Capital Projects

Each year the District adopts an Annual Operating and Capital Improvement Budget through a public budget review and approval process.  This process carefully analyzes the District’s capital needs and financial resources so that necessary projects can be prioritized in a fiscally responsible way.

The Capital Project process identifies long-term and short-term capital improvements including fixed assets, land acquisitions, building improvements, reservoirs, wells, pump stations, pipes, machinery, vehicles, and field and office equipment.  The selection criteria are based on a variety of methods as follows:

  • Field observation;
  • Historical maintenance data; and
  • As recommended by adopted master plans, other related planning documents, and regulatory requirements. 

The District serves to ensure the quality, quantity & reliability of the water supply in a cost effective manner.  The Capital Improvement Process has been developed to meet these goals.
