The currently estimated cost of the project, including program costs from March 2022 through completion of construction (design, construction, implementation, and project contingency) is $93 million. It is anticipated that State and Federal grants will be used for 50% of that total cost. The remaining cost is anticipated to be funded with low-interest Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loans totaling $47 million. The City of Grover Beach is responsible for 36% of the costs under the Cost Sharing Agreement approved by each City Council. If half of the City’s costs are covered by grant funding, as expected, the City’s share of funding will be $16.7 million, which will be funded with the WIFIA loan to be repaid by water rates. The projected cost does not include the cost of the land for the AWPF in Grover Beach which was purchased previously.
