Sample Highlights from the Capital Improvement Plan

Project ID Project Title Project Start Year Project Description Project Spend Total Page Ref Project Satus
548398 Turbidimeter Replacements 2023 "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 This project replaces 28 outdated turbidimeters at the Water Treatment Plant.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." 130000 67 Ongoing
548446 Back-Up Plant Pumps & SCADA Integration 2023 "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- 23." 20000 70 Ongoing
548535 Bacon Booster Pump Station & New Variable Frequency Drive and Components 2023 "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." 60000 77 Ongoing
548552 Bacon Pump Station Security Improvements 2023 "This project will design new security features for the pump station, predominately new fencing and security cameras." 31000 78 Ongoing
548609 Leak Detection Equipment 2023 "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." 10000 81 Ongoing

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:

  1. A listing of the capital projects or equipment to be purchased
  2. The projects ranked in order of preference
  3. The plan for financing the projects
  4. A timetable for the construction or completion of the project
  5. Justification for the project
  6. 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. Citylitics has 20,000 plus available CIPs, how can we help you?
