Capital Improvement Program

The District's Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a five-year planning schedule with each year approved in the correlating fiscal year. Long-term capital planning is a dynamic process and is part of the district's overall strategic plan. Capital planning involves identifying current and future needs and prioritizing them through an assessment process.

Projects listed in the CIP are reviewed annually by the district's staff to allow the program to be more responsive to changing needs, regulations, funding availability, and demand projections.

Treatment
In response to the drought and SBX7-7 which mandates that the District must cut 20% of its use by the year 2020, the District is planning and constructing a water recycling facility. The facility will allow the District to treat wastewater to a point that it can be recharged back into the groundwater basin and reused for domestic purpose. Initially, the facility will treat approximately 8 million gallons per day and will be expandable to be able to treat ultimate build out of approximately 10 million gallons per day.Procurement
