Five-Year Capital Improvement Program


The Resolution to adopt the Santa Clara Valley Water District's Fiscal Year 2022-26 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) was approved by the Board of Directors on May 11, 2021. The CIP is a projection of Valley Water’s capital funding requirements for planned capital projects from Fiscal Year 2021/22 through Fiscal Year 2025/26. 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 68 projects totaling $8.021 billion. Approximately 16 percent of this amount, $1.3 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 ($5.4 billion), 17 projects to increase flood protection ($1.9 billion), 12 environmental restoration, enhancement and mitigation projects ($215 million), 2 projects to repair or maintain District buildings and grounds ($59 million), and 6 projects to upgrade or expand existing information technology ($50 million).
