Five-Year Capital Improvement Program

The Santa Clara Valley Water District's Fiscal Year 2017-21 Five-Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP) that was adopted on May 10, 2016 is a projection of the district’s capital funding for planned capital projects from Fiscal Year 2016/17 through Fiscal Year 2020/21. The purpose of the CIP is to document planned district projects to help integrate district work with the larger community by aligning district planning with other local agency planning efforts.

The plan includes 65 projects totaling $4.16 billion. Approximately 17 percent of this amount, $711 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 $1.2 billion, which will generate or sustain between 12,000 and 24,000 jobs in the private sector. The plan includes 30 projects to improve, repair, or replace infrastructure ($2.3 billion), 19 projects to increase flood protection ($1.1 billion), 8 environmental restoration, enhancement and mitigation projects ($109 million), 3 projects to repair or maintain District buildings and grounds ($74 million), and 5 projects to upgrade or expand existing information technology ($39 million).
