Northwest San Ramon GHAD

The Northwest San Ramon Geologic Hazard Abatement District (“GHAD”) was formed to provide monitoring and maintenance of improvements related to geologic hazard management and other responsibilities as a landowner, within The Preserve Development in the Northwest San Ramon GHAD and levy and collect assessments in order to perform its activities.

The GHAD responsibilities, which are the subject of this report and the Plan of Control, are defined as any activity necessary or incidental to the prevention, mitigation, abatement, or control of a geologic hazard, construction, maintenance, repair, or operation of improvement; or the issuance and servicing of bonds issued to finance any of the foregoing (Section 26505).

Engineer's Report

Each fiscal year, the District Engineer prepares an Engineer’s Report, which includes the budget for the GHAD for that year. The annual budget for the District consists of regular site monitoring, contract services for annual mitigation and repairs, and administrative costs. In addition to paying for the annual expenditures of the District, funds collected through this assessment are placed into a dedicated reserve fund for long-term replacement funds/deferred maintenance, and a reserve to respond to damage caused by geologic hazards, such as landslides or large-scale settlements.

For general information and information regarding assessments, or to report landslides or maintenance issues, contact Robin Bartlett, District Engineer, at (925) 973-2683 or [email protected]; or Shane Hsieh, Senior Civil Engineer, at (925) 973-2681 or [email protected]
