Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) primarily involves the renovation of existing facilities with some construction of new water facilities. The CIP projects are prioritized to support and enhance the district's efforts in promoting the best possible service capability to the district's customers.
The VOMWD Capital Improvement Program Budget provides funding for individual capital projects consisting of improvements and repairs to the water distribution system, pump stations, and storage tanks, and the construction of new facilities as required.
Long Range Capital Program develops the estimated annual expenditure required for the next five fiscal years. Rehabilitation is performed only on facilities that have ended their useful lives or are in an advanced state of deterioration or subject to improvements by another utility or government entity (e.g., county proposes a street overlay along the alignment of a somewhat leaky main).
System Improvements are most typically related to the development and delivery of water supply. These projects are constructed on an "as needed" basis and are funded from a combination of bond/loan funding, connection fee income, and water rate revenue.
