available to the Department of Health Services for grants and direct
expenditures to fund emergency and urgent actions to ensure that safe
drinking water supplies are available to all Californians. Eligible
projects include, but are not limited to, the following:
   (1) Providing alternate water supplies including bottled water
where necessary to protect public health.
   (2) Improvements in existing water systems necessary to prevent
contamination or provide other sources of safe drinking water
including replacement wells.
   (3) Establishing connections to an adjacent water system.
   (4) Design, purchase, installation and initial operation costs for
water treatment equipment and systems.
   (b) Grants and expenditures shall not exceed $250,000 per project.
   (c) Direct expenditures for the purposes of this section shall be
exempt from contracting and procurement requirements to the extent
necessary to take immediate action to protect public health and
safety.



75022.  The sum of one hundred eighty million dollars ($180,000,000)
shall be available to the Department of Health Services for grants
for small community drinking water system infrastructure improvements

contaminants, other health hazards and by whether the community is
disadvantaged or severely disadvantaged. Special consideration shall
be given to small communities with limited financial resources.
Eligible recipients include public agencies and incorporated mutual
water companies that serve disadvantaged communities. The Department
of Health Services may make grants for the purpose of financing
feasibility studies and to meet the eligibility requirements for a
construction grant. Construction grants shall be limited to

and projects within a hydrologic region identified in the California
Water Plan; the Regional Water Quality Control Board region or
subdivision or other region or sub-region specifically identified by
the department.
   (2) Proposals that effectively integrate water management with
land use planning.
   (3) Proposals that effectively resolve significant water-related
conflicts within or between regions.
   (4) Proposals that contribute to the attainment of one or more of
the objectives of the CALFED Bay-Delta Program.
   (5) Proposals that address statewide priorities.

shall not be reallocated to another region but will remain
unallocated until such time as an adopted plan from the hydrologic
region or sub-region is submitted to the department.
