The goals of the Groundwater Well Facility Asset Management Plan (GWFAMP) are to:
- Maximize the value of the investment of ratepayers dollars by extending asset life to its fullest cost effective term.
- Maintain groundwater well assets by developing a plan for long-term rehabilitation and/or replacement. The objective is to rehabilitate and/or replace groundwater wells as needed.
- Be able produce 100% of the District’s total peak water demand, with a 15% safety factor, solely from groundwater wells.
- Develop an inventory or asset register of all of the District’s groundwater wells and related assets.
The GWFAMP is to be used as a planning tool during annual capital improvement program (CIP) budget discussions with the Board. The Plan does not represent a financial commitment by the Board, other than those CIP funds already approved and adopted. Similar to the District’s other asset management plans, it is anticipated that the GWFAMP will be amended periodically in the future.
