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 below are active CIP projects reviewed annually by the district’s staff to allow the program to be more responsive to changing needs, regulations, funding availability, and demand projections. The 2020-2021 Fiscal Year Adopted Budget includes a detailed list of identified future projects included in the five-year capital improvement plan.
2020-21 Capital Improvement Program
|Project||Type||Description||Current Phase||Projected Completion|
|Automated Metering Infrastructure||Water Meter||This project which has been accomplished within several phases to replace all District water meters with automated metering technology, is near completion. This District is currently in the final phase of meter replacements.||Installations||March 2021|
|Plant 134 Improvements and Membrane Replacement||Water||Three separate projects will be used to 1) enhance security and communications, 2) assess treatment options for source water quality issues and enhance sludge removal processes, and 3) continue the phased replacement of treatment modules at the District’s surface water treatment plant.|
The District currently in the process of replacing the fourth of five membrane trains at the treatment plant. The District has solicited proposals to complete the design and implementation of a new granular activated carbon treatment system.
|Sterling Natural Resource Center||New Wastewater|
|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|
|East-Side Surface Water Treatment Plant|
|This project is proposed to add operational efficiency, flexibility and redundancy to the District’s water production and distribution system. The District has solicited proposals from engineering consultants to prepare a Preliminary Design Report (PDR) for the potential treatment facility.||Planning||November 2021|
|Storage Tank Rehabilitation||Water|
Involves systematic rehabilitation of existing tanks in order to ensure their dependability and years of future service. The District is currently bidding the construction work to rehabilitate the Plant 108 reservoir.

|General Facilities Rehabilitation/Relocation||Water/ Wastewater||These line items involve various projects such as security upgrades, and improving the aesthetics of buildings at plant sites; it also provides a budget for relocating facilities in conjunction with City street or storm drain improvement projects. The District is currently designing the relocation of the Elm Street Water pipeline to facilitate a City street widening project.||Design||January 2021|
|Facility Repairs and Rehabilitations||Water/ Wastewater||These projects will repair existing District Water Production facilities in order to extend the useful life and enhance the service reliability to the community.|
The District is currently designing a replacement hydro-pneumatic system at Plant 101 to boost water to 37 homes as the only water source.
