The Capital Improvement Program (CIP) directs utility line replacements and specific projects to address current and projected needs of the community’s water and sewer system. Following is a list of Current Projects underway and projects recently completed. Recent bid results are available here.

When the District must relocate the point of service connection for a property, it is the responsibility of the property owner to move their service (water or sewer) to the new point of location.  Additional information on this policy can be found by clicking here.
