plan.
1. King County has adopted K.C.C. chapter 13.24, which requires approval of comprehensive plans for water utilities that distribute or obtain water in unincorporated King County as a prerequisite for operating in unincorporated King County, receiving approval for annexation proposals, being granted right of way franchises, and being given approval for right of way construction permits. K.C.C. 13.24.060 prescribes the requirements for approval of such plans, including consistency with state and local planning requirements.
2. The city of Carnation's previous water system plan was prepared in 2009. Both Washington state Department of Health and King County regulations require water system plans to be updated every six years.
3. The city's service area is within King County and the city has adopted a water system plan ("the plan").
4. King County has adopted a comprehensive plan that includes water supply policies in its provisions for facilities and services (policies F-101 through F-254) that call for consistency with other adopted plans, support for regional water supply planning, pursuit of reclaimed water, water conservation and protection of water resources.
5. K.C.C. chapter 13.24 requires the utilities technical review committee to review and make a recommendation to the King County executive and council on the plan and the requirements under K.C.C. chapter 13.24 and consistency with the King County Comprehensive Plan. The utilities technical review committee has reviewed the planning data and city operations and has found:
a. The plan uses population and employment forecasts developed by the Puget Sound Regional Council for the city's service area;
b. Portions of the city's service area are in unincorporated King County;
c. The capital facility plan is adequate to meet anticipated facility and service needs;
