Water & Sewer Capital Improvement

Water & Sewer Capital Improvement

What is the Public Works Capital Improvement Program?

The adopted six-year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is largely based on the Comprehensive Water and Wastewater Master Plan completed and approved by the Board of County Commissioners in December 2011. The comprehensive plan provides a 20-year projection of system needs based on current population growth trends (2.4% during the planning window), population distribution trends and historical demand data, among a number of other factors. The adopted CIP addresses the water and wastewater system needs for improvement, expansion, maintenance, rehabilitation and renewal. The CIP plan strives to strike a balance between the system expansion needs and the ongoing maintenance needs, while ensuring the capacity and affordability of the system.

About Capital Improvement

The Engineering Division of Public Works is responsible for the management and implementation of those capital improvement projects necessary to maintain and expand our water and wastewater utility system to meet the current and future needs of our customers.

Union County Public Works funds the capital improvement program from rates and fees charged to our customers. Our current capital improvement program was developed from those projects identified in the 2011 Water and Sewer Master Plan approved by the Board of County Commissioners which includes those improvement necessary to assure sufficient system capacity to serve future development, such as water and wastewater treatment plants and major transmission lines.
