Five-Year Capital Improvement Program

Content

The Santa Clara Valley Water District's Final Fiscal Year 2019-23 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) was adopted on May 8, 2018.  The Final CIP is a projection of the district’s capital funding requirements for planned capital projects from Fiscal Year 2018/19 through Fiscal Year 2022/23. 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 61 projects totaling $4.2 billion. Approximately 16 percent of this amount, $672 million, 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 estimated award of construction contracts 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 27 Water Supply projects ($2.0 billion), 17 projects to increase flood protection ($1.3 billion), 9 environmental restoration, enhancement and mitigation projects ($182 million), 2 projects to repair or maintain District buildings and grounds ($60 million), and 6 projects to upgrade or expand existing information technology ($55 million).
