Five-Year Capital Improvement Program


The Santa Clara Valley Water District's Final Fiscal Year 2020-24 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) was adopted on May 14, 2019.  The Final CIP is a projection of the district’s capital funding requirements for planned capital projects from Fiscal Year 2019/20 through Fiscal Year 2023/24. The purpose of the CIP is to document planned district projects and help integrate district work with the larger community by aligning district planning with other local agency planning efforts.

The plan includes 67 projects totaling $5.6 billion. Approximately 23 percent of this amount, $1.219 billion, is anticipated to be funded by outside sources through reimbursements and cost-sharing partnerships. The program includes water supply, flood protection, water resources stewardship, buildings and grounds and information technology projects.

Over the next five years, the total estimate for construction contracts to be awarded is approximately $1 billion, which will generate or sustain between 10,000 and 20,000 jobs in the private sector. Projects in the CIP will improve, repair, replace, or construct infrastructure. There are 28 Water Supply projects ($3.4 billion), 19 projects to increase flood protection ($1.5 billion), 10 environmental restoration, enhancement and mitigation projects ($162 million), 2 projects to repair or maintain District buildings and grounds ($54 million), and 8 projects to upgrade or expand existing information technology ($55 million).
