Our Master Plan is a comprehensive planning document identifying existing and future planned water supply sources, demands and a list of capital projects necessary to assure consistent and effective operations of the water system.
Simply put, we have a plan to make sure our customers have what they need, when they need it. We use data and history to identify potential problem areas and schedule repairs before a problem occurs, when possible, to maintain service. We also construct new projects and install pipelines where necessary.
Portions of our system are quite old and experiencing an increase in leaks, service disruptions and potential entry points for contamination of the system. Ongoing repair costs and the value of water lost, plus increased risk to the safety and integrity of the water supply make funding pipeline replacement a priority for the agency.
If you have seen us out and about working in the community, this is the place you can read up on what we are doing.
