"c. Should the property identified in 3.a. be sold by the Commonwealth, any proceeds received from a sale shall be used to offset the capital costs of a DJJ Central Virginia Juvenile Correctional Center location.

d. In addition, the Department of General Services shall determine the highest and best use for the former Beaumont Juvenile Correctional Center (BJCC) property located at 3500 Beaumont Road in Powhatan County. In determining such use DGS shall (i) estimate revenues and costs from any sale or development of the entire property or any portion thereof, and (ii) the viability of various options for potential use of the property by the Department of Corrections (DOC), Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), and/or DJJ, DOC, DCR, and DJJ will provide DGS information and assistance, if requested. DGS shall provide the results of its study to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations, Senate Finance Committees, and Governor by October 31, 2018.

e. DGS shall work with the County of Powhatan to identify any available portion of the BJCC property that the County of Powhatan may incorporate into a regional public safety training center and other County sponsored economic development projects.  In making such determination, DGS shall consider the compatibility of the County's proposed uses with the needs of DOC and DCR identified pursuant to 3.d.

f. The Commonwealth is authorized to transfer, without financial consideration, to the County of Powhatan, pursuant to VA Code § 2.2-1150, any portion of the property identified in 3.e.  Any resulting transfer shall require the property to be used for a public purpose, excluding economic development, and shall include a requirement that at such time the County of Powhatan no longer uses the property for a public purpose, as determined by the Commonwealth, the property shall revert back to the Commonwealth.

g. DGS working with DJJ and DOC, shall determine if the BJCC wastewater treatment plant and the BJCC domestic water supply system are capable of treating wastewater and supplying domestic water in excess of DOC's present and future anticipated needs and in excess of DJJ's and DOC's obligations to provide such wastewater treatment and treatment and supply of domestic water under existing agreements with the County of Goochland, the County of Powhatan and the James River Juvenile Detention Commission.

h. The Commonwealth is authorized to treat wastewater on behalf of the County of Powhatan, up to the excess treatable wastewater volume determined in 3.g., at the cost of its treatment as determined by DJJ.  The Commonwealth is authorized to sell to the County of Powhatan treated domestic water up to the excess treatable domestic water volume determined in 3.g., at the cost of its treatment and supply as determined by DJJ and DOC.

i. All costs incurred by DGS to perform the requirements in Item F, shall be billable by DGS to the appropriate public bodies, identified in paragraph F., that DGS determines is receiving benefit from its work to satisfy the requirements of this section."
