The Capital Improvement Program is a five (5) year program that is updated annually to identify and prioritize improvements to OCWA’s Water System.
Like many utilities across the country, OCWA has an aging infrastructure in need of replacement and rehabilitation. Projects to address these issues are chosen based on periodic master planning that looks at numerous factors, including infrastructure age, condition, and risk of failure, regulatory requirements, and changes in demand. These projects focus on rehabilitation, replacement, and upgrades to our water treatment, pumping and storage facilities, and major transmission mains within the distribution system.
Projects range from several thousand to several million dollars. Over the past ten years, $129Million has been reinvested in new and renovated tanks, mains, pump stations and treatment facilities.
