Five-Year Capital Improvement Program


The Santa Clara Valley Water District's Final Fiscal Year 2021-25 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) was approved for release on June 30, 2020. The Final CIP is a projection of Valley Water’s capital funding requirements for planned capital projects from Fiscal Year 2020/21 through Fiscal Year 2024/25. The purpose of the CIP is to document planned Valley Water projects and help integrate Valley Water work with the larger community by aligning Valley Water planning with other local agency planning efforts.

The plan includes 67 projects totaling $6.5 billion. Approximately 19 percent of this amount, $1.218 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.

Projects in the CIP will improve, repair, replace, or construct infrastructure. There are 31 Water Supply projects ($4 billion), 17 projects to increase flood protection ($1.7 billion), 10 environmental restoration, enhancement and mitigation projects ($176 million), 2 projects to repair or maintain District buildings and grounds ($48 million), and 7 projects to upgrade or expand existing information technology ($53 million).
