The San Juan Water District faces several key infrastructure challenges, including upgrading and replacing aging water treatment and distribution systems, ensuring adequate water supply and storage capacity to meet demand, managing water quality and treatment to meet regulatory requirements, and adapting to the impacts of climate change on water resources. Additionally, the district must balance the need for infrastructure improvements with the cost of these projects, while also ensuring reliable and affordable water service for its customers in the Sacramento region.
Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan
Project Start Year
Project Spend Total
“A turbidimeter is an instrument that measures water clarity. This project replaces 28 outdated turbidimeters
at the Water Treatment Plant. This represents the bulk of the turbidimeters used in the water treatment
process. This equipment lasts for approximately 7 years before becoming obsolete. The turbidimeters were
purchased in FY 2021-22 and will be installed in FY 2022-23.”
Back-Up Plant Pumps & SCADA Integration
“The District’s Crown Point pump station provides pressurized drinking water to the retail service area and the
entire District campus, including the water treatment plant. That water is critical for maintaining water
treatment plant operations as it is used in various treatment processes such as the chemical feed system,
and the belt press process. The back-up plant pumps exist to provide pumping capabilities if/when the Crown
Point pump station is off line. Historically the back-up pumps have had to be turned on manually. By
integrating those pumps into the District’s SCADA system, the system will automatically switch the pumps
on if Crown Point goes off line, either intentionally or unintentionally, greatly improving system reliability.
Originally planned to be completed in Fiscal Year 2021-22, it has now been delayed until Fiscal Year 2022-
Bacon Booster Pump Station & New Variable Frequency Drive and Components
“This project will install a variable frequency drive on pump number five at the Bacon Booster Pump Station,
along with other components to complement the generator replacement project described above. The existing
motor drive for pump number five is either on or off and therefore the pump runs at full speed regardless of
the system demands. Replacing the drive with a variable frequency drive will provide the District the ability to
optimize the operation of the pump station based on the current demands on the distribution system.”
Bacon Pump Station Security Improvements
“This project will design new security features for the pump station, predominately new fencing and security
Leak Detection Equipment
“A leak detector consists of speakers in a headset, worn by the operator, hooked up to a microphone that is
on the ground. The microphone transmits the sound of leaking water to the wearer of the headset. The Field
Services departments current leak detection equipment is old and in need of replacement.”

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.
