This comprehensive report of Western’s Capital Improvement and Facilities Plan (CIFP) was created to look ahead and take the organization to the next level. Historically, we have budgeted, planned, operated, and designed systems and processes to establish a well-rounded organization to serve our customers. We continually search for opportunities for enhancements in our planning efforts. During our capital improvement planning process, we recognized a chance to better serve our customers, staff, and organization.
By creating a thorough evaluation process for capital improvement projects and communicating our vision for how all the pieces come together, we are setting a higher standard.
Western continues to plan for and invest in water supply projects that increase regional water reliability. Increasing the availability and use of local water allows us to reduce our reliance on more expensive imported water from northern California.
