Capital Replacement Program

The District is committed to performing continual maintenance within the distribution systems: 

  • Booster Stations
  • Equipment
  • Pressure Regulating Systems
  • Water Mains
  • Water Tanks
  • Wells

The Capital Replacement Program (CRP) was established in 1997 to have District personnel replace the District's aging pipeline. Old steel lines, that are often undersized are replaced with larger pipes. The benefit is better water quality, better fire flow protection, less leaks, and improved service reliability.

Prioritizing

The District prioritizes the capital replacement project according to need. Currently, the District is developing a Capital Improvement Plan that will incorporate the remaining infrastructure that will need to be replaced. 

Plans

Total as of November 2018: 718,054 linear feet since 1997. Over 135 miles of pipe has been replaced. Approximately 225,000 linear feet need to be replaced.
