The Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority in Florida faces several infrastructure challenges in providing clean and reliable water to its customers. One of the main challenges is the aging infrastructure that requires significant investment to ensure its continued reliability and effectiveness. The water authority also faces challenges in managing the increasing water demands due to population growth and climate change. Additionally, the water supply system needs to invest in improving its water treatment and distribution system to reduce leaks and spills and to ensure that it meets regulatory standards for environmental protection. Despite these challenges, the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority is committed to providing efficient and sustainable water services to its customers through targeted investments and strategic planning.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
Replace 12″ PVC Line
This approximately 1.5 mile long pipeline interconnects the 24″ Kings Highway Transmission Main, the 36″ Southern Regional Transmission Main and the 42″ Phase 2a Regional Loop Interconnect. It serves as a valuable intertie which can provide a backup water feed to Lake Suzy and Charlotte County in the event of a main break on the larger lines. The current pipeline was installed by GDU and it will be replaced with a larger diameter pipeline.
5 MGD Brackish Water RO Facility
This alternative water supply project would add 5 MGD AADD of safe yield to the regional system and also add a measure of drought resiliency to the regional water supply network. Brackish groundwater would be withdrawn from the Intermediate Aquifer and the Avon Park formation in the Floridan Aquifer. Reverse osmosis treatment membranes operating at an overall efficiency of 80% would be employed. Reject concentrate would be injected to a permeable zone well below the Avon Park zone. This project includes a combined clearwell for blending control.
Regional Integrated Loop – Phase 2D
This pipeline project is comprised of 12.5 miles of pipe tentatively sized as 24″ diameter running from the Phase 2B regional loop pipeline near River Road and US 41 to the Englewood Water District. This segment completes a plant-to-plant connection that will boost local and regional resiliency and facilitate transfer of water in either direction. The project includes a pump station and storage elements as well as chemical trim facilities.
Regional Integrated Loop – Phase 4
The Phase 4 Regional Integrated Loop project comprises approximately 15 miles of 24″ diameter water line commencing at the Burnt Store WTP and extending north to the Authority’s Phase 1A transmission main on the south side of the Peace River in the town of Cleveland on the outskirts of Punta Gorda. This project also includes storage and pumping elements.
ASR Wellfield Expansion
Success for the Peace River Facility is based upon capitalizing on seasonal storage and can either be accomplished with raw water off-stream reservoirs, or currently, as potable water ASR wells. This project will bring another 12 ASR wells online.

How to Read a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for Business Development?
When a city, municipality or state issues a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP), it can be overwhelming and daunting, but there are a few key things you need to investigate. Let’s start with the definition of CIP – A Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) contains all the individual capital projects, equipment purchases, and major studies for a local government; in conjunction with construction and completion schedules, and in consort with financing plans. The plan provides a working blueprint for sustaining and improving the community’s infrastructures. It coordinates strategic planning, financial capacity, and physical development. A CIP stands at the epicenter of a government’s Planning, Public Works, and Finance departments. When a CIP is issued, it typically includes the following information:
- A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
- The projects ranked in order of preference
- The plan for financing the projects
- A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
- Justification for the project
- Explanation of expenses for the project
Now, for business development, while the capital plan is interesting, the capital program is for capital expenditures that extends five to ten years beyond the capital budget. Knowing the difference is important so you can influence upcoming program versus just responding to an RFP. If reading the CIP makes your head explode, or you want to save time, Request a Demo of Citylitics CIP dashboard with over 20,000 CIPs from USA and Canada.
