Capital Improvement Program
In March 2017, a Water System Master Plan update was adopted by the District’s Board of Directors.
- A capital needs analysis for a 15-year period from 2017 through 2031 was also prepared based on specific recommendations in the updated master plan.
- The capital needs analysis is a planning tool for the development of the District’s Capital Improvement Program.
- The updated master plan does not represent a financial commitment by the Board of Directors, other than those Capital Improvement Program funds already approved and adopted.
In the updated Water System Master Plan, the District’s capital needs are divided into five categories: supply, transmission, distribution, storage, and special projects.
- Water Main Replacement Projects represent a large portion of the costs within the Distribution Project Category.
- The estimated total cost for all projects recommended in the capital needs analysis from 2017 through 2031 is approximately $473 million (note that this total includes service payments totaling approximately $102 million on existing bond debt).
The estimated costs for all projects in each of the five categories are shown below.
